A larger and sharper touchscreen, built-in Ethernet capability, and upgraded cases and components make the OP960 the preferred choice for fiber optic cable manufacturers looking for a complete, simple, and accurate testing solution with a small footprint.

Faster Return Loss & Insertion Loss Testing Speeds
A measurement time of two seconds per channel, using the front panel in Dual Insertion Loss & Return Loss mode or via software, is over 30% faster than the previous industry leader, the OP940 Optical Return Loss Meters. Testing 24 fiber MPO using the OP960 in the same mode yields a 24 second savings compared to the OP940.

Simple and Touch-Free Return Loss Measurements
The OP960 Optical Return Loss Meter performs return loss measurements without mandrel wraps or index matching gel for quicker tests with fewer manual operations.

Bigger and Sharper Touchscreen
The OP960 touchscreen has 35% more area and 70% more pixels than the OP940 for improved ease of use. Simple front panel controls are easy to navigate without sacrificing functionality. IL and RL can be tested simultaneously with results updating in real time. Help menus are readily accessible on every screen to guide you through the features and options.

Built-in Ethernet Capability
Remote operation is now possible when you design a custom testing solution via OPL-SDK.

Upgraded Cases and Components
The OP960 is designed with durability in mind and housed in a new case that is sturdier than ever, making it possible to stack equipment on top. Improved components and circuitry increase reliability and extend service life long into the future.

Laser Classifications

All OP960 Insertion Loss and Return Loss Test Sets utilize a Class I Laser Source. Unless otherwise noted, all OP250, OP715, and OP750 source units with internal laser sources utilize a Class I Laser Source. Unless otherwise noted, all OP815 and OP850 Insertion Loss Test Sets with internal laser
sources utilize a Class I Laser source. All OP280 Visual Fault Finder units utilize a Class III Laser Source.

OptoTest strongly suggests that all necessary precautions be taken whenever any Class I or Class III laser source is used.

Specifications are subject to change, please confirm specific performance characteristics of the product at the time of ordering. All specifications are valid within temperature range of 18ºC to 24ºC unless otherwise noted. For additional specifications please contact OptoTest.
