The OP415 is a polarity analyzer designed to test the fiber mapping and output quality of MPO cables.
In this video we will go through the process of testing insertion loss and return loss of an MTP cable in OPL-MAX. We will review both the cable and software setup for the standard test configuration, as well as the test process.
If, in the course of testing, an OptoTest unit begins to experience issues, please consult the below table for basic troubleshooting help. If after consulting the table the unit is still having issues, please contact OptoTest for further assistance. Problem Possible Cause Solution Unstable measurements Dirt and damage on endfaces Inspect all endfaces including any […]
In this video we will go through the process of testing insertion loss and return loss of a simplex cable in OPL-Max. This standard setup allows us to explore the features and functions of OPL-Max that operators are likely to encounter day to day.
Mode Field Diameter results and test report demonstration with OptoTest OPL-LCA Software.
The standardization of wide band multimode fiber leads to allocating a color designation similar to the OM2 orange or OM3/OM4 aqua. The widely accepted color within the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) has been lime green for the OM5 cable jacketing. However, it has been proposed that the connector for OM5 cabling should also be lime […]
An overview of Mode Field Diameter and its importance in the development and qualification of single mode fiber.
In this video we demonstrate how to test an APC to APC cable assembly using a Reference Reflector Cable. To reference Insertion Loss, connect the reference cable to the source port and detector and select “IL Ref” and then “Start IL Ref”.
