Product Information

DORC’s ZX-1 nano is designed specifically to inspect fiberoptic connectors for contamination or surface scratches on the ferrule or fiber endface. The hand-held (HH) unit has a built-in LCD monitor to provide inherently eye-safe viewing of potentially “live” connectors. Conventional direct viewing microscopes usually contain laser filters to absorb or reflect the invisible laser radiation. However, it is impossible for the operator to know if such precautions are in place and providing effective protection.

The ZX-1 nano is an “inspection only” system that comes in either a hand-held (5″ built-in LCD monitor) or bench-top (external 12″ monitor) configuration. Both models offer high magnification and incorporate high-resolution optics, providing extremely bright and sharp images of both PC and (optionally) APC fiberoptic connectors. The ZX-1 nano HH runs continuously for approximately 5 hours on a single charge. The included universal voltage AC adapter permits charging anywhere in the world.

Datacom Textron MM 850 Fiber Optic Test

FiberMeter is the most complete system for field testing of premise-wiring multimode and singlemode fiber.

Datacom Textron FiberMeter Fiber-Meter MM Fiber Loss Test Set Models On Sale Warranty Calibration Backed by The Best Service and Lowest Prices in the Industry.

FiberMeter is the most complete system for field testing of premise-wiring multimode and singlemode fiber. For testing multimode fiber, FiberMeter is the first portable test system to provide automated measurement of optical loss and cable length, Pass/Fail certification against industry standards, detailed certification reports, and the convenience of a built-in talk set. FiberMeter will even test singlemode fiber, providing two separate precision power meters for measuring singlemode optical power and loss.

Multimode Fiber Test Features:
Tests two multimode fibers with one setup.
Automatic bi-directional loss measurements at 850 and 1300 nm
Automated loss budget calculation
Loss margin analysis
Cable length
Propagation delay
Pass/fail certification against cabling standards and network requirements.
Stores up to 2000 link reports.
Uploads test reports to PC for archiving and printing.
Built-in talk set.

Time Savings
FiberMeter will significantly reduce the time you spend setting up and performing tests and quickly pays for itself with productivity improvements. With FiberMeter, pairs of multimode fiber cable are simultaneously measured for bi-directional loss at both 850 and 1300 nm wavelengths with one test setup. Use of FiberMeter for multimode fiber certification can cut testing time up to 80 percent or more compared to manual loss measuring methods. For solo-operator testing, FiberMeter saves additional time spent in
test setup, for tests can be initiated from either end of the fiber link using either FiberMeter handset.

Fiber Certification Based On Industry Standards
With FiberMeter, certification of multimode fiberoptic links is easier
than ever and eliminates the need for interpretation of raw test results. Simply choose from a library of fiber cabling standards, such as TIA 568A or ISO 11801, or
network standards such as 10BASE-FL or Gigabit Ethernet 1000BASE-SX. FiberMeter calculates an optical loss budget (loss Pass/Fail limits) based upon the
specified number of connections and splices in the optical link, plus the measured length.
Autotests on a pair of multimode fibers can be completed in less than 6 seconds. Test results include: Pass/Fail indication, loss measurements at 850 nm and
1300 nm, margin between the measured loss and the established loss budget, cable length, and propagation delay. Up to 1000 Autotest reports may be stored in
each handset (2000 total) along with the test date, selectable company/customer name, and link identification number. Special auto-incrementing Link ID naming
mode facilitates the naming of sequential tests.

Certification Reports
Stored Autotest certification reports can be output to a serial printer or uploaded to a PC using the included Report Manager Software (RMS). RMS, a Windows 95/NT 4.0 based utility program provides a simple, intuitive interface for summarizing, sorting and printing test reports.

Test and Talk With One Instrument
LinkTalkTM provides voice communications over the multimode fiber under test. The
integrated talk set keeps you talking even in buildings that prevent use of 2-way radios.
LinkTalk includes built-in microphones, individual earphones, volume controls, and a Call Alert signal. Standard miniature audio jacks on the FiberMeter handsets accept any
conventional headset.

Tests Singlemode Fiber (Available December 1999)
Each FiberMeter handset can be used as a precision optical power meter for measuring loss on singlemode fiber at both 1310 nm and 1550 nm wavelengths using a separate laser source (available seperately). Reference levels at both wavelengths may be saved with a push of a button. Test results may be saved for later printing or uploading to a PC using Report Manager Software.

The Datacom Textron Dual Laser Source is a palm-sized instrument supporting the 1310nm and 1550nm transmission windows. This compact, rugged, and splash-resistant laser source is used for installing, maintaining, and conductiong research on singlemode SONET/SDH, cable TV, ATM, and other types of fiber optic links.

All Datacom Textron laser sourecs feature a high-performance universal connector interface. The universal connector interfae is complemented by a full range iof screw-on/screw-off adapters supporting a number of industry-standard PC (physical contact) connectors, such as ST, SC, and FC types. The universal connector interface is also easy to clean, ensuring accurate and consistant measurements.

In addition to the overall advantages of the univesal connector interface, the output signal performance of the Datacom Textron laser source is also characterized by two useful features:

1) The absolute output power level is calibrated, emabling efficient transmission-loss measurements. The user is thus assured that the output power level is consistant everytime the unit is turned on. Furthermore, the reproducibility of the output power level is matched by the multi-wavelength reference storage capabilities of the Datacom Textron optical power meter.

2) The user may select either continuous wave or modulated (pulsed) output. The modulated output may be selected to match the frequency signatures (270Hz/1kHz/2kHz) required by fiber identifiers and other types of optical signal tracers via a switch inside the battery compartment.

The Datacom Textron laser source is powered by two AA-size 1.5 volt alkaline batteries providing at least 36 hours of operation. A combined wavelength and battery status LED indicator blinks when the batteries are low. These laser sources also incorporate an auto-shutoff feature that powers down the instrument if the buttons on the front panel is not depressed for 15 minutes. This auto-shutoff feature may be disables via the front panel controls.
