INDIANAPOLIS, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Trilithic, a leader in broadband test and measurement solutions today unveiled its new TFS-2000™ Series of Optical Time Domain Reflectometers (OTDRs).  Designed for everyday use in the field on a wide variety of networks, the TFS-2000™ Series combine a video scope, insertion loss test set and visible light source in one small, handheld unit. Priced very competitively, they are the only OTDRs in their price range with all-in-one capability.

"Years ago, Trilithic made a commitment to develop forward-thinking, competitively priced solutions for the market," said Terry Bush, President of Trilithic, Inc. "The TFS-2000™ Series is an outgrowth of that commitment, bringing multiple capabilities together in one rugged package that will make field testing more productive, efficient and cost-effective."

The TFS-2000™ Series OTDRs offer nearly instantaneous boot up time, an optional video scope for inspecting fiber connections and a 2 meter event dead zone that provides resolution typically found in much higher priced OTDRs. Built-in light source and power meter eliminate the need for separately maintained and operated meters while replaceable NiMh batteries reduce the cost of ownership. Trace or tabular results presentation enables user settable thresholds for pass/fail, for ease of use in the field. In addition, the products' PC-based companion software affords greater trace storage and more thorough analysis of results.

Featuring speed, wide dynamic range, an easy to read color display, a rugged package and short dead zone, these light weight, easy-to-use OTDRs are ideal for novice field technicians and seasoned veterans. Used in conjunction with Trilithic's TFS-301™ power meter and TFS-201™ light source, users can easily perform insertion loss tests and do fast, easy trace analysis and reporting with the supplied software.

TFS-2000™ Series OTDRs are available in dual single mode, dual multimode and quad wavelength configurations: TFS-2225 - Dual wavelength (850/1300 nm); TFS-2250 - Dual wavelength (1310/1550 nm); and TFS-2500 - Quad Wavelength (850/1300/1310/1550 nm).
