Description

The AQ7280 has a best-in-class 8.4-inch capacitive touchscreen that supports the same intuitive multi-touch functionality found in smartphones and other handheld devices, allowing users to reposition and resize objects on the screen. The AQ7280 also has the same operation hard keys found on the preceding model. Users can opt to use either the touchscreen or the hard keys.

There are nine models in the AQ7280 series. These include the AQ7285A, which has an industry leading 50 dB dynamic range suitable for long-distance measurements, and the AQ7283K, which can measure up to four different wavelengths. The AQ7280 series offers remarkable flexibility and convenience with modular measuring units that can be replaced in the field. As new measuring units are developed to keep up with advances in optical technology, the AQ7280 can be modified simply by replacing the measuring unit.

  • Multi-tasking – Enhancing productivity

    Managed by a highly efficient operating system, multiple functions can work simultaneously. Now, users can perform OTDR measurements on a particular fiber core while simultaneously checking the power level and connector surface quality on others.
  • Smart Mapper – Single button measurement. Comprehensive network characterization. Easy to read report

    Measurement acquisitions with multiple pulse widths and smart-algorithm enable users to detect and comprehensively characterize network events by pressing one single button. Simple, icon-based map view for easy interpretation of network events. Immediate PASS/FAIL judgment based on user-defined thresholds. Easily toggled trace view for manual supplementary analysis.
  • Dual-operation Mode – Touch screen and hard-key buttons

    Tap, swipe, pinch or press. Choose between the high resolution 8.4-inch multi-touch capacitive touchscreen or the robust hard-key buttons in any combination desired. OTDR operations have never been easier.

    Multi-Fiber Measurement – Database view. Organized. Quick preview of network characteristics

    OTDR-based application in a database view. Guiding users in tracking multi fibers measurements in sequence. OTDR trace, power level and connector surface image of a particular fiber core are organized as one group. With PASS/FAIL judgment, fiber core performance is easily characterized.
  • Plug Check Function–Checking the connection with the OTDR

    Never spoil measurements with poor connections or dirty plugs The plug check function monitors the condition of the OTDR’s optical input/output connectors and displays an alarm if the connection is not properly made. This function is useful for checking for damage, dirt, or other problems with optical plugs at the OTDR or on the fiber under test, and for helping technicians to remember to connect the fiber under test
  • Lightning Startup Time – Under 10 seconds

    Thanks to the latest high speed hardware and a highly efficient operating system, the AQ7280 starts up from completely OFF to measurement ready in seconds. It’s always ready when you are
  • Wireless Connectivity – Remote control. Remote data transfer

    Control the OTDR remotely using Windows™ operating system devices via wireless router connection technology. Transfer measurements results from the OTDR to Windows™ operating system devices via FlashAir™ technology. Send the results/reports by email/fi le transfer software for immediate reporting.
  • Eagle Eye – Hunt down your breakpoint precisely and promptly

    Enabling highest possible sampling resolution in a long distance measurement range, distance offset error is reduced. With a relatively small distance offset error, users are able to pinpoint the actual break location in high distance accuracy. Faster location identifi cation, faster repair time.
  • Modularity – Full range of selections

    9 OTDR units ranging from single mode to multi mode, from low dynamic range to ultra-high dynamic range, and 2 wavelengths to 4 wavelengths. Selection of power sensor, light source, visible light source and fi ber inspection probe for instrument’s customization based on users’ needs.
  • Connector Quality Assurance – Zoomed in, checked out, all fi xed up

    Using high-performance Lightel™ fi ber inspection probe, fiber connector surface is visualized for inspection of scratches and dirt. Reducing 90% of fi ber cable problem.
  • Intermittent Connection Monitoring

    Under cold weather conditions, fiber network connectivity can be interrupted intermittently due to bending/loose connections events. Identifying such intermittent interruption requires periodic monitoring and advanced analysis algorithm. The OTDR Schedule Measurement function is useful to monitor a particular fiber core based on user-defined measurement period and interval. Measurement results are compared with a reference trace and analyzed for any discrepancies. Based on user-defined loss threshold, discrepancy at a particular distance is identified and the occurrence time is recorded.
  • Fault Locator

    OTDR-based application for simply identifying fiber break location. Adaptive, smart-algorithm based on selected network architectures, such as point-to-point or PON network topology. Simple view of distance information for easy interpretation. Easily toggled trace view for additional detail analysis.
  • PON Optimized

    Excellent hardware performance and advanced analysis algorithm, enables the AQ7280* to accurately characterize Passive Optical Network (PON) through high-port-count splitters (up to 1 × 128). PON mode assists beginner/expert users in simply configuring OTDR measurement settings based on PON topology information for optimal results. Short event dead zone and high sampling resolution enable users to detect near-end location of connectors that are as close as 0.5 meters (<20 inches). With the built-in optical cut filter and dedicated measurement port, the AQ7283F module is capable to measure live PON for maintenance purpose.
