Yokogawa is offering a range of multi-field testers for carrying out optical loss measurements in the installation, commissioning and maintenance of fibre-optic infrastructure, including FTTx systems.

Designed to complement the company’s existing range of portable optical time-domain reflectometry (OTDR) instruments, the AQ1100 series consists of three models, each incorporating a light source and an optical power meter in a single compact package.

The three models are differentiated by the wavelength of the light source used: the AQ1100A is a single-mode 1,310/1,550nm model; the AQ1100B is a single-mode 1,310/1,550/1,625nm model; and the AQ1100D is a multimode 850/1,300nm or single-mode 1,310/1,550nm model.

All models feature a choice of built-in optical power-meter options: standard (+10 to -70dBm), high power (+27 to -50dBm) or PON (1,490/1,550nm parallel measurement).

The AQ1100A and the AQ1100C are available now and the AQ1100B is scheduled to be available in March 2010.

The AQ1100 features a large 5.7in (640 x 480) colour LCD display.

It also allows simplified end-to-end measurements to be carried out on multi-core fibre with a communication function.

A USB port is included as standard for data storage.

Options include an additional built-in visible light source, which can be used to locate the position of faults in fibres, and an Ethernet ‘ping’ test function.

The AQ1100 measures 217.5mm in width, 157mm in height and 74mm in depth and weighs approximately 1kg (including the battery).

Operation is from 100-120VAC or 200-240VAC mains at 50/60Hz or from the internal lithium-ion battery, which provides up to six hours’ operation with a charging time of five hours.
