OTDR Launch Boxes

When an OTDR test device is used it sends a very strong light pulse through the fiber, which makes it difficult to detect fiber loss within in the first 1000 meters of a Single-Mode line and the first 150 meters of a Multi-Mode line. To counter this problem technicians usually use a fiber optic launch box which has at least 150 or 1000 meters of fiber foil, which acts as a buffer range that reduces the light pulse and allows faults and breaks to be detected from the very beginning of of a fiber optic line.
