Measuring Units for Multi-Fiber Connectors

Measure the Insertion and Return Loss

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) With OptoTest's measurement systems it is possible to measure the insertion loss and return loss in assembled multi-fiber connectors and patch cables - like in MPO, MTP, and other connectors.

This application requires measurement techniques that offer optimized light coupling into the fibers to be measured. Only high-quality measuring units meet this condition and are in a position to incorporate different standards and excitation conditions such as, for example, the "encircled flux method." Both unidirectional and bidirectional measurement systems are available for this purpose.

These measuring units are made for assembly houses, but are also used for quality control and incoming inspections in data centers. For example, the MPO connector is used increasingly in such applications because they require higher and higher packing densities. The MTP lineup is available at LASER COMPONENTS.
