New slide detector adapters made available from JGR Optics

Now available from JGR Optics is the new range of slide detector (SD) adapters.

The SD adapters are designed to allow for quick and easy testing of cable assemblies with different connectors on each end. The company says that the new design makes changing of adapters at least four times faster.

In addition, the adapters can mount to JGR’s re-developed integrating sphere that has a wider aperture (11mm) to accommodate Duplex LC assemblies. This increases testing speed because the ends connected to the detector do not need to be touched while testing the cable assembly.

The SD adapters have been developed with automation in mind, where even a robot can change the detector adapters with ease. The company looked at the growing demand for Duplex LCs, the many complex cable assemblies with a variety of connector types, and the future with automation. Existing JGR equipment can be upgraded to take advantage of the new design. Feedback was extremely positive from visitors to JGR’s booth at OFC 2019 in San Diego, where it was possible to see an automated test station with a robot.
