Launch cable

Pulse suppressor is a fundamental tool for OTDR operation. Network construction and certification, field trouble shooting or installation analysis requires the use of a pulse suppressor or dead zone test box. It is also often used in laboratory experimentation.

  • Get information and detect possible defects of a fiber optic link.
  • Measuring with an OTDR an insertion loss at the nearest or far end of a fiber optic link requires a launch coil at both ends.
  • The launch coil connecting the OTDR to the network under test, reveals the insertion loss and reflectance of the near-end connection.
  • The receiving coil, to the far-end of the link, reveals the insertion loss and reflectance of the far-end connection.


  • OFP proposes standard launch coils from 100m to 2km in length.
  • Its new design has been specially developed to be resistant to drops, shocks and especially in aggressive environments that require highly durable material. It is a ruggedized case for harsh environment purpose.
  • In turn, the connection cables are reinforced to withstand repetitive crushing and avoid bending breaks. They are armed and flexible to be impact resistant.
  • Standard output cord lengths are 1.5 meters.
  • Manufactured in a very small size to be easier to handle and transport
  • It can be chosen with different types of connectors and polishing as well as both multimode and single mode optical fiber types.
  • All connectors have dust caps and unfallen strap.
