M700 Compact Single
M700 Compact Single-mode OTDR
The Noyes M700 from AFL Telecommunications is a compact, full
featured, single-mode OTDR that includes an integrated Visual
Fault Locator (VFL), an Optical Power Meter (OPM) displaying up to
three wavelengths simultaneously, and a large transflective touch
screen display suitable for both indoor and outdoor operation.
The M700 OTDR supports Real-Time, Full-Auto, and Expert
(manual) modes, precision event analysis, dual-wavelength
testing, rich file naming, and an intuitive job set-up functionality.
In addition to OTDR event analysis, pass/fail acceptance values,
and marginal warning, specific values can be set to alert the test
operator of failing or marginal events. Using one of the Least
Squares Approximation (LSA) loss methods, events may be added
or deleted manually.
Thousands of OTDR and OPM test results can be stored internally
or on the supplied USB drive, and are transferable via a USB cable
or drive to a computer for viewing, printing and analyzing with
supplied Windows® compatible software. Saved OPM loss values
for a cable in one or two directions can be displayed in a table on
the M700 for evaluation and comparison.
•• 38 / 36 dB dynamic range @ 1310 / 1550 nm
•• Integrated Optical Power Meter (OPM) and Visual Fault Locator
(VFL, 650 nm)
•• LSA Measurements and manual events in Expert mode
•• Pass/Fail Event and Link Thresholds settings
•• OTDR results saved as industry standard (GR-196) .SOR files
•• OPM stores results and displays up to three wavelengths simultaneously
•• Large, high bright, sunlight readable, transflective touchscreen
•• Tool-free, switchable adapters (SC/FC/LC)
•• Integrated fiber launch ring holder
•• 2 USB host ports
•• USB drive and Windows® compatible software included
With short dead zones, a dynamic range of 38 dB, and greater
than 8-hour battery life during continuous testing, the M700 is
perfect for testing optical fibers in service provider metro areas.
