Optical Time Domain Reflectometer
Optical Time Domain Reflectometer www.tektronix.com/otdr
The NetTek®OTDR simplifies installation
and maintenance testing of fiber optic
cabling. The NetTek OTDR provides a total
fiber optic I&M test package, combining
the NetTek platform with OTDR and power
meter modules that provide outstanding
performance and ease of use – all in a
rugged package. The NetTek OTDR can
help any user to achieve expert measure-
ment results.
The IntelliTracePlus
The NetTek OTDR modules use the
Tektronix-patented IntelliTrace Plus
technology. The IntelliTrace Plus function
automatically optimizes test parameters
so you don’t have to. It gives you the best
resolution on every section of the fiber
while maximizing dynamic range.
The NetTek OTDR provides:
IntelliTrace Plus multi-pulse width, single-
result auto test function to significantly
reduce dead zone effects on your tests.
See close events, including the first
connector, at the same time you see
events 200 km away
An easy-to-use interface, so even minimally
trained users get good results
All these features combine to give you
more information on your cables, with
precise accuracy.

Modular Flexibility
and Ease of Use
The NetTek®Analyzer platform provides more
flexibility for your optical test needs. The
NetTek platform accepts up to four modules
at once. You can mix and match modules to
suit your needs.
Eight OTDR modules are available for varying
applications. Current selections also include
two PCMCIA-based power meters.
The NetTek OTDR is easy to use with a
Windows touch-screen interface, automatic
test routines and preprogrammed measure-
ment thresholds to let even a novice user
achieve expert results. All this in a rugged
modular package.
The heart of the NetTek OTDR is the NetTek
Analyzer platform. The platform is a full
capability hand-held PC running Windows
CE. You get the power, flexibility, and ease
of use of Windows in a portable, durable
platform. This is an advanced field test plat-
form with the durability and intelligence you
need in a field tool.
Windows-based test applications are easy
to use in the field with a large color screen
featuring a simple to use touch-screen
The NetTek Analyzer can support up to four
application modules. These can be different
OTDRs or other optical or wireless test
modules. Check with your local Tektronix
representative or on the Tektronix web site
for the latest test capabilities for the NetTek
The platform comes configured with multiple
interfaces for your operation and documen-
tation needs, like printer, serial and keyboard
ports. In addition, it supports other interfaces
using the 2 PCMCIA ports. Plug-ins such as
LAN, modem, GPS and extra memory let you
configure the unit to your needs, including
supporting web-enabled applications.
The NetTek Analyzer is a true portable
field tool in a durable package that meets
Telcordia GR-196-CORE drop specifications
and operates in the rugged environment you
work in. It is small enough to take anywhere,
and on fully charged batteries it can operate
up to 8 hours.
The NetTek Analyzer platform contains the
support and flexibility you need to manage
your test and documentation needs.
Windows CE operating system and pre-
loaded, web-enabled standard applications
support your current and future needs.
Everything you need is on screen. Windows
interface and touch-screen means you truly
point (with your finger) and click.

Built-in Intelligence
The NetTek®OTDR makes your job easy.
Intelligence is built in so you can concentrate
on your communication system rather than
on your test equipment.
Application-specific modules make buying
the NetTek OTDR an intelligent decision.
Choose from a variety of modules ranging
from low cost/full performance all the way
up to ultra-long range with truly world-class
performance. Singlemode, multimode,
whatever you need.
NetTek’s IntelliTracePlus uses a unique,
patented multi-pulse width single test that
lets you see all of your fiber system. See
events at 10 meters at the same time you
see the end of the fiber 200 km away.
On some OTDRs it may take up to four tests
to see everything on your fiber. These OTDRs
are limited to the resolution and range of
one pulse width. This means you can look
at nearby patch panels and splices, or you
can look at the end of your fiber, but not at
both simultaneously. Who has time for four
tests on one fiber?
In addition, the NetTek OTDR uses wave-
shape analysis algorithms that can perform
an expert evaluation on the test, providing
more insight into your measurements.
Running these tests is easy. For single tests,
just push the OTDR Start Test button and
the IntelliTrace Plus function figures out the
rest. If you have lots of fibers to test, built-in
macros help automate your testing.
By taking advantage of NetTek’s built-in
You work more productively
You get better results
You need less test equipment training
YOPM Optical Power Meters
The YOPM, a PCMCIA-based Optical Power
Meter, supports all your optical power
measurement needs. It measures all common
telecommunication wavelengths from 850 nm
to 1625 nm. Easy saving of measurement
data makes this an ideal tool for documenting
Other data-storing power meters just let you
store and view one measurement at a time.
YOPM allows you to store and view tests
in a configurable table. You can enter your
system patch panel configuration so meas-
urements match the way your patch panel
is laid out, and not just as a list of numbers.
Tabular test results conform to your system
patch panel layout, simplifying testing
and analysis
Compatible with NetTek Analyzer platform
for more flexibility than any data-storing
power meter
PCMCIA-based meter leaves NetTek module
slots free for other test functions
NIST Traceable accuracy
Two product offerings handle all major
fiber wavelengths and power needs

NetTek®OTDR includes smart software and
hardware features to help automate the
test process, making your job easier.
The IntelliTracePlus function provides
a better test and lets you configure the
automatic operation to your needs.
