The MW90010A Coherent OTDR (C-OTDR) from Anritsu utilises a new coherent detection scheme to produce improved dynamic range and sensitivity.

Due to its high performance the MW90010A Coherent OTDR can measure optical submarine cables up to 12,000kms long with good accuracy.

The MW90010A Coherent OTDR detects faults with up to 10-metre resolution and can collect 1.2 million data points for accurate analysis on long optical submarine cables, up to 12,000 kms in length.

The C-OTDR detects faults and captures important waveform data, including cable loss, bending loss, and fibre length, all the parameters that support detailed submarine cable evaluation.

The MW90010A Coherent OTDR can accurately measure optical submarine cables with optical repeaters spaced at intervals of 80kms or more. The wavelength of the MW90010As built-in light source can be tuned with ±0.2 nm accuracy in the range of 1535.03nm ~ 1565.08nm, supporting DWDM submarine cable systems.

The MW90010A Coherent OTDR is small in size, and weighing less than 17kgs offers convenient on-site portability. A touch-panel display makes for simple operation, even for inexperienced users.

The size, ease of use, and high accuracy make the MW90010A Coherent OTDR the tool of choice for transmission equipment manufacturers and service providers who need to verify submarine cable performance.
