Corning Cable Systems, part of Corning Inc.’s Telecommunications segment, has 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 also has an 80 MB internal flash memory that can store up to 1,500 traces, which eliminates the need for a hard drive that might fail under extreme field conditions. If extra storage is required, USB A/B ports and a compact flash slot are offered.

In addition, a splash-proof mainframe allows for testing in harsh conditions.
