The DZE® OTDR Launch Cable is designed to aid in the testing of fiber optic cable when using an OTDR to help minimize the effects of the OTDR's launch pulse on measurement uncertainty. Using a DZE® launch cable at the beginning of the fiber under test and a DZE® receive cable at the end of the fiber under test allows the ability to perform loss measurements on entire length of the fiber.

The unit measures only 8.7"x7.5"x3.9" and is available in any length up to 5000 meters with a choice of a variety of connectors in order to connect to virtually all OTDR and patch panel ports.
