Présentation

The Viavi Compact Photonic Tools offer a new portfolio of point solutions for fiber optic test applications. The cOTRL-A1 provides a compact, intuitive Optical Return Loss Meter designed to enable applications ranging from simple continuity verification and return loss testing to integration into process automation equipment designed for robotic alignment.

Available in two or three laser versions with the option to select from four key wavelengths: 1310, 1490, 1550, and 1625 nm. The intregrated multiplexer and single optical output found in the cORL-A1 greatly simplifies the optical
connections and calibrations. The 65 dB dynamic range in return loss enables the measurement of high performance angled physical contact (APC) connectors.

A simple intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) and keypad minimizes training requirements. A universal serial bus (USB) interface may be used for test automation interfacing to a PC.While connected by USB, the cORL-A1 does not require an additional mains connection, reducing cord tangle. The unit comes equipped with internal battery backup for quick measurements around the lab or for use during power outages.
