AFL Telecommunications has introduced three new Noyes M700 models, including a Long-Range Quad OTDR being launched at the BICSI Winter Conference in Orlando this week. The three new models possess increased singlemode dynamic range and improved dead zones, the company says.
The three models include:
* Dual Wavelength Singlemode OTDR: 1310/1550-nm 40/38 dB DR
* Triple Wavelength Singlemode OTDR: 1310/1550/1625-nm 40/38/38 dB DR
* Quad Wavelength OTDR: Multimode 850/1300-nm 24/24 dB and singlemode 39/37 dB DR
The singlemode M700 models are designed to test optical fibers in metro, FTTx, and long-haul networks. The long range Quad model is suited for DOT, campus, and military networks that typically have both singlemode and multimode fiber within the campus and long-distance point to point fibers, according to AFL Telecommunications.
All three M700 OTDR models come with an integrated visual fault locator (VFL) and optical power meter (OPM). With a large transflective touch screen suitable for both indoor and outdoor operation, the compact OTDR offers full-auto, expert (manual and auto once) and real-time test modes, as well as precision event analysis, multi-wavelength testing, rich file naming, and intuitive job set-up functionality, AFL Telecommunications asserts. The file naming and multi-test capability (OPM and OTDR) of the M700 models combined with the analysis and reporting capabilities of the included PC software make this product easy and fast to use from set-up through report submittals, the company adds.
Thousands of OTDR and OPM test results can be stored internally or on the supplied USB drive and are transferable to a computer for viewing, printing, and analyzing with supplied Windows compatible software, says AFL Telecommunications. The OPM will display up to three wavelengths simultaneously. Saved OPM loss values for a cable in one or two directions can be displayed in a table on the M700 for evaluation and comparison.
All M700 models include Windows compatible PC Trace Analysis/Test Results Management software. The new Noyes M700 models are now available.
