Dynatel 965AMS Advanced Modular System

The Dynatel 965AMS system contains every feature of our previous 965 model plus a larger, brighter display that features 3MTM VikuitiTM Display Enhancement technology, a user-friendly icon-based interface and rugged field-swappable modules.* These external modules can be shared between technicians and allow transmission testing of a variety of OSP technologies.

This microcomputer-controlled flexible test set family provides full-featured testing for the triple play—voice, video and data circuits. Because it’s a Dynatel 965 series tester, the AMS model is easy to use, requiring minimal training for testing professionals. And because it emphasizes fault diagnosis and fault location, customer problems can be solved quickly.
