The FX300 mini OTDR series from VeEX Inc., targeting today’s optical fiber networks, offer some of the same features of larger traditional and more expensive OTDRs, according to the manufacturer.

The device can troubleshoot and verify optical fibers used in FTTx, metro Ethernet and next-generation mobile backhaul applications. High resolution data sampling (cm), small dead zones (less than 1m) and high dynamic range (as much as 37dB) help ensure a comprehensive assessment of FTTx, exchange/central office, intra-building and long-haul fiber deployments.

In addition, an AUTO mode simplifies operation by helping to ensure the proper measurement parameter setup, while a high-contrast color LCD screen display presents the OTDR trace-and-event table.

“Expert and novice users can quickly examine fiber characteristics and analyze any anomalies that exceed user defined thresholds, reducing fiber outage and system downtime,” VeEX points out. “In addition, the unit is also equipped with a visible laser to visually troubleshoot bad splices and connectors.” ??

Weighing less than two pounds, the FX300 is housed in a ruggedized chassis that incorporates a fan and a vent-free design that prevents dust and moisture ingress, important for the outside plant environment.
