LAUNCH CABLES

The technician will use a launch cable on the input and output connectors of the fiber under test. This allows the technician to characterize the insertion and return loss of the input and output connectors of a fiber link. 

Using a launch cable at the beginning of the fiber under test will allow the technician to measure all events directly after the OTDR bulkhead during troubleshooting procedures to compensate for OTDR deadzones. 

Each launch cable is supplied in a soft carry case for convenient and safe storage.
