Corning Cable SystemsTDR Plus Multitester II offers true multitesting capability that features field-installable single-mode and multimode OTDR modules, visual fault locators, as well as optional built-in power meter and single-mode laser source. The standard unit provides internal solid-state memory for 125 traces and a floppy disk drive. An optional hard drive is also offered to allow mass data storage and speeds testing by eliminating the need to constantly exchange floppy disks in the standard drive. The product line offers a variety of multimode and single-mode modules featuring a single-mode unit with 46 dB dynamic range. Three levels of SoftView emulation software provide desktop analysis and quality documentation capability. A 10.4-in. display is easy to read and eliminates the need to jump from screen to screen to view results; it is further enhanced by an active matrix color. The strength, durability and weather resistance of the custom polymer housing protects the equipment.

The multitester features SmartTest for troubleshooting. With one button, it selects the parameters and then tests the fiber. The DualTrace function tests and displays both wavelengths on one graph. The multitasking operation system provides fast fiber analysis and data collection. The DualPulse feature allows measurement of the same fiber with two pulse widths to optimize resolution and distance measurements. Repetitive testing and documentation of each fiber is reduced using the AutoIncrement function. Only one button per fiber is needed to record both a trace and event table at each wavelength. Pop-up dialog boxes guide the user from fiber-to-fiber and provide warnings if a fault of above-threshold loss if found.

Additional features include:

  • Commercially-available rechargeable batteries;
  • AC adapter as well as a 12-V DC power adapater;
  • Location of fiber breaks and previous event for landmarking;
  • Multilingual operating and help screens;
  • Universal Connector System.
