The new Greenlee series 920XC OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer) hand-helds by Tempo are fully equipped measuring devices for the inspection of optical fibers and optical fiber systems and for the localization of defects in fiber paths.
With the help of an automatic testing function measurements can be performed quickly and easily without much previous knowledge. The measuring device automatically selects the optimal settings. The test fibers are scanned and the measurement results such as, for example, total fiber length, attenuation events and their positions inside the fiber, or the attenuation between two points are clearly arranged in the large, easy-to-read color display.
The user can choose between having the test results displayed in a table or as a graphical representation, whichever option provides a more concise arrangement of all test results. With a zoom function certain areas in the graphic can be displayed in a detailed manner for an exact readout.
An enormous advantage is the ease with which you can handle the menu controls when entering the basic settings and the required data in order to conduct measurements. The 920XC series OTDRs are an essential and ideal tool for all telecommunications service providers and fiber installers; in fact, they belong in every service workbox.
