Argus 240 | The Optical xPON Tester - without xDSL!!!!

The new Argus 240 Optical xPON Tester scores with improved performance when testing on mixed fiber connections. The high-quality multifunction tester is ideally equipped for the expansion of future networks. The non-existent DSL hardware reduces the price.

Modern design with new housing concept

Its robust design combines the requirements of a compact handheld tester for daily outdoor use with a high level of operating convenience. The ARGUS® tester with touch display combines intuitive operation with familiar ARGUS menu navigation. With the help of many graphical elements, the newly designed GUI combines the complexity of a combination tester with the ease of use of a smartphone. An innovative internal help function assists in the safe and quick interpretation of the test results.

Tests on mixed fiber connections

The ARGUS 240 tests reliably on GPON and XGS-PON interfaces in the usual quality. It also has many other test functions, such as WLAN, speed tests, triple play and much more.

Additional test functions

Thanks to the integrated WIFI interface, the ARGUS 240 communicates independently with its environment - a PC connection is no longer required. Integrated into your order management system, the ARGUS 240 marks the beginning of the next generation of broadband testing at a clear price.
