An optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) is an electronic tester that is used to measure time and intensity of the light signals traveling down optical fiber cable used in fiber optic communication networks. OTDRs are essential tools in detecting and testing the slight optical loss experienced due to reflection from fusion splice, connector, or fiber break. SurplusEQ has a large stock of GN-NetTest CMA-4000, CMA-4000i, CMA-4500 and CMA-5000 OTDRs and batteries and batteries. NetTest was acquired by Anritsu Corp. Each OTDR is refurbished, and will then be calibrated by the factory-trained technicians at Legacy Fiberoptics (legacyfiberoptics.com) before being shipped to the customer, assuring the quality of each unit.

eFiberTools to Showcase the Inno IFS-10 fusion splicer at OFC/NFOEC 2012

Next week in Los Angeles visit booth #1541 at OFC/NFOEC, March 6-8 2012 to demo the new Inno IFS-10 core-alignment fusion splicer – “The Fujikura Killer”. eFiberTools.com, a leading provider of fiber optic splicing and testing tools and supplies for the telecom and broadband industry, will demonstrate the IFS-10 fusion splicer from Inno instrument at the OFC/NFOEC – 2012 conference in Los Angeles March 6-8, 2012. The demonstration at the OFC/NFOEC will focus on this and other advanced features of the IFS-10 fiber splicer, and ruggedness and resistance to dirt, water and the pounding of daily use. eFiberTools is the main distributor for Inno Instrument in the US and rest of North America, handles retail and wholesale distribution, and service and repairs for Inno. At the show, eFiberTools will be showing in amazing demonstration video of the IFS-10 in action and performing flawlessly while being subjected to dirt, water and excessive vibration while performing fusion splicers. It’s an impressive video and demonstrates the capabilities of this essential tool. The Inno IFS-10 fusion splicer promises to be a game-changer in the field of fusion splicers do to its outstanding splicing quality and that it is the only single fiber, core alignment fusion splicer in the US market priced under $10k truly comparable to the Fujikura FSM-60S which currently is the best-selling model. Plus, at only $9990 for the full kit, the Inno IFS-10 is priced 40% less than the FSM-60S. The IFS-10, which is Inno’s second generation fusion splicer, uses core-alignment technology called DACAS–Digital Analysis Core Alignment System and clearly offers the best value of any other brand. Since his introduction, the IFS-10 has been wildly popular with Inno making up 70% of fusion splicers sales in Korea, where it’s manufactured. A similar outcome is expected in the US market as the company and the splicer becomes better-known. “A Fujikura Killer!”? …At a recent London expo and unnamed Fujikura employee was reportedly overheard calling the Inno IFS-10 “A Fujikura Killer. As they have done in Korea Inno’s latest fusion splicer is well on the way to living up to that description. Sales have been exceptional, especially when considering that it’s only been available in the US for a few months. Companies like Fujikura and AFL Telecommunications unfairly gouge US customers by charging twice as much for the Fujikura FSM-60s fusion splicer. Don’t be victim!  Only Inno has priced their products fairly in the US market. See for yourself and make up your own mind. MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE!
