Luna Introduces New Model Of Its Optical Backscatter Reflectometer™

Luna Innovations Incorporated (NASDAQ: LUNA) today introduced a new version of its Optical Backscatter Reflectometer™ that’s 200 times faster than competing solutions.

Luna’s OBR 5T-50, the latest in the company’s line of products for fiber-optic testing, is a fast, easy-to-use, low-cost precision instrument developed to meet market requirements for higher speed and simplified user interface for manufacturers, university labs and national research facilities.

The OBR 5T-50 reduces cost and complexity, while increasing throughput by measuring Insertion Loss (IL) and Return Loss (RL) distribution of passive optical components and modules such as optical cables, connectors, switches, couplers, and planar lightwave circuits.

Luna’s solution features 11.9-Hz acquisition and display over 8.5 meters with 20-micron spatial resolution for greater accuracy on every measurement. The OBR 5T-50 offers a streamlined and intuitive user interface that logs event location, RL and IL in real time and shows reflection events versus distance, also in real time.

“The OBR 5T-50 expands our product offerings in the fiber-optic testing market with an industry-leading combination of measurement, speed, range and accuracy,” said My Chung, Luna’s CEO. “This highly specialized equipment is designed to fulfill the market needs not met by our current OBR products, with higher speed and at a lower cost. It’s the latest example of Luna developing technology to meet the exacting needs of customers in a variety of settings.”
