Suitable for troubleshooting dark, single-mode fibers in local area, metro area and FTTx networks, the OFL250-50 locates cable cuts, open or high-loss splices, fiber bends and high loss/reflectance connections. The high-contrast display is clear and bright in any lighting condition, including direct sunlight. The OFL250-50 provides automatic and manual setup, precision event analysis, 12-hour battery life, internal data storage and USB connectivity. OTDR and OPM test ports are equipped with tool-free adapters.
