The CableMaster VFL is used for continuity testing and fault location on optical fibres and components in the singlemode and multimode range. Depending on the application, a range of more than 5 km can be achieved. A universal adapter enables the connection of all common optical 2.5 mm connector systems (e.g. SC). A screw-on adapter for 1.25 mm (e.g. LC) is also available. The operating time in flashing mode is approx. 40 hours.

Thanks to its compact and ergonomic design, the visual fault detector is ideal for daily use in all fibre optic application areas, e.g. in data centres, in the field, in industrial environments and in laboratories. The CableMaster VFL from Softing IT Networks is characterised by several practical features, such as its special, roll-proof shape, the captive dust cap and its handy form. The CableMaster VFL is easy to operate with just one hand and is powered by two standard AAA batteries. The practical strap allows the fault detector to be hung up at any time if required.
