Overview

From Deviser Instruments’ 4th generation of OTDR, the field- portable AE3100 marks a giant leap forward in fiber-optic measurement performance and utility. Models A through F can test the 1310nm and 1550nm wavelengths with dynamic range up to 45dB.

Featuring intuitive touchscreen controls and real-time data analysis, the AE3100 is the ideal test instrument for constructing, deploying, maintaining, and authenticating FTTx networks, as well as verifying access. Multiple models and configuration options ensure your unique measurement needs are covered.

FiberPath™

Remote Control

In conjunction with the SYNCOR PC-based asset and test data management system, users can issue test orders and collect measurement data remotely from AE3100 units deployed to the field.

OTDR

This high-performing OTDR is the ideal solution for testing optical fiber in RFoG and FTTx applications. The OTDR can identify and locate link impairments and measure the insertion loss by LSA, 2Pt and 4Pt methods. The unit also measures optical return loss (ORL).

Optical Measurements

The AE3100 includes a suite of optical measurement tools, including a power meter, laser source, and visual fault locator (shown below). The unit is available in numerous wavelength configurations for ensuring proper levels in networks such as RFoG and FTTx.

Visual Fault Locator (VFL) beam illuminates bends, splices, and faults in optical fibers.
