New Owl PCVFL (Precision Coupled Visual Fault Locator)

 

Owl PCVFL (Precision Coupled Visual Fault Locator) New

   The OWL PCVFL (Precision Coupled Visual Fault Locator) is a light-weight, hand-held tool used to quickly troubleshoot faults in the continuity of both single mode and multi-mode fibers, especially at fiber launch points or in OTDR dead zones.  A high intensity visible red laser beam is precision-coupled into a optical fiber; breaks and micro-bends in the fiber deflect the red light into the fiber jacket, producing a red glow at the point of the fault.

Features
  • Visual Range up to 5 km (3.1 miles)
  • Optical Output -2dBm red laser
  • Optical Transmission Continuous Wave
  • Pulsed at 6 Hz w/12.5% duty cycle
  • Dimensions 4.94 x 2.75 x 1.28 in
  • Weight 6 ounces
  • CW Mode - 15 hours use on one 9v battery
  • Pulsed Mode - 120 hours use on one 9v battery
  • Low battery indicator
  • Handheld /Lightweight

Typical battery life in CW mode is 15 hours, and the short 12.5% duty cycle in pulsed mode extends the battery life to 120 hours of continuous use.

The PCVFL ships standard with ST connectors

   Additionally, the PCVFL can be used as an end-to-end visual fiber identifier, which is useful for locating fibers terminated in poorly labeled or unlabeled fiber patch panels. A single switch is used to operate the PCVFL, toggling the unit between OFF, CW (continuous wave), and Pulsed modes

Lasers such as the ones in the PCVFL produce intense beams of laser light that are harmful to the eye.
