GAOtek-ODTRHandheld Fiber Optic OTDR with Average and Real-time Test Modes

24 August 2012 - GAO Tek Inc. is offering its portable handheld fiber optic OTDR. This innovative test instrument for telecommunication networks is specially designed for fiber network construction and maintenance in FTTx, WAN and CATV systems. This handheld fiber optic OTDR, model C0250001, features a compact size, easy operation, high dynamic range and highly precise measurement.

It can be used in both single mode (1310/1550 nm) and multi mode (850/1300 nm) fiber applications. The unique hot key design makes it convenient and quick to conduct measurements and review and analyze test results. It is complete with adaptors for connection to different fiber types. It is also resistant to dust, moisture and shock, which allows it to perform well even in harsh environments.

This fiber optic OTDR provides a wavelength of 1310/1550 nm ± 20 nm for single mode fiber and 850/1300 nm ± 20 nm for multi mode fiber. The event dead zone for single mode fiber is only 3 m and for multi mode fiber is 7 m. It has a large memory capacity allowing it to save up to 300 test curves and can transfer them to a computer via RS-232 or USB port for further analysis, reporting and printing via included software. In addition, it is powered by Ni-MH rechargeable battery or AC adapter for over 3.5 hours of continuous testing operation on a single charge.

This handheld fiber optic OTDR belongs to GAO’s family of OTDRs. Two other products in this line are Multi-function Optical Time Domain Reflectometer which is used for testing in a variety of fiber optic applications including WDM, MAN, FTTH and LAN networks, and Handheld Fiber Optic OTDR which features an extra-short event dead zone of only 1.6 m, a high resolution of 0.125 m, 65 k sampling points and a convenient visible fault location (VFL) function.
