EXFO launches new handheld OTDR line
Oct 10, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
EXFO Inc., a provider of test and service assurance solutions for wireline and wireless network operators, has launched its new tablet-inspired MaxTester 700B OTDR Series, a handheld optical time-domain reflectometer, or OTDR, line.
The MaxTester's tablet-inspired design features a large, 7-inch, outdoor-enhanced touchscreen-the largest in the industry for a handheld device, making it small enough to fit in one hand, yet large enough to provide clear, squint-free presentation of results. The MaxTester OTDR series also features an icon-based GUI in a Windows-like environment that can be easily mastered right from the outset. In addition, it's powered by a full-day, 12-hour rechargeable battery.
Produced by the world leading OTDR manufacturer, the MaxTester 700B Series is genuine EXFO OTDR inside. These instruments feature light and very compact designs at budget-friendly price points with no compromise in quality. The MaxTester series is comprised of three models to cover any frontline fiber test application, from last-mile to access and FTTH/PON. The MaxTester OTDRs replace EXFO's famous AXS-100/110 OTDR Series, in turn bringing an advanced iOLM application to the handheld market.
The iOLM OTDR-based application is powered by Link-Aware technology, which combines an intelligent and dynamic multipulse approach with multiple wavelengths-all in a unique and single link view that frees technicians from having to perform complex OTDR analysis.
"These solutions are a direct response to customer feedback, reflecting their need for compact, budget-friendly, powerful, yet intuitive testing tools inspired by tablets and smartphones," said Etienne Gagnon, Vice-President of EXFO's Test and Measurement Division. "Our new MaxTester 700B Series combines our quality-designed OTDR with a unique form factor to provide unmatched user experience and make daily test routines more simple and efficient."
