Live mode is an advanced feature normally found in high-end OTDRs.
Live mode continuously shoots OTDR traces every few seconds,
allowing users to monitor changes in the optical fiber in real-time.
In addition, when the OWLTrek is attached to a PC, OWLView software
includes a Live Viewer mode that takes the OTDR trace and expands it
onto the PC display for easier viewing.

|Note: * Dynamic Range / Distance: OWLTrek multimode OTDRs are capable of finding breaks in multimode optical fibers up to 12 miles to
within +/- 6 feet. Additional splices and other loss producing events will limit end distance estimates. This is true for all OTDRs. However,
passive multimode links are rarely longer than 1.25 miles long! At that short distance, OWLTrek has break-finding capability of about +/- 1
meter! In fact, increased dynamic range is actually a disadvantage in almost all cases because of the increased OTDR cost (usually thousands
of dollars more).

|Complete OwlTrek OTDR Product Overview
|Introducing the OWL OWLTrek Hand-Held
With an unbeatable combination of a small pocket-sized form factor,
a high-resolution color LCD display, and some of the lowest pricing in
the industry, the OWLTrek OTDR from OWL is the WISE choice for
cost-conscious buyers who only need to perform basic
troubleshooting or restoration tasks on multimode optical fiber
networks. All this from an OTDR that really is pocket-sized and fair
priced, yet having comparable features and specifications to other
OTDRs in its class.
Affordability. In a time when it is becoming increasingly difficult to
justify equipping an entire technical staff with high-end equipment,
companies are even more cost-conscious than before. These
companies outfit a majority of their installation/repair personnel with
OWLTrek OTDRs, and set aside a few high-end “expert” devices for

|FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS
|Automatic Event Location/Event Tables
|Automatic event location is an advanced feature normally found only in expensive, high-end OTDRs. The OWLTrek OTDR now brings this
feature to the entry-level OTDR market.
The OWLTrek OTDR includes an event table showing the location, type, reflectance level, and loss of each event. Users can select an event
to view, and automatically zoom in on the event on the OTDR display.
|Image enhanced for photographic effect
|Automatic Screen Rotation
|The OWLTrek OTDR may be pocket-sized, but the large 2.8” high-resolution color LCD display can show even the longest traces with ease.
And, for greater viewing flexibility and trace detail, OWL has implemented state-of-the-art MEMS technology which “flips” the high-
resolution color LCD display between portrait and landscape mode automatically. In landscape mode, a wider viewing area means greater
viewing detail when zooming in on events.

|"A knowledgeable fiber optics technician will never use an OTDR without a launch and/or a receive cable!"
Pulse Suppressors, commonly called Launch Cables, are used to occupy OTDR "Dead Zones" which enable accurate loss
measurements on near-end and far-end connections of the fiber under test. They basically allow the high power launch pulse a "settling
down" time prior to entering the fiber under test. Besides - you would not want to plug a bad connector into the top of your expensive
OTDR would you? Some OTDR's contain an internal launch cable. What would happen if you plugged a bad connector into the top of
your OTDR then. Results - SAME PROBLEM!
This compact suppressor/launch box/launch cable comes with your choice of connectors. Pigtails will exit the unit for easy connection
to both OTDR and fiber under test. When running an OTDR trace on multimode fiber the launch/receive cable should be at least 250
meters long. When running a trace on singlemode fiber the launch cable should be at about 1k in length."
There is a 7-10 day lead time on this item. Be sure to specify what connectors you require on each end. Standard connectors are, ST,
FC, LC, and SC. Give me a call at: 512-785-9024 or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let me help you.
