OTDRs and Fault Locators

AFL's OTDRs range from simple fault locating to multifunction testing. Exclusive Touch and Test™ brings advanced functionality in an easy-to-use interface. TRM™ certification and reporting software provides a PC analysis tool for viewing, managing, archiving and printing OTDR traces along with comprehensive reports compliant to TIA/ISO guidelines.

Optical Power Meters

AFL offers a full range of optical power meters to support FTTx deployments, fiber network testing, certification reporting capabilities and basic power measurements.

Loss Test Sets

AFL provides loss testing capabilities for all budgets. Simple power meters and light sources offer reliable loss measurements. Advanced kits add functionality including in-unit storage of test results and TRM reporting software which enables technicians to organize test data, apply test rules for pass/fail analysis and build custom test reports using industry accepted templates.

Optical Fiber Identifiers

Optical Fiber Identifiers (OFI) allow technicians to identify in service fibers without interrupting traffic. Visual Fault Locators (VFL) inject visible red light into an optical fiber to enable technicians to quickly locate sharp bends, breaks, or simply trace a fiber in cluttered fiber areas.

Optical Light Sources

AFL offers a full range of light sources for testing single-mode and/or multimode fiber networks. Read more about our solutions for testing telco and broadband networks, FTTx systems, LAN/WAN networks and more.

Fiber Optic Inspection

It is a fact that fiber end-face contamination is a major cause of network outages and downtime. AFL fiber inspection products enable network technicians and other personnel to safely inspect fiber endfaces for contamination and verify the effectiveness of fiber cleaning procedures.

Visual Fault Identifiers

A visual fault identifier or visual fault locator (VFI / VFL) is a visible red laser designed to inject visible light energy into a fiber. Sharp bends, breaks, faulty connectors and other faults will “leak” red light allowing technicians to visually spot the defects.

Talk Sets and Attenuators

Fiber Optic Attenuators provide technicians with a means of adjusting an optical signal level. Applications include field and laboratory testing of system performance over a range of attenuation values (optical path lengths) and tuning and verifying performance of new transmitters to specific networks at time of installation. AFL offers a range of attenuators providing test options to technicians.


Test results manager (TRM) is an all-in-one analysis, viewer and reporting tool of fiber test results. TRM top-level icons let users quickly choose between viewing results by jobs, generating an acceptance report, viewing OTDR traces, loss or certification results or batch editing OTDR traces.


NOYES® certification and loss test kits from AFL are used to certify new fiber installations and locate faults in deployed fiber optic networks. Certification test kits measure the length of fibers and perform Tier 1 loss tests providing pass/fail feedback to users to ensure fibers meet TIA/ISO/EN standards or user values. Certification kits have an integrated visual fault locator (VFL), optical light source (OLS), and optical power meter (OPM). Kits are also available with integrated single-mode and multimode optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs) which can perform Tier 2 testing. Loss measurement, length and OTDR results can be saved and uploaded to PC for further analysis and/or archiving.

Network Simulators

NOYES® fiber optic network simulators from AFL are custom-built “fiber boxes” intended to duplicate installed fiber optic facilities. Training schools, laboratory testing and field troubleshooting are just few of the many applications for units. Network simulators include up to 100 km of fiber with user-specified events such as good and bad fusion splices, mechanical splices and connectors. Both benchtop and rack-mount units are available.
