The Agilent OTDR Modules N391x work together with the Agilent Modular Network Tester, and are easy to snap on. The OTDR application is uploaded in seconds due to the dynamic software architecture, and allows plug and play operation. Each OTDR test engine has built-in RISC processing power for fast and accurate trace acquisition and data processing. These test engines work in parallel processing mode with other connected test engines, for example, the 1x12 Switch module. All OTDR modules can be shared between multiple users, without the need for any software changes.
With the N3911AL OTDR test engine, long haul fiber links can be tested and qualified faster than ever before, thanks to its 43dB ultra high dynamic range
technology. For high fiber count cables, where the test time is critical, this OTDR Test engine significantly reduces test times from minutes to seconds.
After the measurements have been taken the Pass/Fail Test will automatically check for attenuation and insertion and return loss. The new Bending Test will locate both macro and micro bends.
The pop-up connector solves many common problems. For easy access to the optical fiber connection, the pop-up connector is released to the up position, where a fiber can be attached without any obstacles, or the connector cleaned. This also minimizes the risk of scratches to the connector. In the down position with the dust cover closed, the connector stays protected and clean during transit.
