The OTDR Sidekick launch fiber module is designed to provide field technicians with the most durable, compact solution that effectively pairs with any OTDR for eliminating the "dead zone" at the beginning of a fiber cable under test.  Also referred to as a pulse suppressor, launch cable, or fiber ring, every Sidekick module is customized to your exact specifications and ships quickly from M2's facility in Raleigh NC.

Additionally, Sidekick modules are available with two interface styles, depending on user preference:

  • Style A: Bulkhead interfaces (change leads and connectors as needed or when worn out)
  • Style B: Pass-through interfaces (directly terminated spool with 1m leads/connectors)

To specify your custom launch fiber, contact the M2 team or a local authorized partner today.
