The new M100 OTDR is the word's first handheld, single-mode and multimode, four-wavelength Optical Time Domain Reflectometer with integrated VFL (visual fault locator). Using "PDA" technology the M100 reaches a new level of value and portability. By combining a simple user interface with the features of a mini-OTDR in a "micro" package, the M100 is ideal for premises network Tier 2 fiber link certification and fault-location measurements including: connection loss and reflectance, splice loss, and fiber loss slope (attenuation rate). The M100 is also suited for broadband service providers looking for a highly portable OTDR to document and trouble-shoot fiber links in their access and FTTx (fiber to the home/curb/office) networks.
Both the multimode and single-mode OTDR ports are equipped with tool-free, switchable adapter mounts. ST, SC, and FC adapters are provided (LC available). The VFL port is equipped with a universal adapter that accepts any standard 2.5 mm connector.
