Introducing the New JDSU FI-60 Live Fiber Identifier (LFI)


Inadvertently disconnecting an active fiber during installation, test, and troubleshooting is a common cause for dropped service. The new JDSU FI-60 LFI helps users easily detect the optical signal without disconnecting fiber or disrupting network traffic. The FI-60 LFI also includes the unique JDSU SafeChek™ system to ensure safe, repeatable engagement with most fiber types without having to change out costly dies.

The FI-60 easily converts to an optical power meter (OPM), doubling its investment value while reducing the number of tools carried. Here are several benefits that the FI-60 LFI provides,making it ideal for installation, service, maintenance, or troubleshooting in most fiber applications:

·         Avoid network downtime and damage with the repeatable SafeChek easy-pull trigger system.
·         Get the job done faster with a single LFI head that is compatible with multiple cable diameters (250 ┬Ám to 3 mm jacketed fibers).
·         Increase reliability and avoid false readings with an integrated ambient light shield.
·         Buy one tool and save! The FI-60 LFI easily converts to a fully functioning OPM that stores, recalls, and exports results to a PC via USB – providing two tools in one.
