Discontinuity Analyzer Measures The Smallest Dropouts


LASER COMPONENTS’ OP1100 discontinuity analyzer is described as an autonomous test system for detecting and recording dropouts in optical data transmissions. The OptoTest device detects signal fluctuations of 0.5 dB and at a duration of 0.8 µs. Up to 24 single-mode or multi-mode fibers can be monitored simultaneously.


The events are recorded in a high-resolution data logger. This allows users to track the course of the dropout and draw conclusions about its cause.

Hear the CEOs of Infosys & HPE discuss the current crisis and how it has accelerated the need for digital transformation for their clients. Connectivity at the Edge, right mix of hybrid cloud, ability to extract data faster than ever before… these are just some of the contributions that HPE and Infosys make to our clients’ digital transformation journey.


In addition to round-the-clock monitoring of fiber optic networks, the OP1100 is also suitable for laboratory tests. Passive and active network components can be accurately checked for irregularities caused by temperature fluctuations, vibrations, and other shocks such as signal dropouts or temporary fluctuations in the output or transit signal. For greater insights and revelations, consider perusing the OP1100 datasheet.
