The OFM130 is a unique, fixed wavelength, high resolution OTDR designed to operate in the long wavelength region (1200 nm to 1635 nm) in Real-Time with unprecedented sensitivity and resolution. When operated in the Fresnel mode, return loss as low as 80 dB can be measured from individual concatenated components, separated by as little as 50 cm. Rayleigh-mode operation allows for splice-loss measurements (even between unlike fibers) in confined lengths such as experienced in erbium amplifiers. The OFM130 Real-Time operational capability makes it unmatched for fault-finding applications. The high resolution also makes the OFM130 suitable for beat-length measurements in PM fiber in addition to more normal length and delay-line applications.
