Build your own OTDR system with the Anritsu embedded OTDR series. It integrates industry leading OTDR technology into any standard PCI or cPCI bus.

Our high resolution, high dynamic range test systems are ideally suited for both short and long haul testing or monitoring applications. OMETS OTDRs are available in several wavelength and dynamic range combinations to handle virtually any application - single-mode or multimode, “dark” or “active” fibres.

All of the OMETS are designed for easy hardware integration with any standard PC featuring a PCI/PCI-x bus or rack-mounted PC chassis featuring a cPCI bus and feature a software developer's kit (SDK) to initialize and operate the modules. Simply create your own user interface, using the included demo utility as a guide, to provide state of the art OTDR performance with your personalized GUI.


Key Benefits Fast and easy integration with included software developer's kit (SDK)
Compact size enables integration into transmission systems
Industry leading Anritsu OTDR performance for your application
Up to 256,000 data points for unparalleled resolution

Features High dynamic range and superb resolution
cPCI or PCI interfaces
Ready to install hardware, ready to be accessed software
Easy integration with LabVIEW and TestPoint
High Performance Hardware
The cPCI version is a self-contained OTDR module featuring the optics and data acquisition unit DAU integrated into a single 6U-8HP card with status LEDs.

It can be installed into any cPCI chassis in seconds and features hot swap capability.

The PCI version includes the PCI/PCI-x bus interface card, ribbon cable and optics module that can be mounted into an unused PC drive bay or as a stand-alone unit for desktop use.

OMETS Software
Anritsu's software suite provides total control over all OTDR functions and parameters including:

OTDR initialization
Parameter selection and retrieval from card
OTDR acquisition parameters - wavelength, pulsewidth, data sampling
Data acquisition - real time or averaged
Data averaging (timed or number of averages)
Data transfer and storage
Event analysis table - event location, loss characteristics and classification by type
The OMETS series software support CD includes:

Documented library of data acquisition/control and analysis API's.
Demo application as a MS Visual C (Ver 6) Project - All source code, headers and build environment are included.
Demo application, and its associated source code, provide a valuable "sample" for users who wish to write their own application or user interface.
