Luna’s Optical Backscatter Reflectometer™ (OBR) delivers unprecedented inspection and diagnostic capabilities for the fiber optics industry. Luna’s state-of-the-art OBR provides isolation of faults and problems well before final test, saving hours in rework and hard dollars in yield loss. Industry-leading 10 micron spatial resolution with zero dead-zone will pinpoint even the smallest contributors to loss: bends, crimps, bad splices, you name it — we find it.
OBR is a polarization-diverse implementation of OFDR that dramatically improves sensitivity and resolution.
See what you’ve been missing with traditional optical instrumentation, such as OTDRs, in this white paper.
- High resolution OFDR – Resolve individual features with spatial resolution down to 10 microns.
- High sensitivity – 70 dB of dynamic range and -130 dB sensitivity.
- Long range – Measure up to 2000 meters in length with a single connection, single scan.
- Single Connection IL and RL – Measure insertion and return loss in a single scan.
- Locate loss events – Monitor backscatter levels to isolate losses due to bends, crimps, bad splices, etc.
- “Look inside” devices – High resolution and sensitivity enable inspection of individual components within a subsystem.
- Polarization Tracking – Track changes in the state-of-polarization as light propagates through an optical network.
- Intuitive graphical interface – All key data and graphs in a simple, easy to use interface.
- Distributed sensing – Use standard optical fiber to monitor the changes in temperature and strain
