The new Noyes M100-K-SM OTDR is a singlemode Optical Time Domain Reflectometer with integrated VFL (visual fault locator). Using "PDA" technology the M100 reaches a new level of value and portability. By combining a simple user interface with the features of a mini-OTDR in a "micro" package, the M100 is ideal for premises network Tier 2 fiber link certification and fault-location measurements including: connection loss and reflectance, splice loss, and fiber loss slope (attenuation rate). The M100 is also suited for broadband service providers looking for a highly portable OTDR to document and trouble-shoot fiber links in their access and FTTx (fiber to the home/curb/office) networks.
The multimode OTDR port is equipped with a tool-free, switchable adapter mount. ST, SC, and FC adapters are provided. The VFL port is equipped with a universal adapter that accepts any standard 2.5 mm connector. Saved test results can be transferred to a PC for archiving, printing, and analyzing with the supplied trace analysis software. Test results are stored in [*.sor] format.
All M100 models include: CompactFlash™ memory card, trace analysis software, carry case, AC adapter (specify power cord), manual, plus switchable SC, FC, and ST adapters.

Q: Will the safety filter protect your eyes with a 0dbm power level? Do you have any specs on what is a safe level with the filters?
A: The safety filter would protect your eyes from a 0 dBm power level. The safety filter in the OFS 300 will drop a 0 dBm power level to between -30 dBm to -40 dBm. However, we do not promote inspecting live fibers. It is always the best practice to take all precautions in making sure the fiber you are inspecting is not live.
Q: When I power my optical power meter off, do I need to perform the set reference procedure?
A: No, the reference is stored in the meter until it has been over written by a new reference setting.
Q: When I remove the batteries from my optical power meter, will I lose my test results?
A: No, your test results are stored in ROM memory.
Q: Is there any charge for downloaded software?
A: No, all software may be downloaded "Free of Charge" and distributed as shareware. Any test equipment manufactured by Noyes that requires software, will be shipped with software and download cables.
