TEMPO solutions for fibre testing in harsh environments
Fibres are commonly used for deployment in environments with high levels of electrical interference (EMI). To carry out installation and maintenance measurements requires test instruments that can operate in such environments. TEMPO’s range of test instruments have been engineered for use in areas with such high electrical interference, they have enhanced performance: MIL-STD-461E, Method RS103, tested up to 200V/M.
Thermoelectric coolers deliver precise spot-cooling
The new UltraTEC UTX Series thermoelectric cooler from Laird Thermal Systems delivers precise spot cooling to maintain peak performance of lasers and optoelectronics. Because of its solid-state operation, the UltraTEC UTX Series provides low maintenance and long-life operation.
