Fiber Optic Visual Fault Locator KI9807A
The shirt-pocket size KI 9807A Pocket Fiber Source is a 635 nm Visual Fault locator ideal for general testing of all fiber optic systems. It is a Class 1 eyesafe laser device, even with no fiber connected. For short distance applications, 635 nm gives a brighter light than a typical 650 nm laser. The interchangeable conector is easily replaceable if it is damaged, and is less likely to cause damage to other mated connectors, since a mated connector cannot be accidentally rotated. So this is overall a safer and more reliable fiber optic VFL than a pen-style device.
- Rugged, drop-resistant construction
- User defeatable auto turn-off
- Lanyard, shirt pocket clip & padded pouch
