JGR Optics offers BR1 – Backreflection Meter

Sept. 10, 2020
Leveraging the same optics as the company’s BR5 model but with improved electronics, the BR1 features a dynamic range extended down to -85 dB. The BR1 also features attributes proven on JGR Optics’ RL1 – Automated Return Loss Meter.

JGR Optics Inc. is using this week’s CIOE event in Shenzhen to debut the BR1 – Backreflection Meter. Leveraging the same optics as the company’s BR5 model but with improved electronics, the BR1 features a dynamic range extended down to -85 dB. The BR1 also features attributes proven on JGR Optics’ RL1 – Automated Return Loss Meter, including a 5-inch touch screen and Ethernet/USB communication capabilities (see "JGR Optics’ RL1 – Automated Return Loss Meter reaches shipping stage").

The company positions the BR1 as a follow-on to the BR5. The instrument uses OCWR technology to provide a simple, reliable, and cost-effective tool for cable assembly testing, states JGR Optics. The BR1 is compatible with the company's GMS software for customized test automation. The BR1 also can be equipped to handle custom fiber core sizes such as 5-micron flexcore, 100- and 200-micron fiber as well as others. Customized sources are also available upon request.

“The BR5 has been the most trusted and reliable backreflection meter over the last 15 years. We are proud to continue the BR5 legacy through the BR1 with its revamped, modern, and intuitive user experience,” said Mark Berezny, senior product line manager at JGR Optics.

The BR1 will be on display at CIOE Sept 9-11 in Booth #6B23 alongside Senko Advanced Components.
