One-touch AutoTest

What it does

Autotest communicates between two fiber loss test instruments, using the fiber under test. 

Used on a source and meter, it sends data from the source to the meter. It synchonises the instrment settings and test process, including nominal source power and serial number.

Used with a pair of two-way testers, two-way data transfer additionally shares the complete bi-directional test results. So both instruments display & store the results. ORL is also integrated into the test sequence.

Two-way Autotest also includes simple user comminications, to assist the sequence of loss testing actions, and avoid the need of using a separate voice link. This also works via KITS™ software.

Faster, smarter, error free operation.

  • Works between any source & meter ports with matching wavelengths, resulting in flexible field operations between quite different instruments.
  • Fast, reliable and stable testing with less training, button pushes and errors.
  • Use with KITS™ software for best convenience, either real time or post-processing.
  • Supports both local or remote referencing.
  • Specify which wavelengths to include. Set up simple one wavelength tests, or speed up a two wavelength test when using a quad wavelength source.
  • Display just one wavelength on your meter, for simplicity.
  • If a wavelength drops out (very high loss), remaining wavelengths continue unaffected.
  • Two-way testers work seamlessly, so that compete test data can be viewed and saved at either end.
  • ORL and length test is zero-effort & integrated into the general test sequence.
