CLEAN, INSPECT, CONNECT & TEST

Over 70% of network errors are caused by contaminated connectors. Contamination can be from dirt and debris on the end-face of the connector, or it can also be from scratches and defects during manufacturing and/or installation. Cleaning the connector is essential in either eliminating and/or reducing some of the known contamination that will effect and impair the network transmission.

Cleaning alone will not ensure a good connection which negatively impacts the signal quality. The connector endface must be inspected with a video inspection probe to identify the physical quality of the connector endface and the backplane connector through the mating sleeve prior to connection.

A fiber launch box is inserted between the OTDR and the Device Under Test (DUT) in order to characterize the quality of the"first connector". By not using a sufficient amount of fiber and/or fiber launch box after the OTDR, the "first connector" can fall into a "dead zone" that the OTDR cannot see therefore not have the ability to evaluate the quality of the connection.

The PRO-5350 Series OTDR is specially designed for tough outdoor jobs. IP65 protection level, lightweight, easy operation, TFT color touchscreen low-reflection LCD and more than 12 hours working period make it perfect in field testing. 

 

Precision Rated Optics, (PRO), has developed the following CLEAN, INSPECT, CONNECT & TEST solution for optimal network testing.

OBL-201A Optical Break Locator - Economical Fiber Testing
High-Performance Optical Break Locating
OBL-201A Optical Break Locator
The OBL-201A Optical Break Locator from Precision Rated Optics is an affordable and practical tool that every technician should have. While an OBL does not replace an OTDR, it allows a technician to quickly and easily find major faults and expedite repairs. 

The OBL-201A utilizes much of the same technology used in an OTDR, such as a graphical representation of the fault location, but at a much lower price point than an OTDR.
