CORNING OV-1000 Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) Mainframe

The Corning Cable Systems OV-1000 Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) provides testing flexibility by combining a rugged platform with field-interchangeable multimode, single-mode and advanced testing modules. All OTDR modules can be used as continuous wave (CW) light sources. Available as options on the mainframe are a power meter and visual fault locator (VFL). The OV-1000 utilizes Windows® CE technology allowing for a fast power-up time of four seconds. The OV-1000 has an 80 MB internal flash memory that typically stores up to 1500 traces and eliminates the need for a hard drive, which can fail under extreme field conditions. If extra storage capacity is needed, the unit offers USB A/B ports and a compact flash slot.

The OV-1000 OTDR product line offers a wide variety of multimode and single-mode modules. Modules are cross-platform compatible between the OV-1000 and the OptiVisorâ„¢ 400 OTDR mainframes. The OV-1000 has the capacity to hold up to two OTDR modules or one OTDR module and one advanced testing module at the same time. Modules can be easily switched out in the field, without the use of tools, in just a matter of seconds.

Display: Color touchscreen, 640 x 480 TFT 163 mm (6.4 in).
Interfaces: USB A main; USB B remote; RJ-45 LAN 10/100 Mb/s; compact flash; fiber inspection probe connector port (video).
Storage: Internal 80 MB (flash); USB sticks 1 GB and 2 GB (optional); compact flash cards (optional).


Standard Calibration $295.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the CORNING OV-1000. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Bandwidth is the difference between the upper and lower frequencies in a contiguous set of frequencies within which a fiber optic component, link or network will operate.

Extinction Ratio (ER)
Extinction Ratio is the ratio of two optical power levels, of a digital signal generated by an optical source, (example a laser diode), where P1 is the optical power level generated when the light source is "on," and P0 is the power level generated when the light source is "off." The extinction ratio may be expressed as a fraction, in dB, or as a percentage.

Optical Signal-to-noise Ratio (OSNR)
Optical Signal-to-noise ratio is the ratio between the signal power and the noise power in a given bandwidth. Most commonly a reference bandwidth of 0.1 nm is used. This bandwidth is independent from the modulation format, the frequency and the receiver. For instance a OSNR of 20dB/0.1nm could be given, even the signal of 40 GBit DPSK would not fit in this bandwidth. OSNR is measured with a Optical Spectrum Analyzer. It is generally measured at the wavelength of interest.

Repeatability is the variation in a number of repeated measured quantities when measurement conditions are changed and restored. The value corresponds to half the spread between the minimum and maximum value measured.

Wavelength Repeatability
Wavelength Repeatability is the random uncertainty in reproducing a wavelength after detuning and re-setting the wavelength. The wavelength repeatability is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all actual values of these wavelengths. Example test condition: uninterrupted TLS output power, constant power level, temperature within operating temperature range, coherence control off, short time span. Note: NOTE The long-term wavelength repeatability can be obtained by taken the wavelength repeatability and wavelength stability into account.
