Corning Cable Systems, part of Corning Inc.’s Telecommunications segment, today released the OV-1000, an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) designed for testing and troubleshooting of LAN, telco, CATV and FTTx networks.

The unit contains interchangeable multimode, single-mode and advanced testing modules, which can be quickly switched out in the field.

The OV-1000 OTDR has an 80 MB internal flash memory that can store up to 1,500 traces and eliminates the need for a hard drive, which can fail under extreme field conditions. If extra storage is required, USB A/B ports and a compact flash slot are offered.

A splash-proof mainframe allows for testing in harsh conditions, and the 6.4-inch color touch screen is resistant to shock, water and most common chemicals used in the field.

The OV-1000 OTDR offers three test modes — auto, advanced and template trace — and is future-ready with the ability to accept protocol testing modules, such as Gigabit Ethernet, as they become available.
