Launch fiber

/ Connectors & Terminations

IDIL Fibres Optiques provides launch fiber (spools) with single-mode (SMF) and multi-mode fibers (MMF). Different types and lengths are available both for SMF and MMF.

IDIL Fibres Optiques proposes three types of packaging:

  • Launch fiber case : robust & compact.
  • Launch fiber cover : very useful & compact
  • Launch fiber box (with or without pigtails) : robust & compact.

The cover of launch fiber can easily be put in the cover of a reflectometer.

The OTDR fiber enables easiest transportation of optical fibers that are used for testing applications for example.

Also named OTDR fiber, Launch Cable, Receive Cable or Fiber Ring, a Launch Fiber is used to identify faults in the total fiber length. How to use?

  • Connect the fiber between an OTDR and the fiber link under test. In this configuration, the loss of the near-end connection can be measured.
  • Connect the fiber to the far-end connector of your fiber link under test. In this configuration, the loss of the far-end connection can be measured.
