M310 Data Center OTDR w OPM & VFL

SKU: M310 Data Center OTDR w OPM & VFL

M310 Data Center OTDR w OPM & VFL


Product Description

NOYES M310 OTDR from AFL is specifically designed to address the technical challenges associate with today’s Data Center architectures and network speeds.Inherent in today’s Top of Rack (TOR) or End of Rack (EOR) data center configurations are ultra-short fiber links, more numerous patch panels and cross-connections. At the same time bandwidth demands is accelerating the deployment of 40 and 100G Ethernet. Network uptime is critical in Data Center networks, being able to pinpoint faults to an end of a jumper cable and get the network back on line is crucial.

The M310 combines ease of use (Touch and Test®) with industry leading specifications in a field rugged, hand-held package. Integrated OTDR, OPM and VFL functionality with inspection capability simplifies setup, testing or troubleshooting and reduces network outage time .

With dead- zones less than 1 m and  dynamic ranges of up to 38 dB the M310 is ideal for testing, troubleshooting and documenting Data Center, Enterprise, SAN/LAN/WAN, co-location, campus, Department of Transportation and military single-mode and multimode (62.5 and 50 micron) fiber networks.


M310 Multifunction OTDR Features and Benefits:


• Industry leading dead zones to help validate and troubleshoot typical Data Center and 

  Enterprise networks comprised of multiple connections and short jumpers.

  - Event Dead Zones 0.8m

  - Attenuation Dead-zones < 3 m

• Enhanced Mode Fill (EMF) - Enables users to get more accurate loss results, comparable to measurements made with expensive external mode conditioners without sacrificing dynamic range or adding another box to manage during testing

• Built in Optical Power Meter - Test and store both Tier 1 and Tier 2 results in one tester

• Built in Visual Fault Locator (VFL) - enables technicians to quickly identify fiber faults within OTDR dead zone and verify polarity

• Front End and First Connector checks - verify launch quality to help users obtain better OTDR trace results

• Live Fiber Detection and Indication direct users to validate they are on the correct fiber or turn off the source so they can obtain an OTDR trace

• Dynamic Range suited testing fibers beyond the Data Center

  - 38 dB Single-mode

  - 30 dB Multimode

• Inspection ready - the M310 supports the DFS Digital FiberScope for inspecting the finish and cleanliness of connector end-faces, which is a leading cause of network failures 

• Fast Real Time OTDR mode for use in troubleshooting or splicing applications

• Field proven, compact, rugged product packaging is designed for both outside plant use and cramped inside plant environments.


M310 Touch and Test® supports users of all levels


Full Auto Mode – Connect and press test. M310 will detect fiber and set recommended test parameters. Perfect for novice technicians or repair techs quickly looking for faults on fiber spans of unknown length.

Auto-Once Mode – Designed for testing cables with multiple fibers. M310 performs a full auto test on the first fiber and retains recommended settings allowing fast expert-speed testing of subsequent fibers.

Expert Mode – Provides access to testing parameters for experienced users to setup optimal testing scenarios for specific networks.

Real-Time Mode – Fast continuous OTDR operation and display update allows users to dynamically change networks while monitoring OTDR trace results. Example: relaxing fiber bends to reduce attenuation loss.


M310 Touch and Test® Features


Top menu level touch screen access to major test modes allow users to test networks faster- no time wasted with complicated menu structures. The M310 provides one-touch access to OTDR and OPM test modes and DFS inspection mode when enabled.

• Set Pass/Fail thresholds compliant with TIA/ISO/user-defined values to alert test operators of failing or marginal events.

• New Job creation editor with detailed job/file naming allows users to quickly create file for storing results with flexibility for custom Job, Route, Cable, Fiber file naming.

• Structured file management to logically and easily store test results.

• Results Manager allows in-unit review saved test results and quick selection of previously created jobs for storing current job test results.

• Access general settings including Date/Time/Number format options and an Auto Off feature.

• OTDR settings enhanced event measurements with various manual LSA methods available in Expert mode.

• A simple toggle function enables fast and logical storage of trace, Loss and inspection results from both ends of a fiber/cable.


The M310 supports visual inspection per IEC 61300-3-5 visual inspection practices using a NOYES DFS1 Digital FiberScope providing the user the ability to view and document connector end-face images with their OTDR traces and loss/power measurements
Touch and Test® capabilities simplify the user experience; reduce training time and testing errors enabling even novices to get the job done quickly and accurately.


Data Storage and Reporting Capabilities (TRMTM)



Advanced Analysis Software

The Advanced Analysis software features macro/microbend detection and bi-directional trace analysis and is available for the M310 and in TRM 2.0 Advanced Analysis PC software. Macro/Microbend detection helps technicians identify installation problems. Excessive bends or stress on fibers will show up as excessive attenuation at higher wavelengths. These bends or stresses are indicated on the Event Table with a special icon. Bi-directional trace analysis, used to resolve errors due to mis-matched single-mode fibers, measures the loss of events in the End 1 to End 2 and End 2 to End 1 directions, then calculates a two-way average of the OTDR's loss measurements, which is the true loss of the event.
