Measurements for cable assemblies

With measurements for all copper and fiber optic assemblies in the EFB product portfolio, our customers can be sure that the products meet their specific requirements or the requirements of their customers. For this purpose, we offer various testing options in our own production facilities in Bielefeld and Sonneberg. From attenuation measurements to OTDR and interferometer measurements. A serial number on the measured cable allows a 100% traceability of the assembly. With this the customer has the proof to be able to install safely.

Suitable measuring variants for individual requirements

Attenuation measurement
Processing time for e.g. 200 pieces approx. 3-5 working days + picking time

Example for fiber optic attenuation measurement
Example for fiber optic attenuation measurement

A light/current pulse is emitted by a transmitter into the fiber optic / copper cables. It Is then reduced by attenuating elements and evaluated by a receiver (power meter) which recognizes the output power as a basis.

  • Measurement of the total attenuation of the complete line

OTDR measurement
Processing time for e.g. 200 pieces approx. 5 working days + picking time

Example for OTDR measurement
Example for OTDR measurement

A light pulse is emitted into the glass fiber, which is permanently backscattered. Based on the measurement curve, damping/reflecting events can be displayed:

  • Measurement of the total attenuation of the entire line or of individual sections
  • Determination of effects, such as damping, generated by connectors or splices
  • Reliable detection of the distance to faults, the end of the fiber or to elements integrated in the line (splices, connectors, etc.)

Interferometer measurement
Processing time for e.g. 200 pieces approx. 3 working days + picking time

Example for interferometer measurement
Example for interferometer measurement

A three-dimensional measurement of the connector geometry with subsequent evaluation relating to the respective standardization.

Measurement of the different connector types:

  • Increased attenuation is detected
  • Over- or undersanding of polish becomes visible
