8000i In-Process Test OTDR

Cost effective, comprehensive test solution for high speed, in-process cable testing

The 8000i In-Process Test OTDR is the most recent addition to Photon Kinetics' family of innovative solutions for optical fiber cable testing. The 8000i's "cable test optimization" provides the balance of OTDR dynamic range and dead zone performance that's proven to be most effective for accurate characterization of typical fiber cable lengths. Dynamic range has been maximized to reduce measurement time, while resolution has been tuned to ensure that typical cabled fiber defects are detected. The 8000i delivers this optimized measurement capability at a more economical price than our full featured, final QC 8000 OTDR, which makes it a perfect fit for "in-process" testing on ribbonizing or loose tube production lines.
