EXFO Optical Wave Expert

The Optical Wave Expert AX-740C-DWOCC integrates channel power validation and reflectometry characterization on a single port. This means that technicians can automatically identify faulty channels and follow through with fault location by leveraging intelligent OTDR capabilities.

The smart toggle to the integrated OTDR mode is done automatically, without having to set any parameters.Technicians can now perform instant channel power readings through an intuitive GUI environment and seamlessly benefit from tunable OTDR capabilities. The rugged and compact MaxTester platform provides the most efficient and practical form factor for field use.

The integration of channel checker and OTDR capabilities on a single port means less unnecessary manipulation of the optical fiber and improved field efficiency. This translates into faster mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) and makes the trial and error approach–which can disable nodes–obsolete.

By combining a channel checker and OTDR capabilities on a single port, the workflow becomes highly efficient. Technicians can assess the power levels and locate faults on the spot, for improved mean time to repair (MTTR). This patent-pending feature not only saves time but also reduces unnecessary manipulations, hence avoiding damage to the connectors.
