The OTDR Sidekick is a rugged, compact launch fiber module that pairs with any OTDR to eliminate the "dead zone" at the beginning of a fiber cable under test. Every Sidekick module is customized to specifications and ships rapidly from M2's facility in Raleigh NC USA.
To support a variety of preferences and application needs, in addition to the choice of multiple fiber types and specific lengths, Sidekick modules offer two fiber lead interface styles:
- Style A: Bulkhead interfaces (primary benefit: change leads and connectors as needed or when worn out)
- Style B: Pass-through interfaces (primary benefit: no extra interface connection/loss event with directly terminated spool)
