Pocket-sized OTDR with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
September 2016, Industrial Wireless


Optical Time Domain Reflectometers (OTDRs) are used to verify or certify new fibre installations as well as troubleshoot and locate faults in already deployed fibre networks. AFL’s newly launched FlexScan OTDRs enable both novice and expert technicians to troubleshoot optical networks or fully characterise newly installed or repaired installations. 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 characterised network is displayed using FlexScan’s intuitive, icon-based LinkMap view.

FlexScan automates test setup, shortens test time and simplifies results interpretation, improving efficiency and reducing the cost of test. Acquired results may be stored internally or externally. Internally stored results are easily accessed via USB, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

With optional connector inspection, integrated source, power meter and VFL, FlexScan offers an all-in one solution, ensuring technicians have everything they need to locate and resolve optical network issues. Specifically designed for field use, FlexScan is robust, rugged, lightweight, powerful and flexible.

FlexScan is available in two models:

•FS200-50: 1550 nm only version for cost-effective network troubleshooting, including detection of high-losses due to macro-bends.

•FS200-100: 1310/1550 version for more complete installation verification, as well as troubleshooting. By testing at both wavelengths, FlexScan can differentiate poor splices from macro-bends, as well as qualify the network for operation in both 1310 and 1550 nm windows.

Both models include an integrated VFL and are available with optional integrated source, power meter and Bluetooth/Wi-Fi wireless communications. FlexScan test sets are available in three standard kit configurations.
