QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) announced today the release of the enhanced IQS-12001B Cable Assembly and Component Test System for production testing of cable assemblies and fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) components.

The success of the market-leading IQS-12001B has been predicated on being the only automated test system for component manufacturers to qualify cable assemblies and FTTx components production to the levels required by the most demanding network service providers.

The new and enhanced version of the IQS-12001B now offers the highest resolution to meet the latest FTTx market requirements for increasingly compact passive devices. Amongst its numerous applications, the IQS-12001B’s ability to precisely measure reflectance of very short passive optical network (PON) components like PON splitters with 1 meter pigtails ― and this for all four relevant wavelengths ― renders it the test system of choice for any component manufacturer wanting to address this market.

EXFO also delivers innovative improvements on its next-generation test system to further increase yields and efficiency on the production floor. New software tools, such as real-time monitoring and production history views, improve the quality of the finished good by providing a constant assessment of the manufacturing process.

The IQS-12001B Cable Assembly and Component Test System is fully compatible with the new IQS-600 and IQS-500 modular test platforms.

“Our IQS-12001B test system has long established itself as the industry standard for characterizing cable assemblies and FTTx components,” said Etienne Gagnon, EXFO’s Vice-President of Product Management and Marketing. “But we’re constantly reviewing our technological offering in order to remain on top of our customers’ emerging requirements. With its 1 m test capability and -75 dB reflectance measurement, the next-generation IQS-12001B responds to the most stringent requirements for the production of FTTx components and allows component manufacturers to meet their latest test challenges with peace of mind.”
