The KI 6171 Tone and Traffic Identifiers are rugged, easy to use instruments used to identify optical test tones, live traffic and optical power levels in single mode fiber. They are commonly used to positively identify fibers to avoid accidently disconnecting live systems, and for general checking of continuity, faults or mid-span loss points. The instruments are simple and reliable to use with one hand. They can detect a variety of optical tones, which can be provided by any Kingfisher laser source.
When traffic is present, an audible tone can be heard as well as LED indication of traffic direction and estimated core power.
Various field interchangeable chucks are supplied, and enable rapid re-configuration for a variety of fiber cord diameters. Chucks not in used are securely stored and conveniently carried along with the equipment in the slide-on compartment hence reducing chances of those chucks being misplaced.
The approximate core power in the fiber is measured and displayed on a two-digit display.
