Installation of optical fibers, however, requires clean working conditions, correct procedures and a fair amount of knowledge. Cleanliness, in particular, plays an important role in the optical fibers themselves.
According to a study by NTT Advanced Network Technology, dirty fiber end surfaces or connectors are responsible for up to 96 percent of network failures. Therefore, it is a good idea to select an easy-to-operate OTDR that can be connected via interfaces to an optical fiber microscope.

Further measurement functions, such as attenuation measurement and an optical power level analyzer, allow you to exactly determine the link attenuation and measure the output of active network components. With this OTDR, standard-compliant tier 2 measurements are as easy as creating professional measurement protocols.
Using the new matching optical fiber microscope - which can easily be connected to the OTDR via USB - fiber ends and link end surfaces can be quickly checked and assessed in accordance with IEC And all this at just the touch of a button. The fiber is ideally protected - in the PRO variants, the coiling up takes place automatically.
