An optical time-domain reflectometer or OTDR is an instrument that characterizes an optical fiber. There are two categories of an OTDR, namely bench-top and hand-held. Depending on the power source of the reflectometer, the two categories differ from one another. In a bench-top OTDR, the power source is direct AC, while in the case of hand-held OTDRs, the power comes from a sourced battery.
In fields related to fiber optics, splicing is a common term. Splicing means the process of joining two or more fibers into a unit. It is essential while you are installing a new fiber network or trying to expand the already existing network. If the splicing is not correct, there will be network disruptions. For this, choosing the right splicing machines to perform the task is important.
Power analyzer are electronic instruments that measures power consumption, loss, efficiency, etc. of electrical devices. It is a kind of testing instrument that is highly essential in the industries related to electrical devices and where the power usage is comparatively high. These can not only measure the power consumption but also the related variety of parameters associated with it.
An oscilloscope is a piece of equipment used in measuring electronic signals in an experiment. With the help of it, you can observe the varying graph of the signal voltages. It represents the data in a two-dimensional grid, helping the user understand the measurements.
An optical spectrum analyzer measures the quantity of the input optic signal against the frequency within the range of the instrument. For analyzing, it uses reflective or refractive techniques to differentiate the wavelength of light. The intensity of the light gets measured by an electro-optical detector,..
A Fiber cable blowing machine, also known as the fiber blowing machine, gets specially designed to fit the fiber optic cables into the telecommunication ducts or micro ducts. The fitting of the optic cable and the ducts happen with the help of compressed air or water.
