The FiboLocator fibre fault locator is an innovative device for spatially resolving and characterising breaks and reflective faults in optical fibres based on Correlation Optical Time Domain Reflectometry. As with a standard OTDR C-OTDR is based on analysing backscatter but uses cw laser sources. The demands on test signal and on detection complexity are low, leading to very affordable cost for OEM modules.
There are many different wavelength possibilities when using cw lasers, as the spectral width can also be customised. Two standard models are offered:-
Fibolocator 80 is suitable for online monitoring of networks with ITU grid DFB diodes, as well as for interrogation of Bragg Grating fibre sensors.
Fibolocator 2500 is specifically designed to determine fibre length in QA and production with very high resolution.
Resolution is not limited by the measurement span and it is also possible to monitor (zoom in) certain parts of the fibre because of the correlation principle. Advantages compared with pulse OTDR can also be observed in noisy fibres.
