NOYES CS260-20 Metro/Access OTDR

The NOYES CS260-20 Contractor Series Metro/Access OTDR is a dual-wavelength, 1310/1550 nm OTDR for troubleshooting point-to-point metro/access optical networks up to 60 km (40 miles) in length. The CS260-20 provides extremely short event and attenuation dead zones (0.8 and 3.5 m, respectively), enabling closely spaced events to be individually resolved and measured in short access networks. To further aid in locating faults within access points, splice closures or indoor cabling, the CS260-20 includes an integrated Visual Fault Locator (VFL, a visible red laser). Intended for single-mode optical network installation verification and troubleshooting, the CS260-20 is extremely easy to use. It provides fully automatic OTDR parameter selection, automatic event table generation and end-to-end length, loss and optical return loss (ORL) summary. For expert users, the CS260-20 also allows full control of OTDR parameters (range, pulse width, averaging time, etc.). OTDR Specifications. Emitter Type: Laser.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the NOYES CS260-20. 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.

Related Optical Terms and Definitions. For a complete list go to our  Terms and Definitions Page.

A change in the optical frequency caused by direct modulation of the laser. A chirp is a signal in which the frequency increases ('up-chirp') or decreases ('down-chirp') with time. In some sources, the term chirp is used interchangeably with sweep signal.

The extent to which optical power from one signal path is prevented from reaching another signal path.

Polarization Extinction Ratio
Polarization Extinction Ratio is the ratio of optical power in the slow axis of the polarization maintaining fiber to optical power in the fast axis within a specified wavelength range.

Sidemode Suppression Ratio
Sidemode Suppression Ratio is the ratio of average signal power to the optical power of the highest sidemode within a distance from 0.1 to 6 GHz to the signal’s optical frequency, expressed in dB.

Wavelength Stability
Wavelength Stability is the change of wavelength during given time span, expressed as ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum of all actual wavelengths.
