Ottawa, Ontario, September 13, 2012 – JGR Optics Inc. announced today that its BR5 Backreflection Meter, MBR5 Multi-Output Backreflection Meter, SX4 Benchtop and SX8 Rackmount Optical Switches are now all fully compatible with HI1060 5/125 μm Flexcore fiber.
With this addition, BR5 and MBR5 Backreflection Meters will precisely and accurately measure IL and RL of components and cable assemblies made of HI1060 Flexcore fiber. Automated test systems can also be implemented with the addition of the new HI1060 compatible SX4 or SX8 optical switches.
"With the continuous pressure on telecom manufacturers to reduce their component and EDFA footprint, the use of HI1060 bend insensitive fiber is becoming more and more popular. Manufacturers can now benefit from the proven accuracy and reliability of JGR instruments to provide high quality components and assemblies to their customers," said Pierre Leonard, President and CEO of JGR Optics.
JGR Optics instruments will be demonstrated at ECOC in Amsterdam, September 17 to 19 (Booth # 670).
