Anritsu Company introduces a tri-wavelength OTDR module for its Network Master  Pro MT1000A portable optical tester that provides field engineers and technicians with a comprehensive test tool to verify fiber lines in core, metro, and mobile networks. The new module supports high dynamic range at all wavelengths, including 1625 nm, which allows the MT1000A to conduct extra sensitive tests to ensure the performance of today’s high-bandwidth networks.

With the new MU100022A-022 tri-wavelength OTDR module installed, the Network Master Pro MT1000A can achieve dynamic range of 46 dB at 1310 and 1550 nm, and 44 dB at 1625 nm. Supporting the high dynamic range at the 1625 nm wavelength allows the MT1000A to achieve highly accurate macrobend detection in all single-mode fiber applications. 

This new OTDR module also features Anritsu’s Fiber Visualizer, a fault location function that simplifies the entire testing process. Fiber Visualizer automatically selects the testing parameters to ensure the proper setup and provides a simple, graphical summary of the fiber under test within seconds. Fiber Visualizer also has individualized PASS/FAIL analysis to simplify fiber optic testing. 

Ideally suited for installation and maintenance of fiber networks, all Network Master Pro MT1000A OTDR modules will benefit from new, specialized functions to make field testing more efficient. A construction OTDR mode provides an automated method of testing numerous fibers at multiple wavelengths during cable installation. A single set-up screen initiates a testing wizard, ensuring all fibers are tested and results stored using consistent file naming. Additionally, a Bi-Directional measurement function has been added for accurate and simple event loss analysis. - BROADCAST&CABLESAT Bureau
