Optical tester module and software applies to metro networks

A tri-wavelength optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) module for the Network Master Pro MT 1000A portable optical tester.

The module supports high dynamic range at all wavelengths, including 1625nm, allowing the optical tester to conduct sensitive tests to ensure the performance of high-bandwidth networks.

With the MU100022A-022 tri-wavelength OTDR module installed, the Network Master Pro MT1000A can achieve dynamic range of 46dB at 1,310 and 1,550nm, and 44dB at 1625nm, says Anritsu. Supporting the high dynamic range at the 1625 nm wavelength allows the instrument to achieve highly accurate macrobend detection in all single-mode fibre applications.

This module also features the company’s Fiber Visualizer, a fault location function, which automatically selects the testing parameters to ensure the proper set-up and provides a simple, graphical summary of the fibre under test within seconds. There is individual pass/fail analysis to simplify fibre optic testing.

A construction OTDR mode provides an automated method of testing numerous fibres at multiple wavelengths during cable installation. A single set-up screen initiates a testing wizard, ensuring all fibres are tested and results stored using consistent file naming. Additionally, a bi-directional measurement function has been added for accurate and simple event loss analysis.
