Download Video Transcript Bidirectional testing is an effective way to test connector-level return loss (RL) and throughput insertion loss (IL) for a variety of different DUTs. In this video, our CTO Chris Heisler walks through the process of referencing and performing a bidi test on a simplex DUT using OPL-CLX. Learn how this new software […]
OptoTest is proud to announce a new collaboration with Sumix to offer optical inspection and measurement products. The Sumix range of scopes and interferometers is an ideal complement to the fiber optic test equipment produced by OptoTest. Through this collaboration, OptoTest builds upon its commitment to provide customers with complete testing solutions.
Even the highest quality test equipment can only perform as well as the reference cables it is used with. It can be simple to overlook the importance of the cable quality relative to the major cost of the test equipment, but customers can find themselves spending countless hours troubleshooting issues only for low quality cables […]
MTP®/MPO cable assemblies are prevalent in fiber networks and their quantities are growing as parallel communication increases. These assemblies introduce unique testing challenges, whether it is a standard 12f MPO to 12f MPO assembly or one of the various different fanouts and fiber count configurations. In this presentation, learn more about equipment identification and setup, […]
