AFL Releases FlexScan OTDR with LinkMap and SmartAuto

  • AFL
LOWELL, MA and SPARTANBURG, SC — AFL, a provider of products and services to the broadband market, introduces FlexScan, the new pocket-sized, hand-held OTDR that provides fast, accurate fiber optic network characterization and fault location. Combining SmartAuto data acquisition with event analysis and intuitive LinkMap display, FlexScan enables technicians to quickly and easily troubleshoot faulty optical networks, or completely characterize newly installed networks.

SmartAuto Simplifies Test Setup, LinkMap Clarifies OTDR Results
“FlexScan‘s SmartAuto simplifies test setup, while LinkMap clarifies OTDR results, making it easy for any technician to perform testing,” explains Michael Scholten, senior product marketing manager at AFL. “As the number of fiber-based networks continues to grow, FlexScan enables carriers and contract installers to equip each technician with an all-in-one fiber test solution that literally fits in their pocket.”

SmartAuto Selects Appropriate OTDR Settings
FlexScan’s SmartAuto technology automatically selects the most appropriate OTDR settings to detect, locate, identify and measure network start, end, connectors, splices and macro-bends. LinkMap technology applies pass/fail limits to detected events, displays the network using color-coded icons to highlight faults and recommends corrective action to resolve faults.

Available in either single or dual-wavelength OTDR configurations, FlexScan includes integrated VFL, plus optional loss test set (source and power meter), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communications.

Designed for outside plant technicians, FlexScan is rugged yet lightweight, provides a large, backlit indoor/outdoor color display and operates up to 12 hours from its rechargeable battery. Results may be stored internally or to a USB memory stick. Internally stored results are easily uploaded via USB, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi for archiving or report generation using the included TRM 2.0 Test Results Manager software.
