8000 Plastic Optical Fiber OTDR

High quality measurements in the shortest possible time

The 8000 OTDR has become the industry standard OTDR for manufacturers of standard silica-based single-mode and multimode fibers. It has attained this position because it is the only OTDR that was designed specifically for testing optical fiber and cables in the manufacturing environment. Now, the 8000's "performance first" optical design delivers unsurpassed optical performance for GI-POF fibers as well. Its high dynamic range and unique data acquisition capabilities significantly reduce the time associated with acquiring OTDR signatures and its analysis capabilities provide important measures of fiber quality.
