Showing all Launch Fibre
This 250 micron, “launch” singlemode optical fibre x 1km long, is used with OTDR instruments to inspect and/or test or look for faults on a long fibre cable link, that could be 50 km long, or of a greater length. The launch fibre allows the OTDR to interrogate the complete fibre link length, from end to end, and allows fibre inspection/viewing from the first connector. The OTDR can pick up: splice losses; high point losses and typical fibre attenuation over the cables link length. The ends of the launch fibre are connected to A/LC and A/SC connectors, for ease of use. The 1km of launch fibre cones in a strong, foam lined box for transport, storage and handling.
