Welcome to Fibre Optics CT

Test laboratory for cable


We run an independent laboratory for cable-testing on the basis of over 45 years' experience with cables and standards. We have our own testing facility, which is unique in that we can carry out on long cable lengths all the mechanical and environmental tests (static and dynamic tensile and temperature cycling tests etc,) required by the standards IEC/ DIN EN 60794-1-2. The tests are reproducible and correspond to real-life environmental and operational conditions, so that they provide clear, objective evidence of cable quality.

 

We make our extensive know-how available in the preparation of assessments and fault analyses, as well as in the optimisation of existing testing methods and the development of new methods for testing and sample-conditioning.

 

 

Qualification


Our aim is to improve cable quality in accordance with, or based on, DIN EN standards, so that cable installations become more reliable and have a longer service lifetime, while at the same time costs for financial penalties and maintenance are reduced. Within the framework of our product qualification system, we offer users and cable producers clear, objective evidence of cable quality. If the outcome is positive, a seal of quality is awarded.

 

 

Fiber Optic Training courses


We have been giving praxis-related seminars on the themes of optical cables, water detectors and sealing technology since 1995. In addition to the presentation of theoretical background and depending on the topic, the seminars include practical demonstrations of how to search for faults and install devices for fault detection.
