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.

Broadband Source (BBS)
A Broadband Source is a spectrally large source that emits a signal which contains a continuous range of frequencies with a broad optical bandwidth (usually 100 nm or more). Sometimes called a white light source, there are two different meanings of this term. Visible white light and a source which does not necessarily emit in the visible spectral region.

Coherence is the pattern and or relationships of waves due to phase properties.

Linearity is the relative difference between the displayed power ratio, Dx/D0, and the actual (true) power ratio Px/P0 caused by changing the displayed power level from the reference level, D0, to an arbitrary displayed level, Dx.

Power Flatness Over Modulation
When changing the wavelength and modulation frequency, and measuring the differences between actual and displayed power levels (in dB), the power flatness is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Singlemode fiber
Singlemode Fiber has a small core, only about 9 microns, and is used for telephony and CATV with laser sources at 1300 and 1550 nm. It can go very long distances at very high speeds. Both multimode and singlemode fiber have an outside diameter of 125 microns - about 5 thousandths of an inch - just slightly larger than a human hair.
