Glass Fibre Decibel Meters

Glass fibre is absolutely ideal for the transmission of high volumes of information and is regarded as the ultimate medium for the high-speed networks of today and tomorrow. Without fibre optic cable, it would be simply impossible to handle the massive volume of data generated globally.

In order to be able to install these networks and cables, suitable measuring equipment is needed for glass fibre characterisation. It enables installation and maintenance personnel to measure both the optical performance and also the various forms of loss (insertion loss, return loss, component loss, etc.) in fibre optic systems. 

Phytron has developed a complete mechatronic system for its customers, which has two linear miniature stepper motor axes including customised control electronics and which supports the measurement equipment calibration process, sets the measurement range and protects the other equipment via a shutter mechanism.
