    Optical Fiber Connection and Measurement

    There are three main methods of connecting fiber optics, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. And different methods of connection have different precautions, so make sure you understand the characteristics of each method and choose the one that works best for you. This time, we will show you how to connect and measure optical fibers.

    How to Use an OTDR´╝č

    Optical fiber communication technology has developed rapidly in the last 20 years. Since optical fiber communication transmits a large amount of information at a fast speed, and it can transmits digital signals, which makes it possible to transmit information such as broadband image signals and computer networking. Thus, optical fiber measurement has entered into a new period of digitization.

    What is an OTDR and How Does It Work?

    The full name of OTDR is Optical Time Domain Reflectometer. An optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) is an optoelectronic instrument used to characterize an optical fiber. It is the optical equivalent of an electronic time domain reflectometer. OTDR is widely used in the maintenance and construction of optical cable lines, and can measure optical fiber length, optical fiber transmission attenuation, joint attenuation and fault location.
