Fiber Optic Test & Inspection Kits

Amphenol CIT offers complete testing kits with Amphenol CIT Fiber Optic Test Assemblies, Fiber Interface Cleaning Supplies and Test Instrumentation. We consult with you to build testing kits tailored to their application, and can offer fully self-contained testing kits with Insertion Loss Test Kits, Visual Inspection Video Scopes, Optical Time-Domain Reflectometers (OTDRs), Optical Backscatter Reflectometers (OBRs) and other test devices.

Amphenol CIT produces a full line of fiber optic test assemblies that can be used to connect fiber channels (DUTs) to test equipment interfaces. Often called Aerospace Measurement Quality Jumpers (AMQJs), Gold Cables or Reference Cables Amphenol CIT test assemblies are custom designed and built to interface with any device to be tested and offer very low insertion loss, precision finished connector end-faces along with durable and flexible cabling. Our test harnesses simulate interfacing equipment connections to provide the most accurate testing results and are built for precision testing in the lab, on the tarmac and anywhere in-between.

Amphenol CIT can provide test equipment appropriate to quantify fiber optic harness/installation performance and provide advanced diagnostic tools for fault detection and characterization in complex installations, or in scenarios where only one end of the channel is available for test interfacing.

On-site Technical Support Services

Things go wrong and things change. No matter how carefully products are engineered, tested and planned sooner or later it will be necessary to perform service or change a configuration for a product that is already outside of the factory. For the more complex integrated assemblies and kits produced by Amphenol CIT, skilled technicians are available to support field troubleshooting, conversion, and servicing when it becomes needed.  Contact us to find out more or to discuss options for your specific need.
