1100 Single Fiber Aligner

Fast, low loss temporary splices with no instrument feedback

Product Photo

The 1100 Single Fiber Aligner uses patented fiber alignment concepts to produce virtually instantaneous temporary couplings for OTDR, dispersion, or any other optical fiber or component test that requires a fiber-to-fiber connection. It delivers low loss, low reflectance couplings on the first try virtually every time, without the need for test instrument feedback. As a result, temporary coupling times are minimized and manufacturing costs are reduced without compromising product quality.
