Lynx, a hand-held optical time-domain reflectometer, measures loss and locates faults in singlemode optical-fiber communications networks operating at either 1310 or 1550 nm at distances to 80 km. It can measure the location, loss and reflectance of every splice in the network and display findings on its internal LCD display. Its dynamic range is 22 dB at 1310 nm and 20 dB at 1550 nm, and loss resolution is 0.1 dB. The 2.2-lb otdr is priced from $8400.
