To accurately and repeatably measure insertion loss and return loss on fiber optic cables, one must have high quality reference cables and instrument interfaces that are clean and free of scratches.

The Optotest Interface SAVer Cables allow you to change reference cables on the fly without concern for damaging the front panel and avoid a very costly repolish or retermination on your equipment.
