Anritsu Company announced ACCESS Master MT9085 handheld testers to assist engineers to ensure accuracy in measurement during installation and maintenance of fiber optic cable in LTE and 5G backhaul, as well as Metro and Core networks.
The new MT9085 handheld testers from the Japan-based test and measurement company incorporates 8-inch touchscreen for enhanced operation, as well as integrates Anritsu’s innovative Fiber Visualizer as a standard feature.
Engineers will gain from improvement in OTDR waveform analysis for ease of use and reduction in on-site work time. The main features of the ACCESS Master MT9085 testers are rotary knob, hard keys and the 8-inch touchscreen.
Field technicians can use the tool to display fiber events, such as splices, connectors, and splitters, as a schematic map. Fiber Visualizer allows technicians to conduct high-quality fiber measurements and pass/fail evaluations by eliminating complex operations, such as reading and analyzing optical waveforms. They can reduce operator evaluation errors due to automatic pass/fail evaluation based on preset threshold values.
Engineers can use ACCESS Master MT9085 testers to conduct optical power loss measurements and fiber far-end detection. The field tester comes with a unique algorithm that detects fiber events with high accuracy in complex passive optical networks (PONs) to reduce on-site workloads.
Engineers can integrate optical power meter, visible light source, and optical fiber end-face inspection function VIP (Video Inspection Probe) into the platform to create a complete all-in-one toolkit for fiber installation and maintenance. Engineers can manage measurement results at the central office using WLAN and Bluetooth connections.
