    Don't miss out, make sure you get this exciting new product the day it is released! On August 15th, the SideLighter™ will make testing more convenient than ever before!

    "I like the ability to use the SideLighter with the existing RF distance to fault measurement systems. This allows us instant familiarity and comfort while making optical measurments. Without the SideLighter, we would require special training so we could perform the measurements as we mainly deal with RF."

    -- US Army Field Engineer

    The SideLighter™, a fault locator developed by Artisan Laboratories, has many exciting applications in the military as well as for wireless tower companies because it can interface directly with popular RF cable measurement equipment to test fiber!

    This innovation eliminates the need for an expensive OTDR while providing a far superior level of accuracy (10 cm dead zone)!

    Question: What is the difference between a Core Alignment fusion splicer and a V-Groove splicer? How important is this difference?

    Core Alignment
    Core-to-core fusion splicers are designed to fuse singlemode, multimode, non-zero dispersion-shifted (NZ-DS), dispersion-shifted (DS), cutoff-shifted (CS), and erbium-doped fiber. These different types of fiber will have different dimensions, as well as other individual characteristics such as fiber quality or age. The benefits of a core alignment unit revolve around this flexibility. Since a core alignment unit is looking at the core of the fiber, differences or imperfections on the cladding of the fiber are of little consequence to the core alignment units.

    The fixed V-groove splicer is an economical choice that depends upon quality fiber for high-quality results. When a fixed V-groove splicer is used to estimate splice loss, it operates by assuming that the cladding of the fibers-not the cores-is aligned.

    If you are splicing older fiber, specialty fibers, or if your loss budget per splice is .02 dB or less, then a core alignment unit should be used.

    Answer To Last Month's OTDR TRACE CHALLENGE:

    b) Ghost
    Explanation: Dirty, poor or improperly mated connectors can produce relatively powerful reflections that are reflected back to the OTDR. These reflections are then sent back along the fiber, which in turn get reflected back to the OTDR again. The OTDR interprets these reflections as new events further down the fiber. Since the time interval is twice as long, ghosts occur evenly spaced starting at double the distance of the first real event.
