Autonomous System Measures the Smallest Signal Dropouts
With the OP1100 discontinuity analyzer, LASER COMPONENTS presents an autonomous test system for detecting and recording dropouts in optical data transmission.
The OptoTestdevice detects signal fluctuations of 0.5 dB and a duration of 0.8 μs. Up to 24 single-modeor multi-mode fibers can be monitored simultaneously.The events are recorded in a fast, high-resolution data logger. This allows experts to trackthe course of the dropout and draw conclusions about its cause.In addition to round-the-clock monitoring of fiber optic networks, the OP1100 is also suitablefor laboratory tests. Passive and active network components can be precisely checkedfor irregularities caused by temperature fluctuations, vibrations, and other shocks such assignal dropouts or temporary fluctuations in the output or transit signal.
