Mini tester for fibre optic (OPM and VLF) and data cables

Mini tester for fibre optic (OPM and VLF) and data cables

OTDR Basic for the measurement of single-mode (SM) 1310-1550 nm fibre optic links

The OTDR Basic (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer) is a professional measuring instrument for detecting and characterizing losses and defects in fibre optic networks. The equipment emits a pulse of light with a specific wavelength, which is transmitted through the fibre to be measured. The light travels along the fibre, reflecting and attenuating, resulting in the different events. Finally, the time and intensity of the returning light is measured, calculating the type, value and location of the events of a fibre optic link.
This is an essential piece of equipment for evaluating and guaranteeing the quality of fibre optic networks.

The OTDR Basic offers multiple measurement functions in a single device, Expert and Automatic OTDR, Optical Power Meter (OPM), Stabilised Laser Source (SLS), Optical Loss Test (OLT), Visual Fault Locator (VFL) and RJ45 network cable tester.
The Automatic OTDR and the Expert OTDR perform comprehensive detection and analysis of link events. The Automatic OTDR has a pre-set and optimized parameter configuration, facilitating measurement tasks. It is thus suitable for novice installers or those with little experience with this type of professional equipment. In addition, it is especially useful when the total length of the fibre link is unknown, as the Automatic OTDR mode calculates this distance, just by entering the wavelength and the test time. The Expert OTDR, in contrast, allows manual configuration of parameters for more in-depth studies and analysis. In both modes, the data can be displayed in different ways: the fibre trace, the event table and the Link Scheme interface; different ways to simplify the reading, evaluation and analysis of the collected data.
Furthermore, the device includes OTDR Trace Software, which allows the different measurements to be studied from a computer, via a micro SD card or by connecting the OTDR with a USB cable. This makes it easier and more convenient to examine and interpret the fibre trace.

This measuring device is compact and handy, has a 5-inch touchscreen that provides great comfort in use and a battery life of up to 8 hours in continuous operation.
The OTDR Basic is supplied with Li-Ion battery (included in the device), USB to USB Type-C data cable, AC power adapter, RJ45 cable tracker and sequencer, microSD card with OTDR Trace Software and carrying case with strap.
To ensure a correct measurement it is imperative to use a launch fibre, both at the beginning and at the end of the fibre network to be measured. In this way, the losses of the first and the last connector of the link can be known.
