BR1 | Backreflection Meter

The BR1 Backreflection Meter is a user-friendly instrument developed with extremely stable optics for precise measurement of backreflection, insertion loss and power. The BR1 features up to four built-in laser sources at wavelengths of 850, 1300, 1310, 1490, 1550, 1625 or 1650 nm (depending on fiber type). Custom sources and fiber types available upon request.

The BR1 is capable of ultra-stable Insertion Loss (IL), Power, and Backreflection (BR) measurements. With a BR accuracy of ±0.4 dB and an IL accuracy of ± 0.03 dB, the BR1 is the perfect tool for reliable & accurate measurements.

The BR1 can be used with our free easy to use GMS software to help automate test configurations, data logging, and report generation for both short and long term testing needs. The multimode version of the BR1 complies with the Encircled Flux launch conditions outlined in IEC 61280-4-1 and TIA/EIA 526-14-B.
