OP280MT Ribbon Visual Fault Locator

Advancing the World of Fiber Optics™

OptoTest_OP280The OP280MT is designed to check for breaks in a ribbon fiber and to verify correct polarity of ribbon fiber connectors, hybrid cables and distribution boxes quickly and conveniently.  Each of the twelve fibers is illuminated with bright 635nm red LASERs.

The Ribbon Fiber Visual Fault Locator can be used for single mode or multimode applications and is pre-programmed with various sequences for automatic or individual scanning of each fiber. User defined patterns can be programmed via the USB data port.

Note: Included with each OP280MT is a twelve-inch (30cm) SAVer cable available in either male or female MTP connectors. This will help prevent the output interface from potential damage or premature replacement which can create significant downtime. The SAVer cable can simply be repolished or reordered from OptoTest whenever it becomes damaged.
