Ideal for Network-Link Characterization
Combined with the EXFO’s future-proof AXS-200 Handheld Modular Platform, the AXS-200/350 Optical Loss Test Set (OLTS) is the ideal tool for network-link characterization. Designed for first-class ease of use, the AXS-200/350 features a pass/fail LED indicator; what’s more, it lets you set your own thresholds for loss measurements. Thanks to its large data storage and its standard reporting software, the AXS-200/350 facilitates data management and enables data transfer via Bluetooth or USB connection. It also offers complete test report, including certification of the link with pass/fail information. Moreover, the optional fiber inspection probe ensures that you perform a connection with clean connectors/adapters, exempt of any defect while the controlled multimode launching conditions ensures reliable and repeatable loss measurements; no loss variation due to uncontrolled launch conditions.
Key features and benefits
Easy-to-read pass/fail thresholds with visual LED feedback, error-free semi-automatic loss testing and loss wizard: Reduces operator errors and testing time in typical measurement situations.
AXS-200 SharpTESTER platform main characteristics—modularity, connectivity, weather-proof and high-legibility color screen: Expands with your network and service test requirements, covering copper/DSL/triple-play, Ethernet and other optical application; optimal viewing with the transflective screen; easy data transfer via Bluetooth or USB connection.
Fiber inspection probe support: Ensures that connectors/adapters are clean and exempt of any defect.
Visual fault locator capability: Provides quick and easy troubleshooting.
CWDM test solution ready and high power detector: Comes standard with 40 calibrated wavelengths, covering all CWDM wavelengths; supports high power GeX for CATV and FTTx radio frequency overlay applications.
Error-free test features in a highly versatile module
When using the AXS-200/350 in Auto-Switching mode, the light source automatically toggles between available wavelengths. The power meter recognizes the wavelengths and automatically switches to the proper wavelength. With a press of a button, you can store results for all wavelengths at once, providing easy and error-free testing. Thanks to its unique design, the AXS-200/350 OLTS reduces risk of error and measurement time in typical measurement situations, as the need for an offset nulling is eliminated. In addition to network-link characterization features, the highly accurate AXS-200/350 offers over 40 calibrated wavelengths, including all CWDM wavelengths. What’s more, it lets you measure power fluctuations with its Hold Min/Max Power function.
EXFO’s AXS-200/350 allows for the testing of passive optical networks (PONs) at 1310 nm, 1490 nm and 1550 nm, the three wavelengths recommended by the ITU-T (G.983.3) for PONs.
Certify your network in a snap
At first, just edit and save your standard. Than, it’s the matter of a few easy steps to get the test results: 1. Select a standard 2. Follow the easy step by step loss wizard 3. Set reference 4. Start the test
Retest fibers as needed
If the loss measured is above the budget, the fiber can easily be retested.
View all results at a glance
Once the cable is completely tested, the AXS-200/350 displays a table of all values measured along with pass/fail status, based on user-inputted fiber length.
Connector inspection and cleaning
It’s a fact! Most fiber network problems are caused by dirty, damaged or improperly installed connectors, which can lead to erroneous test results or poor transmission. Using a FIP to ensure connectors/adapters are clean and exempt of any defect is where accurate testing starts. Avoid failing certification testing thanks to the FIP port on the AXS-200/350. Just plug EXFO’s efficiently designed, unmatched FIP-400 Fiber Inspection Probe and you are all set! You will get the best ever optical resolution.
Troubleshoot link problems such as bad splices, macrobendings and fiber breaks using EXFO’s visual fault locator. The VFL’s bright red light helps you visually locate many near-end fiber faults and tests polarity. With this valuable and costefficient option, you will benefit from another opportunity to expand your business.
Comprehensive certification reports using Optical Report Viewer
Save, upload, manage and print comprehensive certification reports with EXFO’s Optical Report Viewer. Among its numerous features, this software’s pass/fail thresholds, which are active during download, are automatically activated and displayed in the Report Viewer. It also enables you to produce professional-looking reports with detailed documentation.
