Rugged Optical Time Domain Reflectometer

26-Aug-2012 | News-Press Release

Toronto, Canada - GAO Comm ( has announced the release of its multi-function optical time domain Reflectometer which can be used for testing in a variety of fiber optic applications including WDM, MAN, FTTH and LAN networks.

This extremely durable time domain Reflectometer, model C0250002, can create fiber event reports, fiber zone reports and fault reports. It features a high dynamic range, high distance resolution and complete curve display. The ODTR also features a short event dead zone of 1.6 m, a high resolution of 0.025 m, 128 k sampling points and a convenient visible fault location (VFL) function. It is compatible with compact flash and RS232 interfaces.

This optical time domain Reflectometer provides three print modes including standard mode (full-size, multipage OTDR report), compressed mode (one page report) and curves (four six or eight curves on one page). It has USB ports for file transfer and software upgrades. It has a high level antireflection TFT screen allowing results to be clearly displayed. It provides a maximum dynamic range of 35/34 dB and a stable source output power of -8 dBm. In addition, it is powered by a built-in lithium battery with high capacity which provides for over 8 hours of continuous operation.

This multi-function optical time domain Reflectometer belongs to GAO's family of OTDR. This line also includes Handheld Fiber Optic OTDR which is an innovative test instrument for telecommunication networks and is specially designed for fiber network construction and maintenance in FTTx, WAN and CATV systems and Handheld Fiber Optic OTDR C0250003 which provides 3 wavelengths including 1310/1550 nm ± 20 nm, 1550/1625 nm ± 20 nm and 1310/1550/1490 nm ± 20 nm in single mode fiber applications for selection. This line of OTDRs is important test equipment used in fiber optic work. They are widely applied in the manufacture, construction and maintenance of optical fibers.
