The Wilcom FR4 is a lightweight, handheld, fast and easy-to-use Optical Time Domain Reflectometer with core functions required to measure optical fiber from one end during installation, repair and verification. This unit is ideal for field and maintenance of new or existing fiber networks.
The mini-OTDR is very fast, producing a scan within one second of pressing the scan button. It also features an easy to use Zoom function that enables the user to observe the entire link, or zoom in on defects.This unit is available in multimode or singlemode with single, dual, tri, or quad wavelengths making it ideal for LAN, Metro or Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) applications.
Each unit is capable of measuring splice loss, link attenuation and distance. The singlemode and or multimode output port(s) use high powered pulsed lasers. The QVGA monochrome display provides a powerful yet simple set of fiber parameters and control indications to view an entire fiber link or zoom in and analyze a splicing point or a defect in the fiber.The display shows fiber loss versus distance in its large central graph as well as individual and dual cursor measurements, and important instrument parameters such as Index of Refraction, pulse width, scanning speed, and a battery gauge.
The FR4 is a full-function Certifying OTDR when used with the Certification Software. View and store traces in the field, then download traces to a PC for further analysis and printing of the certifying documents.
