One field-optimized, powerful test solution. Page 54 Testing Fibers After analysis, events appear in the events table. Cumulative loss from the trace span start to span end; the running total is provided at the end of each event and fiber section. Tap Modify to accept the modifications you have made or Cancel to return to the events table without saving the changes.
Press OK to close the message. You can view all of the traces, in turn, in the trace display with the navigation buttons. If you choose incrementation Consolidated data management and post-processing tool that increases reporting productivity for connector endface inspection and all types of optical-layer testing including optical link mapping iOLMOTDR, ORL, loss, PMD and chromatic dispersion.
This port can be used only to transmit—not detect that tone. Tap OK to confirm. The available choices are: EXFO warrants this equipment against defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of original shipment. For more information about markers, see Using Markers on page Tap Modify Events tab or Insert Measure tab to return to the main window.
Event location Threshold at 0. The cumulative loss is calculated within the defined fiber span only. Select ” ” if you want to keep the value exactly in the same format as defined in the start and stop values. Page Page 9 Creating and Generating Reports For future reference, you can add notes on the location of the tested fiber, type of job performed and general comments related to a trace in trace reports.
For more information on markers, see Using Markers on page If your unit is equipped with two OTDR ports, ensure that you connect the fiber to the appropriate port singlemode, singlemode live, or multimodedepending on the wavelength you intend to use. Under Fiber Characteristics, from the Wavelength list, select the desired wavelength.
You can stop light emission at any time by tapping Turn Off.
When you open a file, the active wavelength will be the same as the one of the previous file. Page 67 Testing Fibers Applying Acquisition Settings by Wavelength Applying Acquisition Settings by Wavelength By default, the modifications made ofdr the parameters distance, pulse, and time are applied to all wavelengths. Page B Description of Event Types This section describes all types of events that may manaul in the events table generated by the application. Tap the button or double-tap the graph overview window when it is displayed.
The reference measurement in memory will be closed if the option is deactivated.

Select the file used as a reference trace. Tap the Copy to Current Acquisition button. A-B LSA event loss measurements should be used on fiber sections only.
If you want to modify the parameters, enter the desired values for the current trace in the appropriate boxes.
Fully featured, entry-level, dedicated OTDR with tablet-inspired design perfect for frontline singlemode fiber installers. However, it is possible to modify the acquisition parameters independently for each wavelength. Tell us about it. Connect a fiber to the OTDR port.

Measuring events will not yield meaningful results. From the Test Configuration window, go to the Link Definition tab. You can reposition all markers directly by dragging them, or by tapping where you want to relocate them on the graph. The area between markers A and a must not include any significant variation.
The signal strength is measured for specific intervals of time mabual is used to characterize events. If you want to otxr the auto-settings activated once an acquisition is done, proceed as follows: From the main window, go to the Events tab. Real-time traces cannot be analyzed. Trace display Event table You can save the measurement after analysis. The attenuation, 4 point event loss, and maximum reflectance are also displayed.
OTDR and iOLM
You exf automatically return to the main window and a report will otrr generated. The file name is made of one or more static parts alphanumeric and one or more variable parts numeric that will be incremented or decremented, according to your selection, as follows: Position marker A on the event, and submarker a to the left of marker A as far as possible from marker Awithout including the preceding event. You can set thresholds for splice loss, connector loss, reflectance, fiber section attenuation, span loss, span length, and span ORL.
This way, the data points will be closer to each other, which will result in a greater distance resolution for the trace.
In real-time mode, the trace is refreshed at a slower rate when the graph overview window is ptdr.
