Fibre Optic Launch Boxes


A fibre optic launch box, also called a dead zone eliminator, launch lead or pulse suppressor are long runs of fibre terminated at both ends with fibre optic connectors and protected inside a rugged protective carry case.

This can have many useful applications for the fibre optic technician :

 

  • OTDR Dead Zone Eliminator
  • Optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs) can give errors if the lead to be tested is plugged in directly. If a launch lead is is placed before it the OTDR can operate correctly and diagnose the fault.

  • Distance Simulation
  • As kilometers of fibre can be specified in a launch box they give the customer a test environment mirroring a true to life fibre installation.

  • Equipment Calibration
  • With the known fibre length equipment calibration can be performed.

  • Delay Line
  • The slight delay in the signal entering and exiting a long length of fibre is essential for some applications.
