Luna Technologies has launched a new addition to its optical backscatter
reflectometer product line. The OBR 4600 provides advanced diagnostics and inspection
capabilities to fiber optic manufacturers, developers and installers. Offering ultrahigh-resolution,
high-sensitivity measurements of optical fiber assemblies and networks up to 2 km
in length, the instrument provides measurement speed significantly higher than its
predecessor. It also features a new “spot scan” option, enabling users
to measure only a specific area of interest on the fiber. It can easily locate,
identify and troubleshoot macro-bends, couplers, splices, connectors and breaks.
Additional features include an automated pass/fail verification of fiber assemblies;
a monitor distributed temperature and strain profile along a network or fiber, or
inside a component or module; and it can look inside components to evaluate each
interface for RL and IL.
