Wilcom Part No.: F6230A

  • $ 275.00 or

The Model F6230A is a streamline universal Laser Fault Locator. Commonly known as a VFL, the new product Model F6230A, is a pencil style VFL that features a universal connector accepting any optical connector style with a 2.5mm ferrule. It operates on a single 1.5V AA alkaline battery keeping the overall size to a minimum while providing long battery life.

The VFL output is from a 650nm laser providing visibility to 5 km. Unlike many VFLs today, the F6230A features a choice of continuous or modulated output and a low battery indicator to alert the user when it is time to change batteries. The universal connector eliminates the inconvenience of having to use a patch cable for direct connection to fiber under test if connector styles are dissimilar.

This single basic tool is one that all installers, and maintenance personnel should have in their tool kit. It is the most economical test tool for quickly verifying continuity, checking the validity of patch cables before or after installation, test and find breaks in LANs, verifying short lengths of installed fiber, or looking for cracked fiber in splice cases, bad connectors, tight crimps in fiber cable, backbone breaks or anywhere light continuity needs checking.


  • Compact, Pencil-Style Unit
  • Injects visible red light, viewable to 5 km
  • Singlemode and Multimode Applications
  • Includes 2.5mm Universal Adapter (SC, FC, ST)

The Wilcom Fiber Optic Pocket Visual Fault Locator is part of the broad line of fiber optic test equipment available from FIS. These include fiber optic Light Sources, Power Meters, Loss Test Sets, Visual Fault Locators, Continuity Testers and OTDR's,

The Wilcom Fiber Optic Pocket Visual Fault Locator is a versatile fiber optic testing device that you can also use for detecting points of loss in fiber optic patchcords, patchpanels, enclosures, and connectors. You can also use this fiber optic visual fault locator to identify optical fibers in multi-fiber cables. The light from this compact yet powerful VFL can be seen up to 5 km.

This Fiber Optic Visual Fault Locator can be used for both singlemode and multimode applications and features a universal fiber optic adapter that accepts any fiber optic connector having a 2.5mm ferrule.
