OWLView software gathers together all three of these critical data and formats them onto one single-page “Trireport”.
Link certification provides clients with a PASS/FAIL test
result, ensuring that fiber links are installed and tested
according to popular industry standards, including TIA568 and various levels of Ethernet.
When used with a corresponding light source, Fiber OWL 7 certifiers allow users to certify multimode and/or singlemode optical fiber links.
Many clients are also requesting OTDR traces for the
purpose of “link characterization”; i.e. a visual “roadmap”
of the fiber link. OTDR traces include a graphical
representation of the fiber link that shows the different
“events” in the fiber link including patch panels, and event
tables show the relative loss of individual events.
OWLView software allows users to import OTDR traces taken with OWLTrek 2 OTDRs, and appends the traces to the link certification report.
Clients are also interested in seeing the quality of their
fiber endfaces at the time of testing. Endface analysis
digitally inspects a fiber endface image for scratches and
defects that may adversely affect data transmission.
OWLView software includes PASS/FAIL endface analysis based on the popular IEC 61300-3-35 endface inspection standard, and can analyze JPG endface images taken with any fiber videoscope.
Encircled Flux compliant
Encircled Flux (EF) compliance is the latest requirement for testing multimode networks designed for transmission of 10 Gigabits and beyond. When used with EF mode controller cables, Fiber OWL 7 certifiers ensure high-speed multimode networks are compliant to standards-based EF requirements.
User-friendly setup and test procedures
Helpful diagrams on the screen prompt the user to connect the tester to the link as shown, and text-based help screens are available in case users have questions in the field.
Fiber OWL 7 certifiers are a fraction of the cost of bulky over-priced certifiers, saving costconscious technicians and installers thousands of dollars that could be better used elsewhere.
Small, compact size
At nearly a third of the size and weight as compared to much bulkier ultra-expensive certifiers on the market, Fiber OWL 7 certifiers are truly hand-held pocket-sized devices that can be operated in one hand!
