Afl M200 300x180AFL is releasing the NOYES M200 OTDR with a new user interface (UI), version 2.0, with features the company says simplify use and reduce training time and testing errors.

It also has an integrated visual fault locator (VFL), a toggle function for storage of trace results from both ends of a fiber/cable, and event measurements with various manual LSA methods available in Expert mode.

New features include:



  • Pass/Fail thresholds compliant with TIA/ISO/user-defined values to alert test operators of failing or marginal events at the time of test


  • Enhanced reporting capability with Test Results Manager (TRM) software includes OTDR traces, end face images from the company's DFS1 Digital FiberScope, and logos of both the installer and end customer


  • A New Job creation editor with job/file naming


  • Improved file management and results review via Results Manager


  • General settings improvements including Date/Time/Number format options and an Auto Off feature.




The new UI supports visual inspection per IEC 61300-3-35 using the DFS1 to view and document connector end-face images with OTDR traces. Test results can be stored internally or on the supplied USB drive and are transferable to a PC for viewing, printing and analyzing with TRM software.
