FasTest Source:
ORL Meter

  • FasTesTTM: three-wavelength measurement of optical loss, ORL and fiber length in 10 seconds
  • All-in-one portable test solution: up to eight instruments combined in a single, eye-catching handheld package
  • FTTx-ready: allows for the testing of passive optical networks (PONs) at 1310 nm, 1490 nm and 1550 nm, the three wavelengths recommended by the ITU-T (G.983.3) for PONs

EXFO’s Next-Generation MaxTester:
Much More Features, Much Bigger Performance

The new FOT-930 MaxTester Multifunction Loss Tester is designed to help network service providers address CAPEX and OPEX issues, enable installers to easily adapt to all network types, and provide CATV operators with a single-unit solution to their backreflection, fiber-length, high-power and bidirectional loss measurement needs. Combined with its video fiber inspection probe, this unit also enables the easy detection of dirty or damaged connectors, providing a clear view of connectors and fiber ends on the FOT-930’s high-resolution display.

  • High-resolution color display
  • Complete data management and report generation
  • Nine hours power autonomy provided by field-swappable rechargeable batteries


FTTx-Ready: Optimized for Testing Passive Optical Net orks (PONs)

FTTx-Mode Operation
This mode lets you configure your FOT-930 MaxTester to suit your FTTx wavelengths and test-unit locations, as well as choose your preferred data presentation options for on-screen display or report generation. Key benefits include:

  • Display of test data according to FTTx terminology
  • Similar test-data presentation, regardless of the location of master and remote units

Integrated Data Storage Management
This feature enables the FasTesT initiator to save results on a remote unit—even when multiple remote units are used. Key benefits include:

  • The possibility to store test data in a single unit
  • Easier data post-processing and transfer from the FTB-3930 module (see figure below)

Point-to-Multipoint Testing with Multiple Referencing
Implemented in the FTB-3930 MultiTest Module, multiple referencing lets you coordinate the FTB-3930 with up to 10 remote FOT-930 MaxTester units. Key benefits include:

  • First-class efficiency, as several technicians can simultaneously install and test distribution fibers

A Single Tool for All Backreflection, Fiber-Length and Loss Measurement Needs

Because learning how to operate only one instrument is easier and much faster, test specialists should choose an all-in-one tool that enables them to perform tasks such as installing long-haul high-speed networks, testing 1310/1490/1550 nm transmission in FTTH networks, performing multimode testing in enterprise networks, etc.—a do-it-all solution such as the FOT-930 MaxTester.

Key Advantages for All Network Types

  • Fast, three-wavelength loss and ORL testing
  • User-configurable pass/fail thresholds for error-free testing
  • The only unit designed for testing both multimode and singlemode fiber
  • Video fiber inspection probe, for easy viewing of connectors and fiber ends on the FOT-930’s high-resolution display
  • GeX detector, for high-power measurement up to +26 dBm
  • Complete report generation capabilities
  • Talk set and VFL options
  • Ease of use, for faster testing, reduced training, minimum error potential, etc.

Key Features

  • Two FasTesT ports: a three-wavelength singlemode port, including either 1625 or 1490 nm, and a two-wavelength multimode port, for a total of up to five wavelengths
  • Automatic measurement of ORL and fiber length during FasTesT
  • Visual loss and ORL pass/fail analysis
  • Large 320 x 240 color screen
  • Storage of over 1000 complete test reports, with automated report generation
  • Options: high-power detector, talk set, visual fault locator (VFL) and video fiber inspection probe
  • No offset nulling required

Standard Data Reporting Features

The FOT-930’s software automatically sets up test data in an easy-to-read, well-organized table. Testing is simplified thanks to the highly intuitive user interface and integrated test functions, taking software user-friendliness to the next level.

  • Select predefined test parameters and pass/fail thresholds
  • Customize user settings and cable identification parameters
  • Add operator comments
  • Generate reports for ORL, bidirectional loss (three wavelengths) and fiber length measurement

Report Generation
Growing fiber deployment in NSP and CATV networks sometimes leads installation companies to hire subcontractors. These subcontractors must produce proper test documentation to corroborate the tests were performed as specified.

EXFO’s FOT-930 MaxTester easily and efficiently provides complete, high-quality test documentation. Its data logging and management features help users quickly access and download test results to any PC through the RS-232 port for in-depth analysis and first-class report generation.

Online Help Menu and Multilingual Interface, for Enhanced User-Friendlines

The FOT-930 MaxTester features a comprehensive, easy-to-use on-line help menu providing all the necessary information required for highly efficient instrument operation—an advantage offered by no other test unit on the market. This feature contributes to the FOT-930’s unequaled user-friendliness.

The FOT-930’s interface is available in seven languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Czech and Russian. This allows users to choose their preferred language, further reduce training and testing time.
