The de-facto OTDR for Aircraft/Aerospace, Rail, Military, Maritime, Oil/Gas, FTTx/PON, Fibre Sensor Development and Smart Structure applications

Not to be confused with telecom OTDRs that locate fibre faults with around 1.5 metre accuracy, our Luciol OTDRs provide sub-centimetre accuracy - making them the de-facto OTDR for applications that require precise accuracy to reduce downtime and the inevitable associated costs.

Luciol OTDR Applications

Applications for Luciol OTDRs include FTTx/PON, fibre sensor development, production testing of fibre lasers, testing various short fibre assemblies, and in demanding applications like oil & gas where high resolution can be required at the end of a long undersea cable length to determine whether an issue is in the wet or dry section.

The LOR-220 is the highest resolution instrument of the LOR-200 family, well suited for short range fibre testing in aviation, and similar applications in military and other vehicles. With its 1ns optical pulse width, industry-leading resolution and 10cm dead-zone, it is optimised for short range fibre assembly testing.

A large variety of wavelength options is available, up to 4 different emitters can be integrated in a single module and the instruments can be supplied for single mode fibre or optimised for use with various multimode fibre types.

Two of the best known civil aircraft manufacturers use the Luciol LOR-220 to test on-board multimode fibres and have significantly reduced the time to identify, locate, and remove trouble-spots in their optical links – and are making significant savings as a direct consequence.

The highest resolution OTDR

The Luciol v-OTDR offers the highest resolution of all with its 500fs pulses and original photon counting technique. Not only is the Luciol v-OTDR the best at differentiating two closely spaced events on an optical fibre, it is also provides very precise length measurements.

The v-OTDR is available as a custom system for almost all types of optical fibres and wavelengths, including for example Plastic Optical Fibres (POFs) at 650 nm, large core glass fibres, and single mode fibre variants.

The high refresh rate of the instrument allows real-time monitoring of optical fibres. The Luciol OTDR connects to an external PC via its USB interface. User friendly software is provided.
