After splicing an extension fiber to an existing fiber, it is necessary to perform an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) measurement.
The OTDR operator is able to observe the splicing process as it takes place, typically some distance away.
The work completion notice function in the AQ7280 and AQ1210 alerts the user with a display indication and sound. The OTDR operator does not need to continually monitor the display and can perform other work until the splice is completed. This function reduces the working hours dedicated to splicing.
