Autonomous system measures the smallest signal dropouts

With the OP1100 discontinuity analyser, LASER COMPONENTS has presented an autonomous test system for detecting and recording dropouts in optical data transmission. The OptoTest device detects signal fluctuations of 0.5dB and a duration of 0.8μs. Up to 24 single-mode or multi-mode fibres can be monitored simultaneously.

The events are recorded in a fast, high-resolution data logger. This allows experts to track the course of the dropout and draw conclusions about its cause.

In addition to round-the-clock monitoring of fibre optic networks, the OP1100 is also suitable for laboratory tests. Passive and active network components can be precisely checked for irregularities caused by temperature fluctuations, vibrations, and other shocks such as signal dropouts or temporary fluctuations in the output or transit signal.
