High Performance Interface SAVer Cables
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.
Most common interface saver cable is:
SAV-FA-FA-S with FC-APC on both ends
* Use APC when measuring return loss
|Return Loss (1310nm and 1550nm)||>55dB single mode
|>70dB single mode
|Radius of curvature||14mm to 25mm||8mm to 12mm|
|Fiber height||+/- 50nm|
|Fiber core position (eccentricity)||<0.6μm|
