Fiber launch leads for OTDR measurement

Fibernet's Futura launch fiber is a special fiber that is placed in front of a measurement section in an OTDR measurement. The fiber is essential for a standard-compliant measurement and fades out unwanted effects of the device on the measurement section. This is the only way to correctly measure the first and last connector of a link.


Configuration possible in various lengths and with all common fibre optic connectors


Ready for immediate use

Unique opening mechanism ensures rapid use


Armored cable ends

Special protection of the cable ends ensured, to avoid high damping due to damage.


    The ABS/aluminium housing provides optimum protection against dirt and mechanical damage
    Opens with a simple push-button mechanism
    Can be attached to racks, pipes or housings either by screw-on magnets or suspension loops
    The enclosed OTDR measurement protocol certifies the perfect quality of the fibres
