Launch box (fibrebox)


Our launch box is used to test optical fibre networks. Used in conjunction with a reflectometer, it helps eliminate dead zones when characterizing an optical link. The fibrebox is robust, compact and weatherproof, so it will work for many years even under adverse conditions.

The external cords can be adjusted to your specifications in terms of length, connectors and
protective jackets.
