Optical Time Domain Reflectometer

This page of equipments section of Test and Measurement World covers Yokogawa Optical Time Domain Reflectometer.It mentions features of AQ7280 Optical Time Domain Reflectometer from Yokogawa. Other vendors of Optical Time Domain Reflectometer are also mentioned.

It is a optical equivalent of electronic time domain reflectometer. It injects the short laser pulse into the fiber cable and analyzes reflected or scattered version of the light from the fiber. In this way, Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) will determine optical losses as well as determine location of breaks in the optical fiber cable.

Following are the silent features of OTDR:
• It runs on very efficient OS to support simultaneous multiple functions.
• It supports dual operational modes viz. using buttons and using touch screen.
• It is ready for operation within few seconds.
• OTDR can be remotely controlled using wireless. File data transfer can also be done wirelessly.
• It is used for measurements of distance, loss, return loss etc.
