Test equipment: AFL is launching TruEvent Technology, advanced event analysis software used in AFL’s M-series OTDRs that provides a new level of accuracy and reliability in event analysis. This new technology allows the user to confidently determine where losses meet or exceed specifications from data centers to long haul applications.

“The introduction of TruEvent Technology provides industry-leading event analysis that makes AFL’s newest models the most accurate OTDRs in the market,” stated Lee Kellett, director of product marketing for AFL’s test and inspection division. “Our research focused on developing software that reported all events accurately, while not reporting false events. More accuracy translates into faster, lower cost troubleshooting and data you can count on.”

Used to test new fiber installations and locate faults in deployed fiber optic networks, AFL’s OTDRs are available for both multimode and single-mode networks. OTDRs scan fiber optic networks from one end of the fiber, displaying a trace and reporting pass/fail results for detected events such as splices, connectors and micro- or macro-bends. Fiber length is reported along with location and loss of detected events.

Several AFL OTDRs are available with an integrated visual fault locator (VFL), optical light source (OLS), and/or optical power meter (OPM). OTDR results can be saved and uploaded to a PC for further analysis and/or archiving.

Additional OTDRs with TruEvent Technology will be available by mid-year. AFL provides industry-leading products and services to the electric utility, broadband, communications, enterprise and OEM markets as well as the emerging markets of oil and gas, mining, nuclear, avionics, renewables and transportation. The company’s diverse product portfolio includes fiber optic cable, transmission and substation accessories, outside plant equipment, connectors, fusion splicers, test equipment and training. AFL’s service portfolio includes market-leading positions with the foremost communications companies supporting inside plant central office, EF&I, outside plant, enterprise and wireless areas.

Founded in 1984, AFL is proud to offer engineering expertise, exceptional products and reliable service that help our customers improve their critical and electrical infrastructure. AFL has operations in the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Europe, Asia and the South Pacific. The company is headquartered in Spartanburg, SC and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fujikura Ltd. of Japan.
