FirstFiber Launches its new smart OTDR. The model number is FF-980PRO. It is a smart, but useful OTDR for field work. It comes with 4 functions OTDR, OPM, VFL, and OLS. Its 4 inch IPS touch sensitive screen makes it easy to use and users can see words on touch screen clearly even though in sunshine.

As fiber optics plays more and more important role in modern telecommunication and CATV networks, the requirements to the construction, test and maintenance of fiber optics links also become more prominent.

FF-980PRO is a unique product mainly designed for construction and maintenance of telecommunication and CATV networks. The FF-980PRO OTDR can be widely used in engineering construction, maintenance test and emergency repair of all fiber optics related systems. Comparing with a regular OTDR, the FF-980PRO OTDR is more compact in size and easier for field use.

Frequently Asked Questions on the OTDR Model# FF-980PRO

Q1: Does the OTDR (FF-980PRO) support both 1310nm and 1550nm wavelength to test fibers?
A1: Yes, the OTDR support both 1310nm and 1550nm wavelengths. You can switch these two wavelengths on parameter setting easily.

Q2: Does the OTDR (FF-980PRO) support real time and average time testing mode like other famous OTDR?
A2: Yes, the OTDR support both read time and average time testing mode.

Q3: Does the test result can be displayed quickly on screen?
A3: Yes, very quickly. If you selected “Auto” testing mode, it takes 3 to 5 seconds to display OTDR curves and event list on screen. When testing mode stays in “manual” mode, you can set the average time to 15 seconds, 30 seconds, etc…

Q4: What connectors do come with the OTDR?
A4: The OTDR comes with FC, SC and ST connectors in default. LC connector is sold separately.

Q5: My fiber cable is with a APC connector, but I have bought an OTDR with UPC connector(port). How can I make the test?
A5: According to industrial standard, APC connector can not work together with UPC connectors. So (1) please find a short fiber patch cord, one end is with APC and the other end is with UPC. (2) Use the UPC to APC adapter. See the picture. (3) buy an OTDR with APC connector(port). Please let our sales know you are going to buy an OTDR with APC connector before you place your order.

Q6: Do I need to add money for extra functions (VFL, OPM, OLS, Touch Screen) ?
A6: No. The OTDR comes with all of these functions.

Q7: Do the OPM and OLS function can turn on same time?
A7: No, When you turn on OLS, OPM turns off automatically.  And when you turn on OPM, OLS will turn off automatically.  That means the device itself can NOT test its laser value.

Q8: The OTDR can work on short cables, e.g. 3 meters ?
A8: Yes. Please visit our website to watch the video.

Q9: Do you have a video demo?
A9: Yes, please contact our sales to get the video link.

Q10: How to re-calibrate the OTDR, and any fees charged for re-calibration?
A10: The OTDR has been already built-in self-calibration system for Touch Screen Recalibration. So, you can re-calibrate screen easily.  If testing calibration needed to be deployed, OTDRs should be sent back China. 
Customer pays for shipping fees to China while we pay shipping fees to customer.  But within warranty time (3 years), customer does not need to pay any fees. And no other fees will be charged for calibration or repair work.

Q11: What is your warranty time and repair policy?
A11: If software problems, we can send you a firmware for system upgrade by email. If a hardware problem, our engineers can cooperate with you to find which part is broken in OTDR via email or skype video. And we send you the hardware parts, and teach you how to repair. But if it is not easy to repair from your side, you must return back for repair.

Q12: Does the OTDR FF-980PRO support active (live) fiber testing?

A12: No. For active fiber testing, 3 wavelengths’ OTDR is a must. Another model FF-990PRO-T2 is for active fiber testing. Please search the model number in our store.

Q13: Why does Event List disappear some times?
A13: Please check your software version. If version number is before VT2.55, please contact us to get an upgrade-package. You can update its software easily.

Q14: Why are there no test result when far end of fiber cable with APC connector?
A14: Please check your software version. If version number is before VT2.59, please contact us  to get an upgrade-package. You can update its software easily.

Q15: Does the OTDR can generate .sor file and print out testing report?
A15: Yes. Like any other normal OTDR. The FF-980PRO can generate .sor files, and users can print testing report via PC software.

Q16: Could you provide technical support or training service on the OTDR?
A16: Yes, I can help if you have any question on the OTDR.

Q17: Could you make OEM service? I want to make my logo on your OTDR?
A17: Yes, of course. Please contact our sales team.

Q18: Why I can not see A-B distance and attenuation value on PC software?
A18: Please contact us our sales to get a new PC software.
