In this video we look at the analysis of transient optical signals using the OP740.

First, we look at the performance of a mechanical switch as well as a MEMs switch. Then, we look at how the OP740 can be setup to monitor the insertion loss and return loss behavior of the optical

We are going to run through a full reference and test sequence with the OP940-CSW and OPL-CLX.

We’re going to start by connecting up our reference cable, which historically with the rack mount 12 or 24 channel OP940 would require a fanout cable. But now with this in the compact size, we just have a straight MTP/MPO connector on the inside here and we’re going to mate a 12 fiber MPO to MPO cable straight to the front panel.

Lift the flap here and just connect that right up. And we’ll leave it there for now while we launch CLX.
