FLEXBOX: Distance Analyzer with microOTDR Transceiver

The Distance Analyzer offers a graphical representation to display the total length of your optical fiber including all sub segments without additional equipment besides our microOTDR SFP Transceiver.

  • Detect and locate faulty connections during installation and maintenance
  • Measure total fiber length, to determine which transceiver budget is necessary
  • One side measurement: Only one side oft he link is needed to measure the link length
  • Single-direction distance analysis and segment identification

Measuring the total length of a 40118 meter long optical fiber

otdr_2_snapshot

Comparing a snapshot of the previous 40118 meter long segment with the current setup.

A comprehensible graph visualizes the fiber’s segments and their lengths in real time. You can create a snapshot of this graph, in case you do a documentation for your installation. The table below the graph will provide information about the specific measurements with reflection, distinct distance and the according segment length.

The Distance Analyzer can handle single mode fibers of dimensions between several meters and 40km. The resulting precision for measurements of fiber lengths > 500m is about 10m and of lengths > 5000m around 150m.
