OP940 – The measuring device for IL/RL measurements

Optotest Corp. was founded in 2002 by Richard Buerli. Former chief engineer at RIFOCS, he became known primarily for his work in pulsed measurement technology. He developed a technique for the measurement of RL that can be applied without having to wind up the fiber first. This was a major breakthrough in RL measurement considering how unpopular the winding of fibers is.

Optotest has a wide product range that includes the following benchtop units and racks in particular:

  • Measurement devices for the measurement of insertion loss and return loss in fiber-optic connectors and components
  • Laser and LED sources
  • Power meters with silicon and InGaAs detectors
  • Optical switches
  • MTP measuring devices
  • Software
