Product Description

AV6416 palm OTDR is the newest instrument designed for testing FTTx network. It´s mainly used to measure the physical characteristics of optical fiber under test, such as the length,the transmission loss and the splice loss etc.. It can also locate the faults or breaks of optical fiber. It´s widely applied in the manufacture, construction and maintenance in optical fiber communication system.
AV6416 palm OTDR has the most advanced technology of double-color & material integrative mould,which is novel and beautiful in appearance.AV6416 offers three wavelengths and VLF in one handheld unit, especially for testing passive optical network (PON) in FTTx. In addition, it´s equipped with comfortable gallus for carrying conveniently.

    ο  WinCE operation system, double operating interface of Chinese and English
    ο Built-in lithium battery with high capacity for over 10 hours of operating life
    ο Visible fault locating (VFL)
    ο Universal FC/PC,FC/SC,FC/ST connector type, it´s convenient for surface cleaning
    ο Unique function of updating system on-line, returning to factory is unnecessary

Communication light check:

    When measuring a fiber in service, the measuring result by an OTDR is not precise, and there is a potential risk of permanent damage to the internal photoelectric of OTDR receiver. To prevent these problems, the AV6418 OTDR can detect automatically and silently if communication light is present after the fiber under test is connected, once the light is verified present, simultaneously, a warning message will be displayed and internal OTDR protection will be active instantly.



AV6416 Palm OTDR is mainly used to measure FTTx network, it provides a low cost solution for users. AV6416 offers three measuring modes: manual mode (including real time mode and average mode), auto mode and dead zone mode.

Manual measurement mode: manual mode is suitable for skilled operator who is familiar with the instrument. In this measurement mode, to get more accurate results, real-time mode or average mode can be selected if necessary.

In real-time mode, the dynamic changes of fiber chain can be detected timely, it is very useful when you need to observe the effect and process of fiber being spliced or connected.

In average measurement mode, the noise in trace can be suppressed, and the SNR(signal noise ratio) is improved, therefore,the result is more accurate. In fact, the more average times is executed, the more noise in trace is suppressed, and the longer time is spent for signal processing. In practice, the average times should be set properly according to necessity.

Auto measurement mode: the optimized measurement conditions are set automatically, it´s unnecessary to operator to know about the complicated background knowledge and the further details of operating. In this mode, the more accurate results can be gained when proper average times are set, but it will increase the time of signal processing.

Dead zone mode: this mode is suitable for testing optical fiber with short distance and the optimized settings of distance range, pulse width and attenuator can be executed automatically. To get the best result, the terminal return loss should be guaranteed less than -40dB.


Note1:pulse width 10240ns, average times≥300,SNR=1,23℃±2℃;
Note2:dead zone mode, distance range : ≤ 4km, pulse width:10 ns, terminal reflection loss:≥40 dB, typical;

Note3:low brightness, exclude measuring.
