OptoTest has launched a range of Insertion Loss (IL) and Return Loss (RL) meters, which it claims is the fastest in the industry. The company says its OP960 meters are more than 30% quicker than its previous OP940 range.

The OP960 incorporates a new larger touchscreen with 35% more screen area and 70% more detail. IL and RL can be tested simultaneously with the results updating in real time, improving the overall user experience even when manually measuring simplex cables.

Built-in Ethernet capability makes the OP960 capable of distant remote operation when driven by OptoTest’s OPL-SDK software development kit, which enables users to create their own customised solution. There is also a standard USB interface for remote control from local computers.

“The OP960 is a completely new design with upgraded components and circuitry and a more rugged case that is able to withstand hard use in demanding production environments,” said Caroline Connolly, CEO of OptoTest. “We’ve maximized the OP960’s service life and dependability.”
