Product Overview

VFL Series Visual Fault Locators are easy-to-use, low cost, compact and powerful red laser source designed for trouble-shooting fiber-optic cable up to 15km. They are used to identify faults in fiber jumper in ODF, FDC, patch panels, splice trays and as such it is the ideal tool for fault identification in the fiber network installation.
