Timbercon, Inc., a leader in the development and manufacturing of fiber optic products and connectivity solutions, announced today a special fiber optic cable testing and inspection event at the OFC/NFOEC show in Anaheim, March 27 .
This service will provide show attendees the opportunity to get a standard fiber optic cable cleaned, tested, inspected and analyzed with accompanying hard copy inspection report of the cable, compliments of Timbercon.
For each cable provided, Timbercon will properly clean the cable assembly, perform an end face inspection with a Westover 400X scope to check for scratches, pits and contamination; conduct an interferometry analysis for radius, apex offset, fiber height, angle, key error and fiber roughness; capture insertion loss and return loss measurements. Upon completion, Timbercon will provide a hard copy report summary of the cable. The event is designed to offer a free, no obligation opportunity for users of fiber optic cables to receive professional cleaning, inspection, testing and analysis of their cable while enabling attendees to gain a better understanding of fiber cable testing, the differences in performance associated with various performance criteria, connectorization, polish and the importance of cleaning.
"Our goal with this event is to provide fiber optical cable assembly users an opportunity to look at one of their own cables and better understand the various attributes associated with its performance, and how those attributes can be optimized with quality cable preparation and manufacturing," commented John Lee, VP of sales and marketing for Timbercon. "This is a great opportunity to get free testing and independent analysis on a cable currently in use at your facility."
The free test and inspection event is open to all attendees of the OFC/NFOEC 2007 show. To participate, simply bring a standard fiber optic cable assembly to the Timbercon booth (#3207) during exhibit hours and ask a Timbercon representative, "How good is my cable?" Each event participant will receive an Armadillo loopback (single mode or multi mode) and be entered to win an Apple Ipod.
