- High Dynamic Range
- In Service Testing
- Bluetooth Interface
- Tablet-PC Controlled
DescriptionThe LF-120 is a tool for short fiber fault location applications. It helps troubleshooting FTTx drop cables and other similar cable installations. Approval of the original assembly after installation, monitoring of possible degradation for preventive maintenance purposes and troubleshooting in case of a fault in the system are typical applications.
The extremely short deadzones ensure that events are found and localized, which are often missed by a standard OTDR, such as fiber breaks and bend-losses, even after a large reflection.
Working at a wavelength of 670 nm with special launch conditions makes in-service testing of FTTx installations possible without interferences. The LF-120 is remotely controlled by a Windows 10 tablet PC via a Bluetooth connection.
