AFL Telecommunications introduces the Noyes C860 QUAD OTDR and Certification Test Kit. The new test kit includes one hand-held C840 QUAD OLTS tester and one C850 QUAD OTDR/OLTS with built-in Auto-Test functionality in a rugged transit case loaded with test and cleaning accessories. Using this kit, technicians can troubleshoot, document and perform certification tests of multimode and single-mode fiber networks, store results and create professional test reports.
The C850 is both a QUAD Certification Tester and full-featured QUAD OTDR which has a large transflective touch screen display. Featuring single-mode and multimode OTDR capabilities that can be used to perform Tier 2 testing of fiber networks, the C850 includes integrated single-mode and multimode optical light sources, an optical power meter and visual fault locator. The C840 QUAD Certification Tester includes both single-mode and multimode optical light sources, an optical power meter and a visual fault locator. It can be used alone as a traditional power meter and light source to measure fiber loss or as a visual fault locator to find fiber breaks.
Used together the C840 and C850 (aka the C860 QUAD kit) perform Tier 1 dual wavelength multimode or single-mode Auto Tests of one or two fibers in one or both directions; measure both loss and length of the fibers and compare the results to industry standards, applications and user-defined threshold values to certify the fibers.
