All-in-one FTTx, CATV, LAN, Access, Metro and Long-Haul Networks OTDR

Until now, installing and maintaining optical networks required technicians to carry a variety of equipment which was not only cumbersome, but also expensive. Hearing this common complaint, Anritsu engineers have developed their new line of the ACCESS Master MT9083. The MT9083A2 test sets are designed to make your measurement experience simple and error-free with true one-button fault location, pass/fail classification, automated file saving and naming and even a macrobend detection feature for identifying installation issues. They feature multiple wavelengths and options to satisfy any network testing requirement: access or metro, FTTx or LAN...all without straining your budget.

For customers installing and maintaining metro area or core networks, the MT9082A2 offers an automated fiber construction application and multiple wavelengths including specialty applications.

Additional features include an integrated light source and power meter plus options to customize the unit including higher range power meters, visual fault locator (VFL) and connector inspection microscope to ensure complete network evaluation with a single tool.

 Fiber Visualizer

"If the OTDR were invented today, it would look like Anritsu's Fiber Visualizer"

Anritsu's 'FIBER VISUALIZER' is a new fault location function designed to simplify the entire testing process. Fiber Visualizer automatically selects the testing parameters to ensure the correct setup and provides a simple graphical summary of the fiber under test within seconds. A comprehensive PDF report can then be customized and generated, completing the testing process.

And with Anritsu's Access Master OTDR, you get the best of both worlds - BOTH Fiber Visualizer and standard OTDR trace mode are included at no extra cost.

NOTE:“Distance” above refers to the approximate fibre distance that can accurately be certified based on 0.2dB/km fibre loss @ 1550nm (0.22dB for 1625/1650 only OTDRs) & 0.1dB splices every 2km. Note too that for the same distance, test times reduce with dynamic range increase – roughly half the test time for every 2-3dB increase in dynamic range.
