Fluke OTDR with non Fluke test cables

Fluke OTDR with non Fluke test cables

Fluke OTDR with non Fluke test cables

Hi Guys,

have you ever used Fluke OTDR Tester with testing leads that were not original from FLuke?

Testing kit is as follows:

500m 9/125μm G.657.A1 BendBright
Side A: SC/UPC, Side B: LC/UPC (This cable is usually delivered with FIONEX OTDR tester)

Now, if we start using this FIONEX Cable and start testing with FLUKE OTDR tester, what will happen?

I appreciate your help!

RE: Fluke OTDR with non Fluke test cables

It should not be an issue.

As long as the launch and tail-end test cables are of the proper design for the system being tested (i.e. Single Mode, Multi-Mode), and the OTDR is calibrated with the cables to be used for the test, you should not see any issues.
