Adaptation of the application QUALIFO to communicate with the Photon Kinetics 8000 OTDR
Rights accessOpen Access
In this paper we present the adaptation of QUALIFO, a software designed to assure and control the quality of optic fiber cables, to a new OTDR model, concretely the Photon Kinetics 8000. While the communication with the rest of OTDRs is done through a National Instruments GPIB interface, this new model requires to be programmed with a Visual Basic script, and it is connected to QUALIFO via a simple local area network.
