Corning Cable Systems LLC, part of Corning Incorporated’s (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, introduces its new OTS-600 Series optical sources, meters, testers and kits with data storage capabilities. Designed with ease of use as a top priority, the series of units maintains all the functionality one expects from an optical tester.
Corning Cable Systems OTS-600 Series units have data storage for 10,000 results, an USB data transfer interface and a video inspection probe port. Both the OT-600 and OS-400 units come standard with a 650 nm visual fault locator (VFL) for convenient troubleshooting of optical networks. Ease of use has been achieved using a large color LCD screen, soft-key menus and a testing wizard.
The OTS-600 Series features an intuitive certification wizard which takes the user step-by-step through testing. During testing, the results are shown in tabular format making it easy for the user to view results. The table conveniently shows any saved data for a specified fiber, making reviewing and updating results simple and efficient.
The OTS-600 Series comes with OTS-View reporting software for creating comprehensive certification reports. The software allows the user to save, upload, manage and print reports. The software automatically transfers the unit model, serial number, date tested and other data from user input fields. The output of the report can be printed or stored electronically in HTML format for viewing with any web browser, CSV format for viewing with MS Excel or TXT for viewing with a document editor.
The OTS-600 Series comes ready for connector inspection with a built-in video probe port and software. The video inspection probe (VIP) allows for the inspection of a fiber optic connector’s end-face quality. The resulting images can be used as documentation of end-face quality and cleanliness.
Corning Cable Systems will be featuring the OTS-600 Series at the 2008 ACUTA Conference and Exhibition, July 13-17, in Las Vegas.
