Optical reflectometers for access networks AXS-100 and AXS-110, manufactured by EXFO combine the leading technologies of reflectometry, the functions of a power meter and a visual flaw detector (transmission) in one hand-held device. A video microscope can also be connected to the EXFO AXS-100 and AXS-110 reflectometers. The AXS100 and AXS110 are compact, rugged and lightweight OTDRs
optimized for testing optical networks, including access networks, FTTx-PON, LAN and WAN.

device EXFO AXS-110 optimized for testing Passive Optical Networks (pon) in architectures FTTx. The OTDR is offered in multiple wavelength configurations and a wide range of accessories to achieve first-class flexibility. You can use it to test Optical Network Terminals (ONTs), end terminals or distribution panels to evaluate the performance of FTTH distribution fibers, troubleshoot and locate defects.


AXS-100 series: four models to choose from

The AXS-100 reflectometer series provides the user with all the necessary functions when working with medium-range fiber optic lines. All reflectometers have an extremely small dead zone and an excellent dynamic range, four models are included in the series, which allows you to choose the device that best suits your requirements.


Features of reflectometers for access networks EXFO AXS-100 and AXS-110

- one device for testing single-mode and multimode (50 and 62.5 microns) fibers.
- wavelengths 850, 1300, 1310 and 1550 nm with dynamic ranges of 24, 25, 32 and 30 dB, respectively.
- an extremely small event dead zone of 0.8 m allows you to accurately detect and evaluate all types of defects.
- one-touch testing, final reports, macrobend detection.
- easy to use: one-button testing in combination with EXFO's special FTTx testing software (functions: finding defects and macrobends, pass/fail indicators).
- a wide range of additional functions: power meter, visual flaw detector (VFL), video microscope, printer and IP test function.
- the mode of finding defects allows you to quickly detect a broken fiber.
- Flexibility in connection options: compatibility with external USB drives, data download via USB port using ActiveSync software.
- high-quality color TFT screen allows you to work with the device in direct sunlight and other adverse environmental conditions.
- manual, lightweight, small-sized device: 1 kg.
- Rugged construction for field work.
- Troubleshooting function allows testing of active networks at wavelengths other than operating wavelengths.


Easy and Reliable FTTx Testing

The EXFO AXS-100 Access Optical OTDR makes testing FTTx networks an easy task. Just connect the fiber, press the FasTrace button and view the result. This handheld instrument is unrivaled in ease of use, even for those with minimal knowledge of optical fiber testing and reflectometry.

The specially designed FTTx testing software package allows you to view all the results at a glance and easily evaluate the condition of the link. Without any further analysis, you can view fiber length data and a detailed status report, and even check for macrobends.

Troubleshooting Function on Active PON Networks:
The AXS-100 Access OTDR has been specially designed for troubleshooting on live PON networks. The instrument can be equipped with an optional separate test port at 1625 nm, which contains a filter that filters out all unwanted signals (1310, 1490 and 1550 nm) that may adversely affect the quality of scatter measurements.
With such a reflectometer, troubleshooting on the optical fibers carrying signals does not interfere with normal operation and does not affect the expected performance of information channels. The AXS100 does not interfere with the operation of the laser transmitters at the Central Site, as it uses a wavelength that is outside the operating range, as recommended by ITU-T L.41 (Maintenance Wavelength on Fibers Carrying Signals).


Fault finding function - visual flaw detector (option VFL)

A visual flaw detector, or as it is also called: translucent, is great for detecting macrobends, defective welds or bad connections, as well as mixed up and mislabeled fibers. To do this, a laser with a wavelength of 650 nm and a universal connector is additionally installed in the AXS-100 and AXS-110 reflectometers, which generates a bright red light visible at the far end of the fiber at a distance of 5-7 kilometers.


Built-in power meter with GeX type detector (option PM2X)

An optional power meter for the AXS-100 and AXS-110 allows operation in the wavelength range from 800 to 1650 nm and the power measurement range from -60 to +26 dBm (GeX detector). The power meter is also calibrated to support CWDM wavelengths. The power meter has a recommended calibration period of three years, greatly reducing the cost of ownership.



Connecting a video microscope FIP-400 to determine the status of connectors (options FP4S and SK3)

In any optical network, the connectors must be kept clean and in good condition, and this is not always easy when working in the field. By using universal video microscope EXFO FIP-400 you can quickly and easily check the condition of the surfaces of connectors or fibers and view their high-resolution enlarged image on the screen of the AXS-100 and AXS-110 reflectometers. You can then save these images to a file for later documentation.
