Santec’s BRH-100 Bidirectional Insertion and Return Loss Tester combines several essential fiber optic measurement tools in a rugged handheld package for fast and precise bi-directional Tier 1 certification and reporting of single-mode and multimode optical fibers. Its advanced features and automated test process eliminates setup, training, and measurement errors, maximizing productivity and accuracy when qualifying networks with multiple wavelengths and fiber types. Using a pair of BRH-100 instruments in autotest mode, two-way insertion loss can be displayed in real time at multiple wavelengths using one test hook up per fiber and a single press of a button.
Fiber length and optical return loss (ORL) measurement options are also available in the BRH-100, resulting in a powerful and comprehensive test solution for fiber optic administrators, installers, and technicians. An can also be used as a stand-alone optical light source or loss meter, allowing it to be used with Santec’s OPH-100 handheld optical power meters and SLH-100 handheld optical light sources. By looping together the light source and power meter ports, a single BRH-100 can be used in one-way autotest mode to perform loss testing for up to three wavelengths.
