The BOLT-NL uses a "looped" method of measuring fiber length. This is accomplished by looping back two fibers at one end of the fiber run
show the length of the fiber cable. There is no need to measure the length of all the fibers; the length measurement can be applied to all fibers
in the cable. This method of length testing provides accurate measurements, and saves time and money.

Optical length testers save time by eliminating the need to measure fiber by the cable jacket. Fiber links may also go through multiple
cross-connects or have splices in the middle, thereby making jacket markings invalid. Optical measurement of fiber produces accurate results
without the need for jacket markings.

Optical measurement also saves time by eliminating the need to estimate the length of the fiber run with a measuring wheel. This method is
especially troublesome and inaccurate in networks that traverse walls, are in a star topology, or contain riser cables.

The BOLT-NL measures fiber links of up to 25 kilometers, and is accurate to within ±2.5 meters. Pulsing mode allows for fiber location with
fiber identifiers.
"Now, why would anybody buy this thing? Sooner or later your fiber jobs are going to require meter based length testing.  
Fiber installations are increasingly required to have fiber length measurements to comply with bid requirements. Rather
than purchase expensive certification test sets, the BOLT can be added to an installer’s existing fiber test kit for a fraction of
the cost.  You won’t find a better value on fiber optic test equipment anywhere! This item sells for only about $500.00!   Keep
in mind that the BOLT-NL IS NOT DESIGNED TO FIND DISTANCE TO A FAULT OR REFLECTION."
