SPARTANBURG, S.C., Aug. 20, 2012 — AFL has announced enhancements to its NOYES OFL280 FlexTester optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) that improve overall performance and fiber event analysis, save optical power meter results for integration into the TRM (Test Results Manager) reporting application and expand language support.

The company’s recently updated TRM software is now compatible with OFL280 .SOR trace files and .ATD power meter files. It enables OFL280 OTDR event analysis and end-to-end loss test results to be combined into a single comprehensive report. Existing owners may download new firmware by visiting: http://bit.ly/Mj4NoA.

The OFL280 is a key optical network installation and maintenance solution for many network operators. The OFL280 FlexTester family of handheld, rugged OTDRs includes four models tailored for different point-to-point and FTTx passive optical network installation and/or troubleshooting applications. All models deliver 0.8-m event and 3.5-m attenuation dead zones and include an integrated optical light source (OLS), an optical power meter (OPM) and a visual fault locator. The OLS and OPM support the proprietary Wave ID, which enables simultaneous power and loss measurements at multiple wavelengths, eliminating setup errors and reducing loss test time by up to 80%.

OFL280s provide more than 12 h of continuous operation without battery recharge or replacement.
