Work Smarter with the FTB-610
Equipped with SmartR technology, the FTB-610 enables technicians and engineers alike to work smarter—not harder. It is the next generation of telco cable testing that automatically identifies and locates common circuit faults and presents results using intuitive graphical displays and plain language. The PairDetective™ feature automatically runs the most common line tests and provides graphical, color-coded, plain language results and pass/fail indications to detect conditions, including shorts, grounds, opens, battery, splits and imbalances. FaultMapper™ provides the additional capability of identifying the location of the service-affecting line faults, including bridged taps, shorts, grounds and opens. EXFO’s unique SmartR draws an easy-to-understand graph of the wire pair, making copper troubleshooting easier than ever.
More Power, Extended Range
More reach means more revenue and more customers—and the FTB-610 has the power for insulation breakdown testing of the longest loops.
Wideband Noise Analysis
The FTB-610 enables noise testing at up to 30 MHz and accurately identifies wideband cable noise issues. Both narrowband and wideband tests provide visibility into service-affecting noise issues.The FTB-610 also offers an advanced impulse noise analysis feature that includes a time and frequency analysis scope mode for REIN, PEIN and SHINE, and impulses affecting DSL. And, its unique impulse duration and disruption histogram is the first field tool capable of capturing, categorizing and reporting impulses in a histogram. This makes it possible to understand the distribution of impulses based on their duration occurring at different periods of time, including cumulative disruption time caused by impulse noises.
FTTN Multitechnology Platform: Optical and Copper All-in-One
The FTB-1 Platform comes with optional built-in optical test tools, including a power meter and visual fault locator. When combined with the FTB-610 module, it creates the perfect platform for hybrid and FTTN networks. With interfaces and tests for wideband copper circuits, fiber-optic links, Ethernet and Wi-Fi, it’s the perfect tool to maintain FTTN circuits and services—all with one technician.

All the Right Features
Ease of Use
The next-generation interface of the FTB-610 is more like modern tablets than your previous field testers. The large seven-inch color touchscreen display makes use of colored icons and graphics for easy configuration and operation to present findings in plain language, for an enjoyable user experience.
Customizable Automatic Testing
Besides SmartR™ automatic analysis, users and managers can customize their FTB-610 to create custom tests and pass/fail indications for repeated troubleshooting or closeout testing. Work smarter, and just the way you like.
Results Capture and Connectivity
In today’s highly competitive market, quality of service is paramount for service providers. The FTB-610 allows test reports to be uploaded in a variety of formats. Therefore, service providers can keep all the results on file for future reference and confirm that the required tests have been completed by the technician. The USB connectors accept memory sticks, mouse, keyboard and other approved accessories. What’s more, the FTB-610 enables connectivity through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth as well as optional mobile WAN adapters, plus third-part applications.
Battery Power Options
The FTB-610 can be fitted with a normal- or high-capacity modern technology battery to meet your needs, using the latest technology in rechargeable cells. It provides the maximum testing time between charges, even when using the high power demands of VDSL2. When charging is required, technicians can either use the optional 12 volt vehicle charger or the supplied AC adapter.
The features of the FTB-610 Advances Wideband Copper Tester include: color touch-screen multimeter, POTS, locator, VF transmitter/receiver, power influence with harmonics, VF noise, loadcoils, balance, spare pair locator, series resistance detection, TDR, RFL (2/4 wire and K-Test),, SmartR™ Pair Detective and Fault Mapper, wideband signal transmitter/receiver, wideband noise, time and frequency impulse scope, single-ended attenuation, pre-defined and flexible auto tests.
