Meeting critical launch condition requirements is often difficult or overlooked. With the OptoTest Launch Condition Kit, it is easier than ever to meet specifications for many common launch conditions. The OP-LCKIT produces a controlled launch and can be specified for common connector types (FC, SC, LC, etc.) with UPC or APC polish, fiber size (50µm, 62.5µm, etc.), and to meet launch conditions such as Encircled Flux, M80, or 70/70 fill.
