JGR Optics announces today the release of the new RD-P Remote-head Polarity Detector. The RD-P integrates with JGR’s IL/RL measurement system to significantly reduce the testing time and cost of multifiber optical cable assemblies such as MPO and duplex LC.

The RD-P integrates with JGR’s RL1 Return Loss Meter and SX1 Optical switch, it’s never been faster to test your multifiber assemblies by going straight from polarity to IL/RL without disconnecting your device. JGR’s proprietary sliding detector adapters further facilitates the process and it is a significant improvement on the old method of using two switches to confirm polarity. This saves on cost and improves IL/RL accuracy.

The RD-P has a very small form factor and all tests can be performed with the free XN1 Cable Assembly Software. It is suitable for multifiber connectors such as MT and MTP/MPO up to 72 fibers, duplex LC, CS, SN and others.
