Launch Condition Overview


With the OptoTest OP752 Multichannel Modal Conditioner, you can quickly meet critical launch condition requirements like Encircled Flux, M80 or 70/70 fill for multichannel test setups.


The OP1021 Launch Condition Analyzer is a convenient and compact benchtop Nearfield and Farfield scanner for optical fibers.  Coupled with windows application OPL-LCA, the user can scan and easily plot both the Nearfield and Farfield patterns of any compatible fiber. In addition to comparing the Nearfield and Farfield patterns to standard launch templates, the Encircled Flux is calculated and compared to various IEC templates.


Meeting critical launch condition requirements is often difficult or overlooked. With the OptoTest Launch Condition Kit, it is easier than ever to meet specifications for many common launch conditions. The OP-LCKIT produces a controlled launch and can be specified for common connector types (FC, SC, LC, etc.) with UPC or APC polish, fiber size (50µm, 62.5µm, etc.), and to meet launch conditions such as Encircled Flux, M80, or 70/70 fill.
