The OP1100 OptoTest discontinuity analyzer detects signal fluctuations of 0.5 dB and a duration of 0.8μs. Up to 24 single-mode or multi-mode fibres can be monitored simultaneously and the events are recorded in a fast, high-resolution data logger. This allows experts to track the path of the dropout and work out the cause.
In addition to round-the-clock monitoring of fibre optic networks, the OP1100 is also suitable for laboratory tests. Passive and active network components can be precisely checked for irregularities caused by temperature fluctuations, vibrations, and other shocks such as signal dropouts or temporary fluctuations in the output or transit signal.
