Sticklers unveils CleanClicker cassette at BISCI Winter 2017

MicroCare will introduce the Cassette CleanClicker fibre-optic connector cleaner at the BICSI Winter Conference and Exhibition 2017 in Tampa, Florida, on 22–26 January. This new cassette cleaner is designed to be economic alternative to more expensive, trigger-operated cassette cleaners.

RMS-1 TruVue video scope sees connectors in more detail

Fibre-optic connector inspection can be enhanced with the RMS-1 TruVue fibre optic video scope, now available for Windows-7, Windows-8, and Windows-10 operating systems.

The RMS-1 uniquely records both still digital and motion video images. Images such as this are critical to identify that cleaning processes are being carried out correctly. The instrument can be used for field service, production lines, and as an essential tool for training applications.

Yokogawa Europe releases OTDR module for remote fibre test systems

The new AQ7277B from Yokogawa Europe is a high-performance optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) module for use with remote fibre-test systems (RFTS). Continuous monitoring of optical fibre lines using OTDR technology can speed up the identification and location of failures by detecting increased loss in the fibre line, and facilitates restorative maintenance.

Coherent Solutions unveils o2e module for transceiver testing

The o2e from Coherent Solutions is a DC-coupled amplified optical-to-electrical converter that brings optical signal measurement capability to real-time oscilloscopes. With 25GHz of analogue electrical bandwidth, it provides an optical front-end for testing high-speed multilevel intensity-modulated optical signals.

Anritsu introduces complete mobile fronthaul test solution

Building upon its capabilities in both wireless and wireline test equipment, Anritsu has developed a comprehensive test solution that helps mobile operators to ensure the proper installation and operation of the fronthaul component of their LTE networks.

Ideal Networks updates NaviTEK NT network testers

The NaviTEK NT Plus and Pro network testers from Ideal Networks are now faster and more user friendly, the company says, thanks to a number of time-saving updates that help technicians carry out network troubleshooting and maintenance on both copper and fibre cable even more efficiently.

Compact and handheld, NaviTEK NT network testers are designed to help technicians pinpoint and solve issues and offer fast detection of link and IP information, as well as the ability to detect services like ISDN, POTS and Power over Ethernet.

Coherent Solutions automates polarisation dependent testing

Coherent Solutions has added a new functional module to its MTP1000 modular test platform. The PolBlade is the new polarisation controller module that adds automatic polarisation control functionality to the test automation platform. Its addition allows users to achieve remote operation and automation of polarisation dependent testing from one MTP1000 mainframe.

The user can adjust three voltage settings of the PolBlade to control the polarisation, or it can be put into scrambling mode, which gives fast and even coverage of all states of polarisation.

EXFO introduces LTK-1 benchtop power meter

EXFO has launched the LTK-1, which combines the FTB-1750 power meter module in the new LTB-1 platform. Together, the kit delivers a low-cost, high-performance benchtop power meter aimed at lab and production environments.  

The FTB-1750 optical power meter delivers high-performance power measurements. The patented design of the FTB-1750 saves time, cuts costs and significantly enhances measurement throughput, the company claims. Its 85dB range and fast stabilisation time allow engineers and technicians to simultaneously measure high and low signals on up to four channels.
