Clip-On Live Fiber Detector KI6171
A clip-on live fiber detector is a handy, simple tool - used to identify live fiber traffic, or used with a tone generator to trace a fiber route. Very long distance operating range of up to 200 Km makes it suitable for use where a VFL cannot reach.
- Single-handed identifier operation
- Easy to use live fiber detector
- Thumb lock
- Displays traffic direction with audible alert
- Approximate fiber power meter display
- Supplied with 4 heads for ribbon / 250 μ coated fiber, 900 μ fiber, 2 mm & 3 mm patch lead
- Uses 2 x AAA alkaline batteries. Auto on / off
- Durable metal housing and quality construction
- 12 month warranty
- Full QA report
