ARGUS® F200: The basic fiber tester
The ARGUS® F200 is a specialized selective power meter, designed for use in GPON and XGS-PON networks.

Modern design and new housing concept
With its robust and even more compact design than its predecessors, the ARGUS® F200 is ideally suited to the demands of daily field service use. The device is equipped with a user-friendly touchscreen and the familiar intuitive ARGUS® menu navigation. Thanks to the freely configurable favorites feature, the most frequently used functions can be accessed even more quickly.

Tests on mixed optical fiber accesses
The ARGUS® F200 supports measurements at three or optionally five wavelengths. The selective 5-fold powermeter can be switched into an existing PON connection in through mode, enabling the optical levels on the different downstream (OLT) and upstream (ONT) wavelengths for GPON, XGS-PON and a video overlay to be determined simultaneously and precisely using five separate filters. Other transmitters that may be on the line (so-called Alien-ONT) can be detected. In addition, the PON ID can be read from the PLOAM message. A PLOAM monitor scans all ONU IDs and serial numbers of connected ONTs on a PON branch.

Additional features
The ARGUS® F200 also features optional WLAN management and Bluetooth. In addition, the Fiber Inspection Tool can be connected via USB, which detects scratches and defects on optical fibers and displays them as a video image and in tabular form.
