M710 Compact SM and MM OTDRs

The AFL M710 OTDR from AFL combines ease of use (Touch and Test™) and functionality in a field-rugged, hand-held package. With single-mode dynamic ranges up to 40 dB and multimode dynamic ranges of 26 dB, the M710 OTDR is ideal for testing and troubleshooting LAN/WAN, metro, FTTx and long haul networks. Industry leading dead zones of less than 1.0 m enhance users' ability to locate and measure events. Testing at 1310 and 1550 nm is normally sufficient to certify point-to-point or FTTx PON fibers and allows the detection of macrobends.

The M710 supports Full Auto, Expert (manual) and Real-Time OTDR test modes, precision event analysis, multi-wavelength testing, and visual inspection per 61300-3-35 using the DFS1 Digital FiberScope allowing users the ability to view and document connector end-face images with their OTDR traces. Pass/Fail acceptance to TIA/ISO values or user-defined values can be set to alert the test operator of failing or marginal events. These capabilities simplify the user experience, reduce training time and testing errors enabling even novices to get the job done quickly and accurately.

Thousands of OTDR test results may be saved as standard .SOR files and stored internally or on the supplied USB drive. Test results are transferable via a USB cable or USB drive to a computer for viewing, printing, and analyzing with the supplied Windows® compatible software, Test Results Manager (TRM™). Saved OPM loss values for a cable in one or two directions can be displayed in a table on the M710 for evaluation and comparison. Acceptance reports generated using TRM can include Loss tables, OTDR traces with summary and event information with or without pass/fail indication and Channel Maps.

With a full set of testing tools including OTDR, OPM, VFL and end-face inspection capability the M710 is a complete solution for fiber network owners and installers.

The M700 comes complete with TRM™ Certification Reporting Software for comprehensive reports compliant to TIA/ISO guidelines.
