Hobbes The FIBERID is a lightweight, rugged, easy–to–use installation and maintenance instrument designed for fast, accurate identification and traffic testing of optical signals without cutting the fiber cable or interrupting service.

Hobbes’ new FIBERID provides the functionalities required to detect and identify the direction of propagation of an in fiber signal to a sensitivity level of –40dBm at 1550nm. The clever shielding design to diminish light leakage, and maintain the power value accuracy. The identifier is designed to detect an active fiber, identify traffic direction, and measures the power transmitted through the fibers without disconnect it. Also, it uses a safe and reliable macro–bending technique that does not disrupt traffic, nor damage or overstresses the fiber.

During installing, maintenance or troubleshooting fiber work system, the FIBERID often necessary to isolate a specific fiber from a bundle without disrupting service, by simple clamping the FIBERID onto a fiber, the unit will indicate if there is no signal at 270Hz, 1KHz, 2KHz, or traffic and show signal direction, it also can measure and displays fiber core power or relative power on the LCD display, when trace the fiber cables, it can detect the optical tones, which provide by any Hobbes’ item of OPTISource series, too. The FIBERID is simple and reliable to use with one hand, just need to operate with the battery, and will enhance the performance of your staff.
