Scratches and stains on optical-fiber ferrule end faces can have a negative impact on transmission quality. Connecting the G0306B to the Network Master MT1000A/MT1100A series, ACCESS Master MT9083x2 series, Network Master MT9090A (μOTDR module) series or a Windows® PC displays provides a safe way to view, analyze and document connector end face condition and quality. This function is useful for determining whether a ferrule end face is clean, or whether connector replacement is required due to the presence of scratches.
This all-in-one compact handheld tester supports optical pulse tests, optical power/loss measurements, and fiber end-face inspections.
It has a wide variety of applications, ranging from installation and maintenance (I&M) of trunk fibers (Core, Metro, Mobile Fronthaul, Mobile Backhaul) to troubleshooting Access networks, such as breaks in drop cables.
The new, palm-size MT9090A modular platform from Anritsu finally addresses all of these needs. Users can interchange different modules to configure the MT9090A as an optical fault locator, general purpose OTDR, CWDM optical channel analyzer or 10/100/1000MB Ethernet tester. Operation is quite similar between modules so the user is immediately familiar with operation.
