Low-cost optical LAN testing

Specifically designed to make checking and fault-finding quick and easy on fibre-optic data networks, the new XC850 cross-checking reflectometer from Megger provides state-of-the-art performance with simplicity of use at a very competitive price.

The key operating parameters of the instrument are preset to suit the requirements of data network installations, and the user is guided through the measurement, automatic trace analysis and storage procedures by intuitive control keys.

Adaptable to the operator's needs

Operator preferences are easily configured using menu screens on the instrument, or they can be set up using a PC, and be simply downloaded to the XC850 via the plug-in memory card. Not only does this eliminate time spent on setting up the instrument on-site, it also means that operators can carry out tests accurately and effectively without requiring extensive training or experience in using optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDRs).

High resolution

Megger's XC850 cross-checking reflectometer operates at 850nm, and can be used on fibre systems up to 2km in length, with losses of up to 13dB. The distance resolution is 0.5 metre, and the event deadzone (-40db reflection) is less than 1 metre.

The unit is available in two versions: the XC850ST is fitted with a brilliant backlit colour display which is ideal for indoor applications, while the XC850SSR features a transflective colour display which can be easily read indoors and in bright outdoor daylight. Both versions include a full alpha-numeric keyboard which greatly simplifies the entry of the identification data relating to individual tests.

OTDR software compatible

Data entry via an external barcode scanner is also supported. Configuration data, test identification data and measurement traces are stored on removable memory cards in Telcordia GR196 format, as well as in standard CSV format, ensuring compatibility with virtually all OTDR software packages and with Microsoft Office applications.
