Small but Capable
Despite its small size, the MT9090A does not compromise performance or features. With a high resolution indoor/outdoor display, excellent optical performance, innovative features and expandable modular design, the MT9090A Network Master is clearly in a different class than most other "handheld OTDRs".
An OTDR with <1 m Dead Zone for Short Fibre Analysis
With less than 1 m dead zones, the MT9090A is perfect for evaluating central office, FTTx and intra building cables.
Integrated Launch Fibre
To further simplify testing, the MU909011A has 10 m (30 ft) of fibre built-in so initial fibre connections can be verified without the need for additional patchcords or launch fibres.
Full Trace View
The user can also select to view the full trace for additional information or to initiate real time testing.
Event Table with User Defined Thresholds
PASS/FAIL thresholds for key acceptance criteria such as splice loss, reflectance and total span loss can be set in the MT9090A allowing technicians to easily assess a fibre's condition. Failing values are clearly highlighted in the event table alerting technicians of potential problems.
The MT9090A features a modular design allowing modules to be easily changed in the field. Users can interchange different wavelength fault locator modules or perform other optical network testing such as optical channel analysis with the available CWDM channel analyzer module. Operation is quite similar between modules so the user is immediately familiar with operation.
A Unique Approach to In-Service Maintenance
Since multiple users share the common feed fibre, FTTx maintenance becomes difficult when only one or two users are down. Traditionally, 1625 nm or 1650 nm wavelengths were used to test active fibres however these wavelengths typically need costly WDM couplers and filters in the network. As a unique approach to this, Anritsu also offers a 780 nm Fault Locator module that can be used to troubleshoot in-service FTTx networks without costly filters and without disruption to other customers. This offers a clear advantage over PON specific power meters that only verify signal presence but still rely on an additional OTDR or fault locator to locate the cause. With the MT9090A, one box does it all!
Video Inspection Probe Support
When equipped with the optional connector video inspection probe (VIP), the MU909011A becomes a powerful tool for evaluating connector cleanliness and quality. Connector end faces can be safely viewed and images stored to document all aspects of your network.
