Choose an OTDR that Best Suits Your Needs

OTDR- also known as an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer. This piece of test equipment is used to determine the loss in a fiber optic cable. The biggest factor in optical fiber loss is reflection or attenuation. An OTDR test measures this backscattered light to assess the quality of the cable. It does this by sending a pulse of light down the fiber to determine what type of loss the cable has. As soon as a new cable is installed the OTDR should be used to create an image or “trace”. This OTDR trace gives you a picture of the cable. It shows the quality of the fiber by showing problems with things like splice loss. Should a problem arise with the cable in the future, a comparison with the original OTDR trace can be made. It is important that the operator of an OTDR be properly trained. Without proper training on an OTDR, results from a test can be misleading. As always, you should never do a trace without an OTDR launch box.
