Upon completion, fiber optic cable application projects will often require the documentation of test results that record the efficiency of the network. If done properly, testing fiber optic cable with reliable tools can yield significant savings in regard to time and money. We supply a variety of Fiber Testers to assist you in establishing a thriving fiber optic network that meets industry requirements.
Some Insight into Our Fiber Optic Tester Products
Estimate the length of a fiber run and overall attenuation rate with a Fiber OTDR Tester. These handy devices can locate faults, such as breaks in optical fiber runs up to several miles in length. This type of Fiber Tester has extensive computing power and an easy to read graphical display. OTDR test reports can also be saved in case of future fiber failures.
If you are troubleshooting a fiber network, Fiber Savvy also supplies Visual Fault Locators (VFLs) to diagnose problems quickly. The VFL emits a red beam that is passed through a run of fiber to locate faults. It can also be used to identify a single fiber optic cable within a bundle. Common application tests include detecting fiber breaks, detecting defective connectors, continuity checks, and finding loss inducing bends.
Fiber Testers with optical power meters are used to measure the power of a fiber optic signal. Fiber Savvy offers Optical Power Meters and light sources; typically, a calibrated sensor, a measuring amplifier, and a display are included. Power meters are calibrated using a traceable calibration standard, such as NIST standard. The display unit shows measured optical power and set wavelength.
The Overall Advantage
High-end Fiber Testers usually have the ability to certify fiber optic cable runs, ensuring that they comply with IEEE, TIA/EIA, or ISO/IEC standards. These Fiber Certifiers help verify that the fiber run is suitable for the intended application. Tier One Certification is generally performed with a power meter and light source. Tier Two Certification is completed with an OTDR to verify that losses are within acceptable tolerances.
