Pocket-sized FlexScan OTDR with SmartAuto and LinkMap

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.
