Detecting Active Fibers - CheckActive™

SimpliFiber Pro’s meter CheckActive™ mode lets you quickly determine if a fiber is connected to active equipment. This mode helps you locate active links and avoid exposure to hazardous radiation.

To use CheckActive mode:

  1.  Press MODE until CheckActive™ appears.
  2.  Connect the meter to a fiber. The meter admits a solid tone indicating fiber activity.


*Ambient light can activate the CheckActive™ tone. To avoid this, keep a patch cord connected to the meter if the meter is in CheckActive mode.*
