OTDR measurements

OTDR measurements added to Yokogawa multi field tester family

The latest instrument to be added to the Yokogawa family of multi field testers is the AQ1200 OTDR (optical time-domain reflectometer).

Designed to aid the installation, commissioning and maintenance of fibre-optic infrastructure including FTTx, the new instrument offers a comprehensive range of optical measurement capabilities in a compact handheld package measuring only 216 x 157 x 74 mm and weighing only 1 kg.

In addition to OTDR analysis functions, test features include a fault locator for automatically finding faulty events, plus an optional visual fault locator using a visible light source. A further option allows optical loss testing in conjunction with a built-in stabilised light source and optical power meter with a range of +10 to -70 dBm or +27 to -50 dBm.

The AQ1200 incorporates an easy-to-read 5.7-inch colour LCD display, and offers built-in multiple language support. It operates at wavelengths of 1310 and 1550 nm over distances ranging from 500 m to 200 km and with pulse widths ranging from 3 ns to 10 µs.

Other facilities include a simple connection test option using the Ethernet PING test, support for an external video fibre inspection probe, and multi-core fibre test capability.

This multi field tester series also includes the AQ1100 MFT-OLTS optical loss tester.
