Optical Time Domain Reflectometers (OTDRs) are used to verify or certify new fiber installations as well as troubleshoot and locate faults in already deployed fibers. AFL has a FlexScan OTDRs which enables both novice and expert technicians to quickly and reliably troubleshoot optical networks or fully characterize newly installed or repaired networks. Using the innovative SmartAuto mode, multiple OTDR scans detect, locate, identify and measure network components and faults. After applying industry-standard or user-set pass/fail criteria, the characterized network is displayed using FlexScan’s intuitive, icon-based LinkMap view.
