Accelerate OTDR testing and reporting: Download pre-configured test setups and pass/fail limits for fast, easy troubleshooting or guided unidirectional or bidirectional testing of entire multi-fibre cables. Test results are automatically uploaded for cloud-based reporting using AFL’s aeRos Workflow Management software.
Simplify optical network troubleshooting: Avoid test setup errors using aeRos-configured test settings. Simplify results interpretation using LinkMap network display. Color-coded icons easily identify passing and failing network connections. Toggle between LinkMap and Trace view at the touch of an icon. Control and access from your mobile device: Download and install the free ROGUE LinkMap OTDR App to control and configure OTDR, source, power meter or VFL operation from your smartphone or tablet. View results directly on your mobile device and save or share as you wish.

ROGUE OTDR modules are available in both quad single-mode/multimode and dual single-mode configurations. Select the most appropriate ROGUE OTDR for your application needs:

  • RG-2100-Q01/Q02: Quad OTDRs for testing both single-mode and multimode networks.
  • RG-2100-S01/S02: Dual single-mode OTDRs for your single-mode only test applications.

OTDR modules include Visual Fault Locator (VFL) and are offered with optional integrated stable Optical Light Source (OLS) and Optical Power Meter (OPM).
ROGUE OTDR Kits are also available, combining OTDR module with ROGUE Carrier or Base and accessories.
