Simple, compact, and low cost Ideal for optical connector production lines!
Benefits / Features
Measure the amount of optical connector return loss and insertion loss with just one machine
The devices required for measuring the amount or reflection attenuation and the amount of insertion loss are built in, so with one machine simultaneous measurement by 2 wavelengths* of both characteristics is possible. (*1310nm?1550nm)
Also, because it was designed with the needs of production line work in mind, there is absolutely no need for any complicated setup and measurements can be done with easy operation.
Functions for Sending Measurement Data to a PC
Can be used as a hand-push switch or a foot switch to match the production process.

Moreover, using a communication port, data acquisition, operation, etc. can be done by remote control, and the customer is also able to create custom software.
|Measurement Items||Return Loss Attenuation, Insertion Loss|

|Measureable Connectors||SC?FC?MU?LC?and APC connectors *1|
|Suitable Fiber||SM (9/125μm)|
|Measurement Range||~75 dB(RL)?~20 dB (IL)|
RL ±0.5dB (?60dB)?*2

*1: When measuring, the separate master cord corresponding to each connector is needed
*2: Using a straight PC polishing master cord and measuring within 1 min. after calibration
*3: With a room temperature of 25°C, using a master cord of the same type as the connector and measuring within 1 min. after calibration.
As this device is a measuring instrument using an optical branching coupler, it does not have spatial resolution. Therefore, in addition to the connection point of the master cord, measurements include the reflection in the subsequent optical transmission path, as well as reflection in the terminal part, etc.
