Simplex High Performance Reference Cables
Your fiber optic test equipment only performs as well as the cables used with it. For this reason, OptoTest is proud to offer reference cables to work alongside your test equipment and optimize your experience. For simplex applications, OptoTest offers high performance reference cables.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
In order to obtain accurate and repeatable results when measuring insertion loss and return loss, the reference cables used must be of impeccable quality. To ensure this, OptoTest cables are manufactured to exceed the FOTP171A (A2.2.1) standard.
HPR reference cables can be terminated with any of the standard simplex connectors (FC, SC, LC, etc.) and PC/UPC or APC polish. All connectors meet the standards requirements for the chosen connector and polish type.
Non-BIMMF Reference Cords
For multimode testing, non-BIMMF reference cables are crucial for maintaining the launch conditions needed to ensure accurate and repeatable measurements. For this reason, OptoTest reference cables for MM testing are made with bend sensitive fiber.
Hybrid Cables Available
Hybrid cables are available for applications that require that the source end have
a different connector than the reference end.
IDEAL FOR TEST
- Pass/fail thresholds leave minimal room for error.
- Measurement stability and repeatability are of utmost importance.
