With single channel DUTs and reference cables, the issue may seem inconsequential. However, in the modern fiber production line every minute counts; any method that can speed up time per test, minimize the time between tests, and prevent downtime are ways to make your cables more profitable.
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.
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.
When a new OP-SPHR is shipped from OptoTest, it will require a few quick steps to make it ready to use. Following the instructions in this video will allow you to begin using the sphere in you production lines.
Remove the port plug from the back of the sphere using the provided hex wrench to loosen the two set-screws. Once both screws are loosened about 0.1”, the port plug should be easy to remove.
