Fiber testing equipment for accurate results every time

Featured Test and Inspection Products

Accurate results and excellent customer service define AFL's test and inspection equipment

AFL's test and inspection products consistently meet and exceed customer needs. We deliver exceptional fiber optic testing equipment and outstanding service. Our ISO 9001:2008 certification and quality practices ensure you receive excellent products and documentation.

AFL products are designed to provide accurate results every time. They are engineered to endure outside plant environments, and feature intuitive user interfaces that provide quick results without complicated training requirements. Product lines include optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs), loss testing kits, inspection and cleaning, fiber identifiers, fault locators and more.


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.

xWDM Test

AFL understands that the same WDM technologies that make high capacity Cell Backhaul, Metro Ethernet and Broadband Triple-play services possible also present complex testing challenges. We’ve seen how technicians and engineers have struggled to apply legacy measurement products to test or troubleshoot today’s cutting edge Metro and Access networks. In response, we’ve developed innovative new products, like the WDM900 Lightwave Test Set, that incorporate exclusive features designed to simplify WDM testing and enable even first time users to identify, document and resolve the cause of WDM network issues or outages.

Loss Test Kits

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.

Inspection and Cleaning

Connector integrity is crucial to reliable network performance. AFL offers solutions ranging from standalone inspection scopes to probe options for direct connection to OTDRs or a PC. Successful inspection of fiber connectors is dependent upon cleaning with fiber optic-grade cleaners. See our full line of One-Click Cleaners, Cletop cassette cleaners and cleaning sticks, available individually or packaged in convenient cleaning kits.

Fiber Identifiers and Fault Locators

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.

Whether you’re installing fiber optic cable or testing a splice with our equipment, the job is done right. And if you need expert advice, our dedicated customer service representatives and support staff are always here to help.
