EXFO - OX1-PRO-M-88
Optical Explorer has been designed from the ground up to tackle the challenges ahead and simplify testing. Optical Explorer allows streamlined procedures that reduce delays and escalation costs on the field while freeing up expert technicians to focus on more relevant tasks.
Optical Explorer is the industry’s first optical fiber multimeter (OFM), a new purposebuilt category of tools empowering frontline techs to effectively carry out installation, activation and repair operations. Optical Explorer speeds up link health verification with embedded fault tracking—all in one single-ended test that’s quick and easy.
To cope with the increasing volume of fiber being rolled out, Optical Explorer has been designed from the start to equip large crews of frontline technicians:
- Optimized for utmost user experience. It is highly intuitive and easy to use for any technician regardless of experience in fiber optics or other technologies (such as copper or DSL).
- Designed to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) throughout the product life cycle by cutting all hidden costs.
Optical Explorer determines overall link quality and tracks potential faults, this in turn helps to boost work efficiency and quality for frontline techs. Unlike traditional instruments in their toolbox, Optical Explorer won’t leave field technicians blind to faults. Instead, Optical Explorer introduces new capabilities that break boundaries to redefine the role of field technicians. Each technician gets more autonomy to solve issues, enabling a leaner troubleshooting process that doesn’t require several technicians with various skills.
While displaying insertion loss (IL), optical return loss (ORL) as well as fiber length under a few seconds and in one single-ended process requiring no referencing, Optical Explorer also looks for potential faults. It won’t waste precious time on good links, but if a fault is suspected, Optical Explorer will automatically explore further and diagnose the fault, if applicable.
