The compact Visual Light Source has an output power of 1 mW/0 dBm. Two alkaline batteries provide 15+ hours of operation, or you can use the AC adapter for continuous operation. A universal SC/ST/FC connector is compatible with both single-mode and multimode fiber optic cable.
The Visual Fault Locator is a powerful light source features three adjustable output settings: 0 dBm, +3 dBm, and +8 dBm. Testing short runs? Use the 0 setting. Need to go a few miles down the road? Crank it up to 8 dBm.
