If you’re looking to Sell IDEAL VFF5 Fiber Optic Visual Fault Finder

IDEAL VFF-5 Visual Fault Locator

A hand-held, battery-powered tool, the VFF projects a highly visible red light into a fiber optic cable. The operator simply looks at the length of cable and where light is seen, there is a break. The VFF is equipped with a high-power, extra long-life, 650nm laser diode which operates either in Continuous (CW) or Modulated (MOD; 1Hz Pulse) mode. A push button allows the user to select the mode while preventing accidental operation. Any breaks will be seen as a conspicuously glowing or blinking red light area (in 3mm or smaller cables). A red LED on the outer case echoes the operation mode selected.

The VFF is useful over a distance of approximately 3km (2.3mi) into multimode fiber and 4km (2.5mi) into single mode fiber and can be used with single-mode and multimode cable. Use it as a stand-alone first-line basic troubleshooting tool, or in conjunction with an OTDR to pinpoint faults. The unit is packaged in a pocket-sized, rugged metal housing and is fitted with 2.5 mm universal connector that accepts ST, SC and FC optical connectors. The VFF is also an excellent aide to technicians terminating mechanical splices or internal-splice style connectors where leaking light is an indicator of a poor fiber cleave or other misalignment.


  • Assists in the termination of “no-polish” connectors by indicating proper cleave alignment in connectors such as the MTRJ
  • Universal 2.5mm interface connects directly to ST®, SC, and FC connectors
  • Non-roll design – essential for bench top use when terminating mechanical splices or internal-splice connectors
  • Rugged, metal body with protective Santoprene® over-sleeve
