fiber optic visual fault locatorGREENLEE 170XL Visual Fault Locator
The Greenlee 170XL Visual Fault Locator is a vital tool for accurately and expeditiously diagnosing bending losses and breaks in optical fibers as well as testing connectors. In the event a fiber is bent, a red laser light appears through the cable jacket.

FastCAM fiber connectorsLeviton FastCAM Fiber Connectors and Installation Kits
Leviton’s new FastCAM pre-polished connectors and installation kits provide precision mechanical termination of single –mode or multimode fiber. No proprietary tools, epoxy, or time-consuming hand polishing are required. Strip the buffer, cleave and insert the fiber into the FastCAM connector, release the factory installed wedge clip, and you have immediate, low insertion-loss connection. View more connectors
