The essential advantages of Light Injection and Detection (LID) Systems, which are a prerequisite to reliable low loss splicing technique and highly accurate loss measurement of single mode fibers, are transferred to multi-fiber/ribbon technology. In this paper we discuss in detail the main advantages of intelligent LID Systems and compare different techniques for the realization of fiber selective multi-fiber/ribbon LID Systems. The structure and technique of different systems are presented. Novel systems based on bend couplers have been developed and tested in the laboratory. Results of measurements are shown to illustrate the benefits of this technique.
