OFI-BIPM and OFI-BIPMe Optical Fiber Identifiers

The OFI-BIPM/-BIPMe optical fiber identifier is an easy-to-use tool that determines if a fiber is live, the transmission direction, and the relative core power on standard and bend-insensitive single-mode and multimode fibers. Its positive-stop trigger mechanism provides the right amount of pressure every time to assure proper detection while keeping loss to a minimum. This ensures that traffic will not be interrupted and the fiber will not be damaged.

Nicknamed “The Job saver”: The OFI-BIPM/-BIPMe removes the need to access the optical fiber at a connection or splice point, eliminating the possibility of interrupting service to a customer.

No heads to change or lose: The universal head of the OFI-BIPM/-BIPMe eliminates the need to change an adapter head for jacketed, coated, or ribbon fibers, making it extremely easy to use in the field.

Integrated optical power meter: The optical power meter mode verifies power levels during installation or troubleshooting.

Color touchscreen: The touchscreen provides simple-to-follow setup instructions and clear results that are easy to read.

Field technician favorite: The OFI-BIPM/-BIPMe is a favorite of technicians for its accuracy, ease of use, integrated power meter, and ergonomic design.

Doesn’t damage delicate fibers: The positive-stop trigger ensures that the right pressure is applied every time, while the slim head makes it easier to reach and test tightly-packed fibers without damaging them.
