OP940 Optical Return Loss Meter and Insertion Loss Meter
The Industry’s fastest & most accurate Optical Return Loss Meter
Making your fiber cable assemblies and products with the HIGHEST quality is faster, easier and more efficient with our OP940 Single Optical Channel Return Loss and Insertion Loss Tester. This tester is an extremely important component in R&D, labs or production manufacturing lines where your customers/end users demand the very highest performance from your products.
The OP940 is used around the globe in R&D, Labs, and cable production manufacturing. This single channel optical return loss meter comes in both desktop and 19″ rackmount sizes.
To test multi-channel fiber optic cable assemblies, pair it with our OP720 Optical Switch for 4-148 channel fiber cables.
Looking to test your fiber cables and products in both directions, add our OP725 Bi-Directional Switch for superfast 6 second tests of a simplex cable for two wavelengths in both directions (See it in action – video)..
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Robust and Intuitive Front Panel
The user experience through the front panel of the OP940 is simple and easy to navigate without sacrificing functionality. Test IL and RL simultaneously with results updating in real time. Adjust the RL reference position and measure both front and back connectors. Set pass/fail criteria and engage the colored display to quickly verify a batch of cables. If you’re ever unsure of what to do, help menus are accessible on every screen to guide you through the different features and options.
Identify and Fix Issues with Minimal Downtime
Minimize your production downtime by identifying and troubleshooting issues right through the front panel. Use the optical reflectance trace to find reflections along the optical path caused by dirt or misaligned connectors. If there is a reflection at the front panel, you can remove it to access the connector and perform maintenance without exposing the rest of the unit to the elements.
Wide Dynamic Range for RL Measurements
By making use of a wide dynamic range (SM, FTTX: -10dB to -80dB | MM: -10dB to -58dB) for RL measurements, the OP940 can adjust for attenuation in the reference setup, which results in the most accurate RL results in the industry.
Fastest IL/RL Measurement
Utilizing the OP940, you can test a single channel, dual wavelength, IL and RL in less than 4 seconds.
The OP940 is available with SM, MM, and FTTX wavelengths and a variety of core sizes and detector options to meet your needs.
