LOSSES TESTS

One of the most important tests to which fiber optic splice protectors are subjected are optical power loss measurements. The power loss is quantified with a quantity called the attenuation, which is expressed in dB. One of the methods of determining the attenuation is a measurement method called insertion. In this method, the test products are placed between the light transmitter and receiver. During the measurement, the optical power that reaches the receiver after passing through the tested fiber optic splice protectors is determined. In our laboratory, we use RX3 multichannel optical multimeters from JDS Uniphase for this purpose. The system allows us to simultaneously monitor 24 channels on 4 optical wavelengths: 1310, 1480, 1550 and 1625nm. The devices measure the relative and absolute optical power and reflected power.   

We use the system to test fiber optic splice protectors in accordance with the following requirements:
