Fluke Networks Fiber OneShot™ PRO - FOS-100-S-VFL
VFLs work well for exposed lengths of fibre near a patch panel by illuminating bad connections and breaks. They are not very helpful for cable runs more than a few meters, or when the cable not visible or accessible, or when the laser light can’t penetrate the jacket.
Optical Time Domain Reflectometers (OTDR) provides graphical data and analysis along the entire length of a cable, way beyond the reach of a VFL, but they can be expensive and require more time to and skill to operate.
Fiber OneShot PRO in fibre optic toolkit fills the gap between a VFL and an OTDR. These optical inspection systems have the simplicity of a VFL, and provide distance and power information on high losses, breaks, and the end of the fibre. They also identify live fibre making them perfect for fibre cable troubleshooting.

Detects optical signals from 1250nm to 1625nm and shows ACTIVE LINE if a signal is there.
Looks for a signal every 3 seconds after the first detection. +7 dB maximum input power.
1 ± user-configurable Index of Refraction (IOR) error ± the incident location error.
2 ± user-configurable Index of Refraction (IOR) error ± the incident location error.
3 Detects the location of an incident that has a reflectance larger than -62 dB. Detects incidents >2 m after the bulkhead connector when the bulkhead reflectance is <35 dB. Detects incidents >3 m after an incident when the incident reflectance is <35 dB.
4 Detects incidents >10 m after the bulkhead connector or any prior incident when the bulkhead reflectance is <-35 dB and the reflectance of any prior incident is <-35 dB. The maximum link loss prior to the incident is <7 dB.
