The Timbercon EZ2 and EZ3 electrical loopback array handles hold Timbercon QSFP+ and QSFP28 loopback modules used for testing and qualifying high speed optical transport and routing platforms.
Inserting and extracting large numbers of these modules in high port count elements is a time-consuming and arduous task for engineers and technicians. Timbercon now offers rugged glass-filled polymer handles designed to gang together 2 or 3 loopback modules. This allows the user to insert/extract multiple loopbacks at one time, greatly reducing the time needed to populate or depopulate the system.
The use of handles also reduces repetitive motion fatigue caused from tedious insertions and removals experienced by technicians. Test time can be reduced by as much as 65%, saving time and money… exponentially.
