Fiber Test Reference Cords TRCs vs Patch Cords Fluke

If you are installing low loss connectors those connectors may have a loss of ≤ 0 15 dB So testing it with a connector that has a loss greater than 0 15 dB will yield a pessimistic result More importantly if your link is an engineered link operating to custom test limits you could be failing a perfectly good link Another advantage is consistent and predictable results something
