AFL OFI-BI Optical Fiber Identifier:

  • Optical fiber identifier (without power meter)
  • Determines transmission direction and if fiber is live
  • Usable on standard and bend-insensitive single-mode and multimode fibers
  • World-class signal detection sensitivity
  • Trigger lock, positive stop for optimum detection
  • Universal head eliminates the need to change adapter heads for jacketed, coated or ribbon fibers
  • 2.4" color touchscreen with backlight
  • Touchscreen features provide simple to follow setup and clear to read results

The OFI-BIPM and OFI-BI are easy to use tools that determine if a fiber is live, the transmission direction, relative core power on standard, and bend-insensitive on both multimode and single-mode fibers. Its positive stop plunger mechanism provides the right pressure to assure proper detection while keeping loss to a minimum. The design assures traffic will not be interrupted and fibers will not be damaged.

The OFI-BI fiber identifier eliminates the need to access the optical fiber at a connection or splice point eliminating the possibility of interrupting service to a valued customer. The OFI-BIPM model provides an integrated optical power meter for verification of power levels during installation or troubleshooting activities. The universal head of these OFI's eliminates the need to change adapter heads for jacketed, coated or ribbon fibers, making them extremely easy to use in the field. The touchscreen features provide simple to follow setup and clear to read results.

Please note - there are two models in this product series. The main differences are as follows:

  • OFI-BI - fiber identifier
  • OFI-BIPM - fiber identifier with power meter
