GAOTek OTDR-106 Launch Box



GAOTek OTDR-106 Launch Box with Compound Latch & Lock (Dust/Water Proof) is designed to aid in the testing of fiber optic cable when using an OTDR. This non­-metal construction will not dent, corrode, or conduct electricity. The OTDR Launch Box minimizes the effects of OTDR dead zone during fiber optic testing . It is often available on a small spool or within a “launch box”, which is used to create the proper conditions for testing another similar optical fiber for faults. This method avoids undesirable variations in loss and distance measurements. A launch fiber will migitate the dead zone distance brought about by high launch power or faults near the launch end of the fiber. This product is available in many different configurations and fiber lengths.

The box is most commonly used with the advantage of durability.It has a long spool of optical fiber with a pigtail on two ends. One of the pigtail is for input which is used to connect with the OTDR the other pigtail on the opposite end is for output which is used to connect with the optical fiber under test.After connecting the input end and output end to the corresponding port. This OTDR launch box can be used to test the attenuation of the fiber link.


  • Widely used with OTDR to help minimize measurement uncertainty indoor and outdoor
  • Tests the comprehensive performance of newly installed fiber links
  • Detect the problems in existing fiber link
