Bidirectional IL/RL Test on a Duplex-LC Cable

Share This...

The OP940 and OP721 form the ideal test system for multichannel bidirectional insertion loss and return loss testing. The increased demand for more efficient IL and RL testing on multifiber cables, such as duplex LCs, MTP cables, and MTP fanout cables has led to an increased interest in this type of measurement. Additionally, this type of test is ideal for cables that require a two or three cable reference method, such as harsh environment connectors like 38999 and other Neutrik’s OpticalCON. In this video, we demonstrate how to perform this test on a duplex LC cable in OPL-Max.
