In-Service PON Troubleshooting Option
The AXS-100 Access OTDR is specifically designed for in-service PON troubleshooting. It features an optional dedicated port for testing at 1625 nm incorporating a filter that rejects all unwanted signals (1310, 1490 and 1550 nm) that could affect the OTDR measurement. The filter only lets through the 1625 nm OTDR signal, ensuring accurate OTDR measurements. In-service OTDR troubleshooting of optical fiber does not interfere with the normal operation and expected performance of the information channels. EXFO抯 AXS-100 does not interfere with the CO抯 laser transmitters, as it uses an out-of-band wavelength, as per the ITU-T L.41 recommendation (Maintenance Wavelength on Fibers Carrying Signals).
AXS-100 series OTDRs make link assessment a fast, simple task, providing unparalleled ease of use, even for technicians with little background in optical/OTDR testing. Designed for boosting OTDR testing efficiency, whether for multimode or singlemode applications, the AXS-100 software offers:
Full access to OTDR traces from major test equipment manufacturers
Based on the universal Bellcore format (.sor, Telcordia SR-4731), the software lets you access OTDR traces from various test and measurement manufacturers. You can therefore seamlessly switch to the AXS-100 series and still refer to your previously archived OTDR files.
Visual Fault Locator
Ideal for easily identifying macrobends, bad splices or bad connectors, this option delivers built-in 650 nm visual fault location on a universal connector.
GeX Power Meter
The AXS-100抯 optional power meter covers the 800 to 1650 nm range, offering a power range of ?0 to 26 dBm (GeX 2 mm); it is also calibrated according to CWDM wavelengths. The optional power meter comes with a three-year recommended calibration interval, providing for a very low cost of ownership.
Bidirectional Batch Analysis
Analyze an entire cable in just two steps. View data for all events on all fibers, and at each wavelength, on a single screen.
Live Templating for OTDR Testing
Benefit from one-step file management at any wavelength. Keep full control by adding or removing events manually, or add/remove events automatically using a reference. Get uniform, detailed cable reports.
