MAP Insertion Loss / Return Loss Meter

Supplier: JDSU T&M Australia

The mORL-A1 is a powerful, compact Insertion Loss and Return Loss meter for use with the JDSU advanced MAP-200 platform.


One, single-slot module contains up to 4 sources (1310, 1490, 1550, 1625 nm), integrated power meter and optional 2x2 optical switch for automated bidirectional testing.

Unlike the historically popular JDSU RX3000 meter, the mORL-A1 return loss measurement is based on time domain technology and is often referred to as “mandrel-free.” Mandrel-free technology dramatically reduces test time by relieving the users from making slow, difficult, manual terminations during both the set-up and execution of return loss measurements.

The mORL-A1 has been designed to exceed the measurement performance provided by our industry-standard RX3000 with 80 dB of return loss dynamic range, insertion loss display resolution of 0.001 dB, and measurement times as low as 6 s for two wavelengths. In addition, the mandrel-free technology also enables measuring the patch cord length.

The PCT (Passive Component and Connector Test) Application software provides user interfaces for both R&D and manufacturing and combines the mORL-A1 with all the necessary peripherals to speed and simplify workflow.
