    We have a long comms line between an outstation and our server. The comms
    line is fibre optic.
    Comms has been lost, how can I test the fibre optic cable. Is there a tester
    available from RS components?

    Would have had equipment down for a couple of days waiting for optical fiber
    test eqipment to arrive. Test with with trusty pen light showed we had a bad
    run of cable. Replaced it and had the equipment up and running before the
    test equipment could be shipped in.
