DTS Test System 384x237


The Discontinuity Test System, DTS-100, provides a method for testing a broad variety of passive or active fiber optic components for susceptibility to discontinuities (signal dropouts, transient outputs or transmittance fluctuations) during application of an external stimulus such as temperature, vibration or physical shock.

DTS-100 allows you to capture short optical power interruptions and dropouts every 0.8 μs to 1 second. The free and easy to operate software logs all of the events into a spreadsheet for analysis in accordance with EIA/TIA-FOTP-32A.


•Optical component qualification and validation

•Stress and reliability testing

•Compliance testing such as EIA/TIA-FOTP-32A or similar

Single-mode and Multimode Compatible

The DTS-100 supports both single-mode and multimode applications. Depending on the fiber size and numerical aperture, the proper detector must be selected.

Input Power Range of -40 dBm to 0 dBm

The wide operating range of the DTS-100 allows it to be used with various source types. It can accommodate 1 mW single-mode lasers or lower power LED source options.

Selectable Dropout Detection Range

0.8 µs to 1 s

Selectable Loss Threshold as Low as 0.5 dB

In software, one can define the loss threshold from a range of 0.5 dB to as high as 10 dB of loss

Bundled HS-DISC Software Included

HS-DISC allows the user to configure the drop threshold and time base specifically for certain applications and testing. The software outputs discontinuity data into an Excel formatted report.

Universal Adapter Versions Available

The standard DTS-100 system comes with fixed adapter detectors, but universal detector adapter versions are available, when selecting 1 mm, 3 mm InGaAs, or 3 mm Silicon detectors.
