Hobbes FC-2005 Fiber Checker Pro Pen Style Lightweight Visual Fault Locator
The FC-2005 Fiber Checker Pro is used for checking the defects of a fiber cable. It sends a visible 650nm wavelength red laser light through a fiber optic cable and the breaks or faults in the fiber will refract the light, creating a bright glow around the faulty area.
The universal connector can be used for the most common fiber interfaces such as ST/SC/FC/FA. It is suitable for testing both singlemode and multimode cables. With an optional 2.5mm to 1.25mm adapter, users can test 1.25mm fiber interfaced cables. The visibility of Fiber Checker Pro is up to 5 kilometers.
There is also a specially designed power circuit included that provides steady power which avoids unstable laser output when the battery is low. The output signal can be switched between CW or Pulse mode to get different visual effects. There is a dust proof cover which will prevent dust from getting into the inside of the interface. The cover also helps avoid incidental exposure of the laser to your eye.
