Product Code: Hilite Miniature VFI

Hilite Miniature Visual Fault Identifier

AFL Test & Inspection HiLite visible red laser source from AFL is designed to troubleshoot faults on fibre optic cables. Light generated by these units will escape from sharp bends and breaks in jacketed or bare fibres, as well as poorly mated connectors. They can quickly identify faults in fiber optic jumper cables, distribution frames, patch panels, and splice trays.

Many fibre network defects occur within the first few meters - within typical OTDR dead zones.

Read full description


HiLite is an excellent complement to any OTDR because it can locate faults inside the OTDR's dead-zone. Other applications include end-to-end continuity checks, as well as identifying connectors in patch panels and fibers during splicing operations. The universal connector interface mates with many connector styles without needing an adapter.

Trace cables in crowded or un-documented setups. A HiLite is a quick means of finding the "other end" from amongst cluttered cables. Simply connect to one end and look for the visible red light transmitted out the opposite connector.


A HiLite Visible Fault Identifier (VFI) -- or Visual Fault Locator (VFL) -- is an essential tool for fiber installation and maintenance technicians.
