Renting fiber optic equipment is an attractive option to installers who require equipment for a particular installation project or a small, one-time job. To aid installation of fiber optic cabling solutions, we rent a variety of Corning Optical Communications equipment, including our state-of-the-art fusion splicers, optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs), attenuation test sets and other equipment.

  • Premium technology
  • Multi-layer support
  • State-of-the-art fusion splicers and OTDRs
  • Calibrated equipment on-time, every time
  • Advantages for renting: cost savings, capital preservation, no depreciation or outdated equipment

Optical Time Domain Reflectometers (OTDRs)

Corning Optical Communications OV-1000 V2 Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) provides testing flexibility by combining a rugged platform with field-interchangeable multimode, single-mode and advanced testing modules. Designed for testing and troubleshooting of LAN, Telco, CATV and FTTx networks, all OTDR modules can be used as continuous wave (CW) light sources. A video inspection probe, power meter and visual fault locator (VFL) are available as options on the mainframe.

Installation Tool Kits

UniCam® Pretium® Installation Kit 
Corning offers several tool kits for installation of UniCam® Connectors for data centers, fiber-to-the-desk applications and for local area networks, including main cross-connects, telecommunications rooms and enclosures.

UniCam® Connector Tool Kits

CamSplice™ Mechanical Splice Tool Kit
Corning CamSplice™ mechanical splice is recommended for indoor or outdoor through or branch splicing, transition splicing between listed and non -listed cables, pigtail splicing and is ideal for emergency restoration. Incorporating a unique fiber alignment mechanism that self -centers the fibers and provides accurate alignment, the CamSplice mechanical splice requires minimal training and few accessories to assemble. Average “blind” (non -tuned) splice loss is specified at 0.15 dB with a maximum loss less than 0.3 dB.

Test Sets

OTS-400 Series Optical Sources, Meters, Testers and Kits with Data Storage Capabilities
The Corning OTS-400 Series of intelligent and versatile optical meters, sources and testers offers simultaneous testing and storage of dual-wavelength attenuation measurements. At the press of a button, dual-wavelength measurements are made and stored for the fiber under test. These sources, meters and testers can be used during installation, system qualification and maintenance. The combination of practical features, simple operation, field performance and rugged design makes them perfect for virtually all fiber optic testing environments.


OTS-600 Series Optical Sources, Meters, Testers and Kits with Data Storage Capabilities
The Corning OTS-600 Series is ideal for optical network certification. The unit is designed for testing and troubleshooting of various telecommunication networks, with ease of use achieved using a large color LCD screen, soft-key menus and a testing wizard. While maintaining all the functionality expected from an optical tester, data entry and navigation have been simplified with a keypad similar to a cell phone. The OT-600 Series models provide source and meter in one unit to improve bi-directional testing productivity, and the auto wavelength switching and detection feature cuts typical testing time in half while reducing the potential for errors. The power meter has a range of +10 to -70 dBm with 40 calibrated wavelengths. An intuitive step-by-step loss testing wizard walks the user through calculating pass/fail criteria, referencing and setting the file name.

Test Jumper Kits
Corning Test Jumper Kits are designed to simplify link-loss testing by providing the necessary jumpers and adapters needed for the connector under test. Conveniently packaged in a small, rugged, yet light-weight carrying case, these kits are very compact. 

Test jumper kits consist of either two or three specially configured reference jumpers and adapters depending on the connector being tested.

Troubleshooting Tools 

VFL-350 Visual Fault Locator - A compact pen design fault locator used to check single-mode and multimode optical fiber cables and components for faults or to locate individual fibers in a bundle. By transmitting a bright beam of red light into a fiber, breaks or improper terminations can be seen as a glowing red light. This device fits all 2.5 mm connector ferrules and is ideal for field installation of UniCam® MT-RJ and LC Connectors containing the continuity test set (CTS) feature. There is an optional 1.25 mm adapter for the LC connectors. The VFL-350 operates on two AAA batteries and emits laser light of 635 nm (LASER Class 2 in accordance with IEC 825-2) with an output power less than 1mW. The robust and compact metal housing makes the device suitable for daily on-site use.
