When working with fiber one
Hello. I'm new here so I hope I put this post in the correct section.
When working with fiber one has to be concerned with eye safety. With that in mind is there a simple tester that will tell you what side the light is on or if you have a light at all without looking directly into the Gbic or fiber end? I have looked all over but I have not found anything. I was told that you can use smoke to tell but cans of smoke are pricy and I'm not sure if you can use them in a school. Does anyone know of such tool?
I'm not looking to test the power of the fiber but more of a pocket tester that will only tell me if I have light coming out of the Gbic or fiber connector and what side of the Gbic or patch cable the light is on so I can match "light to no light" without looking directly into the fiber end or Gbic.
do you want to test the light signal of the fiber cable? the most easier method is that connect it to a switch or other device, it will has a flicker. it is commonly used the OTDR to test. the famous brand of OTDR such JDSU, YOKOGAWA, EXFO and so on.
Vostro 400 Fails to Boot, Solid Amber Power Light I've been having trouble with my computer lately. It started maybe a month ago. I transport my computer on the weekends, so one round trip. I brought it back home once, and after hooking everything back up, I pressed the power button and it wouldn't turn on. All that happened was the power button,...

Faster Than the Speed of Light It would seem that the criticism against the neutrino experient carried out at Cern about the findings of these particles traveling faster than the speed of light is unfound.
The boffins at Cern have carried out a more refined set of experiments, in the hope that that they can (rather...

Old fiber switches and media converters I have some old fiber stuff around and decided to put it to use to get gigabit over a long run, replacing an unreliable wireless setup.
I have 2 fiber to copper media converters, Trendnet TFC-1000MSC. I was simply going to use those to extend the copper at both ends between modern gigabit...
