Launch Leads

  1. Launch Leads

    Optical Time Domain Reflectometers (OTDRs) suffer from the problem of giving errors if the cable under test is plugged directly into the machine. In order to overcome the problem a fibre optic launch lead is required of sufficient length to compensate for the errors. The OTDR Launch Lead provides the solution for both multimode and singlemode fibre measurements.


    • Up to three fibres with a maximum cumulative fibre length of 2,000 metres in any combination of singlemode and/or multimode fibre
    • Fibre lengths selectable in 100 metre increments
    • Ruggedised tails for field use
    • Choice of connector styles (ST, SC, FC, LC, MT-RJ)
    • The bare fibre spool is secured inside the box from which two ruggedised flying leads provide approximately 1 metre of connectivity.
