Visual Fault Locator Market
Visual fault locator is also known as a visual fault identifier. The product can be defined as a visible red laser intended to introduce visible light energy into a fiber in order to find out faulty connectors, breaks, sharp bends, and other faults in a device. The product is gaining traction among technicians as it helps them in visually inspecting and finding out fiber defects efficiently. In this tool, a laser diode of 650 nm wavelength is used.
A visual fault locator emits bright red light beam, which can be easily detected from a distance. In order to use this tool, it is connected to one end of a fiber and then the fiber is located at the other end. Growing use of this tool for carrying out simple end-to-end continuity checks is resulting into high demand avenues for enterprises in the visual fault locator market.
Major players in the global visual fault locator market are growing participation in various strategies such as mergers, acquisitions, partnerships, and collaborations. These tactics are helping vendors in expanding their regional presence as well as production capabilities. Apart from this, many enterprises are actively investing in research and development activities in order to launch innovative products. Owing to the presence of all these activities, the market for visual fault locator is estimated to expand at decent pace in the upcoming years.
Visual Fault Locator: Introduction
- A visual fault locator allows a technician to visually spot detects by emitting a red laser at the fault location.
- A visual fault locator is an ideal tool for detecting a large number of defects that occur in OTDRs (Optical time-domain reflectometer) “blind-spots” or dead-zones.
- The various types of visual fault locators available in the market include fiber tracers, visual fault finder, visual fault indicator, visual fault identifier, visual fault detector, visual fault light, and visual fault locator pen. These are used in various applications such as installation, fault finding, continuity checking, polarity checking, and others.
Rise in Demand for Fiber Tracers
- Fiber tracers are expected to be the fastest growing segment based on type in the visual fault locator market during the forecast period.
- Various problems encountered in troubleshooting fiber optic networks are related to making proper connections. Fiber optics use infrared light (IR), which cannot be seen by the human eye. Fiber tracer visual fault locator solves this problem by locating breakpoint, bending, or cracking of the fiberglass. Thus, demand for fiber tracers is growing across the world.
- The establishment of new smart grids, and installation & rearrangement of telecommunication lines and communication cables are the major drivers that help in surging the growth of the visual fault locator market.
- Reduced profit margins and the presence of unorganized manufacturers hinders the entry of national and international suppliers. These are the major restraints of the global visual fault locator market.
