VeEX unveils RXT-4113+ combination DWDM and CWDM OTDR

April 6, 2023
The module provides expanded capabilities for contractors and technicians who need to perform fiber cable certification in various network test environments, according to the company.

VeEX Inc. now offers the RXT-4113+, a combination DWDM + Legacy (CWDM) optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) module for the company’s RXT-1200 platform. The module provides expanded capabilities for contractors and technicians who need to perform fiber cable certification in various network test environments, according to the company.

The RXT-4113+ module is the first of its kind, VeEX asserts. It covers 1310/1550 nm for grey fiber testing and 1625 nm for in-service point-to-point and basic PON fiber testing. Key features, according to VeEX, include:

  • application-specific LinkMap
  • what the company asserts is best-in-class 3-cm resolution
  • high-dynamic range DWDM at 41 dB and 1310/1550//1625F at 40/38//39 dB
  • short attenuation deadzone of < 4 m
  • optional OLS, OPM, VFL, and FiberScope test options.

“The new combo RXT-4113+ DWDM + Legacy OTDR makes it easy for splicers and contractors to quickly move between jobs knowing they have the most versatile OTDR in their toolbox. They can address any fiber test challenge that arises without needing to run back to grab another module or OTDR," said Nancy Lee, director of product marketing, fiber optics solutions at VeEX. “By uploading test results to each unique Collection folder in their free VeEX Fiberizer Cloud account, they can easily share results with their team as well as customers - to wrap up and expedite payment for a job well done."
