AMS Technologies presents a new light source from Arden Photonics to test the insertion loss of communication components in aviation. These may be fiber optic connectors, splices, or other fiber-optic components that attenuate the signal being transmitted. The insertion loss always refers to a specific wavelength range.
The light source provides a stable optical output with an 85 / 85 "Modal Launch Condition" which, for example, is widely used by Airbus for the certification of optical fiber cabling. A certificate of compliance or a test certificate (850 and 1300 nm) with measurement details is optional.
