OTDR Fibre Rings

AFL  Test & Inspection Fibre Rings are compact launch/receive cables designed to measure the insertion loss of the near-end and/or far-end connection of a fibre optic link using an OTDR. Both a launch and receive cable are required to measure complete link loss of a fibre with an OTDR.

Fujikura Europe is the authorised distributor for AFL Test & Measurement products in the UK. In addition, Fujikura Europe is the approved calibration & repair centre for AFL  Test & Inspection products in Europe.

Read full description

 

A launch cable, which connects the OTDR to the link under test, reveals the insertion loss and reflectance of the near-end connection. A receive cable, which connects to the far-end of the link, reveals the insertion loss and reflectance of the far-end connection. Launch and receive test cables can range from 150 m to 1 km (or longer) in length.

Long lengths of test cables are impractical to transport and use, therefore AFL  Test & Inspection designed coiled lengths of 50 µm multimode, 62.5 µm multimode, or single-mode fibre which are conveniently packaged in compact rings.

  • AFL  Test & Inspection Fibre Rings with150 m of fibre are ideal for premises fibre network test applications. Fibre Rings with 500 m or 1 km of single-mode fibre are designed for broadband, long-haul fibre network test applications.
  • AFL  Test & Inspection Fibre Rings' are compact and fit easily in many OTDR carry cases and test kits.
  • AFL  Test & Inspection Fibre Rings are available from Fujikura in a variety of standard angled and non-angled connector styles including SC, ST, LC, and FC.
