Megladon’s HLC® Launch Test Cables are the ideal companion for OTDR testing, and are the highest performing launch cables available. They are manufactured using only the highest quality, precision components. We apply our patented HLC laser termination process to every connector, creating the best possible optical performance (IL/ORL). The extended durability of the HLC endfaces allows for uninterrupted testing over longer periods, allowing for reduced testing expense over time. HLC Launch Cables are available in all major glass core sizes and connector types (SC, LC, ST, FC), both UPC and APC, and we make a variety of lengths to support both premise and long haul testing applications.

Test Reference Cables

Test Reference Cables manufactured by Megladon are the highest-performing fiber optic cables available and are specifically designed to be the ideal cord for testing fiber optic connectors. Our team carefully selects all of the components, from precision-drilled ferrules to controlled core glass, to ensure the best possible performance from the assembly.

Fiber Optic Attenuators

Megladon Fiber Optic Attenuators are used in a variety of applications where a specified amount of attenuation is required. System performance is optimized by controlling the signal power through the introduction of attenuation. Megladon’s fixed attenuators provide highly-accurate attenuation values that translate into repeatable performance.

Pulse Suppression Boxes

The Pulse Suppression Box is a valuable addition to a fiber optic testing kit and is a durable replacement for spooled launch cable assemblies, which quickly wear out from field use. All Megladon Pulse Suppression Boxes come equipped with HLC SCRATCHGAURD® connectors for extended use, and are contained in watertight, crushproof boxes. Length and event characteristics are customizable.

Network Simulators
