Fiber loopbacks can be used for a multitude of testing, diagnostics and measurement applications from single port testing to board, hub and system level testing. Ruggedized fiber loopbacks are designed and manufactured to provide a cost effective and easy to use method for a variety of testing, diagnostics and measurement applications, from single port testing to board, hub and system level testing.
Fiber loopbacks can also be called fiber loopback plugs, fiber loopback adapters, or fiber loopback cables. Typically used for test and measurement procedures in laboratory and manufacturing environments, the loopback is an ideal product for a multitude of applications requiring signal looping in a duplex SC or LC form factor. SC fiber optic loopback plug connector is compliant to IEC, TIA/EIA, NTT and JIS specifications. It is with one piece construction and pulls proof design. SC is low cost but high performance, which makes it one of the most popular cables. SC multimode fiber optic loopback modules are designed for testing, engineering and the burn-in stage of boards or other equipment. They provide system test engineers a simple but effective way of testing the transmission capability and receiver sensitivity of network equipment. One connector is plugged into the output port, while the other is plugged into the input port of the equipment.
Available in industry standard LC and SC (small form factor) styles, the ruggedized loopback features a full-seam ultrasonic weld for increased product durability and enclosed fiber shell for exposed fiber protection. The ruggedized SC multimode fiber optic loopback connector modules are improved style compared with traditional loopback cables, the new fiber loopback plug has the fibers hidden inside the outer enclosure to protect them, and the whole body is made of strong plastic with molded design, they are good performance and easy to use.
