Description

FLX380 / OFL280 FlexTester Complete Kits

FlexTester Complete kits provide all the test and inspection equipment needed by network technicians to verify, troubleshoot, and maintain both point-to-point and FTTx passive optical networks (PONs):

  • Installation Verification:  Inspect and clean optical connectors.  Locate and measure splices, splitters, and connectors.  Verify end-to-end length, insertion loss and optical return loss.
  • Maintenance Troubleshooting:  Identify in-service or out-of-service fibers.  Locate the source of excess loss or reflections in optical networks.  Inspect and clean contaminated or damaged connectors.  Visually locate breaks or macrobends.
  • Patented ServiceSafe PON Testing (US patent 8,411,259):  Complete in- or out-of-service OTDR tests and PON power measurements from a single port!  Automatically detect and measure PON power levels.  Prevent service-disrupting 1310/1550 nm OTDR test on in-service PON, while allowing out-of-band 1625 or 1650 nm live PON OTDR test.
  • Faster Loss Testing with Fewer Errors:  The FlexTester's Wave ID power meter synchronizes to wavelength(s) sent by a Wave ID source, eliminating wavelength setup errors and reducing optical loss test time by up to 80%!

Conveniently organized in a rugged, waterproof, hard-shell carry case, FlexTester Complete kits include the following network verification and troubleshooting tools:

  • User-selected FLX380 FlexTester3 or OFL280 FlexTester – Handheld multi-wavelength OTDR with optional patented ServiceSafe™ live PON OTDR, integrated Wave ID optical light source, power meter, and Visual Fault Locator (VFL), plus 150 m launch cable.
  • FOCIS PRO Fiber Optic Connector Inspection System – Video connector inspection with IEC pass/fail analysis, AFL’s unique image-pairing (patent-pending) and UPC or APC adapters, plus 1.25 and 2.5 mm One-click cleaners.
  • OFI-200D Optical Fiber Identifier – Clamps onto buffered or jacketed fibers to non-intrusively determine if the fiber is carrying live traffic or a 2 kHz test tone (generated by FlexTester’s optical source)
  • TRM® 2.0 Basic Test Results Manager – Windows compatible software to analyze uploaded results and prepare customized, professional reports including OTDR measurements, power meter results and connector inspection images.
FlexTesters support installation and maintenance testing for both FTTx PON and point-to-point optical networks at two or three wavelengths, depending on the model selected.  Select the most appropriate FlexTester Complete based on application, wavelength and dynamic range requirements.

FlexTester Complete kits provide both a more convenient and lower cost solution when equipping network installation and maintenance crews.  By ensuring network technicians have the tools they need when and where they need them, FlexTester Complete kits shorten network test time and further reduce cost.
