APRIL 14, 2009 -- AFL Telecommunications (search Lightwave for AFL Telecommunications) is launching the Noyes C-Series QUAD test offering, including a compact QUAD OTDR and QUAD Certification Test Kit with the capability to mix and match to suit network testing needs.

The C850 QUAD OTDR is a full-featured QUAD OTDR with integrated singlemode and multimode optical light sources, optical power meter, visual fault locator, and a large transflective touch-screen display suitable for indoor and outdoor operation. The OTDR offers built-in certification auto test functionality, which can be used with another C850 or the C840 QUAD Certifications tester.

The C840 QUAD Certification Tester includes both singlemode and multimode optical light sources, an optical power meter and visual fault locator. The unit is designed to perform auto test certification in pairs such as in the C880 and C860 kits; it ca also be used alone as a traditional power meter or light source to measure fiber loss or as a visual fault locator to find fiber breaks.

The C880 QUAD Certification Test Kit combines two C840 certification testers designed for Tier 1 testing and troubleshooting both multimode and singlemode fiber links.

Each tester includes a singlemode and multimode optical light source, an optical power meter, and an integrated visual light source, which can be used independently or two C840s can be combined to perform two fiber certification auto tests.

For the Tier 1 and Tier 2 test applications, AFL created the C860 QUAD OTDR and Certification Test Kit, which includes a C840 and a C850. This kit allows the user to perform Tier 1 dual-wavelength multimode or singlemode certification auto tests of two fibers in both directions, measure both loss and length of the fibers, and compare the results to industry standards, applications, and user-defined threshold values to certify the fibers. With singlemode and multimode capabilities, the C860 supports simultaneous dual- or single-wavelength OTDR testing, fault finding, and auto test certification. The C860 kit includes cleaning and test accessories for testing premises networks.
