This test set is the complete solution necessary for the installer to test, terminate, trouble shoot and document fiber optic systems. The test set is designed to allow testing of all parameters of fiber optic networks, including output power levels from the fiber, coupled source power and attenuation loss in a fiber. The test set includes the following products:
The meter is a general-purpose power meter suitable for a both premise and outside plant applications. The meter is suitable for both single-mode and multimode applications, depending on the source which is used.The meter measures optical power, loss (attenuation) and optical return loss. The meter is calibrated at industry standard wavelengths (NIST traceable). The zero reference function is ideal for testing fiber optic cables in dB, the reference value is saved in the power meter. Sensor size 1mm. A universal 2,5 mm universal adapter with a threaded housing is included, other adapters are also available as an accessory. Due to the backlight the data is always visible. The meter is delivered in a protective rubber boot.
The sender is for premises and campus cabling networks with multimode fiber or for single-mode fibers up to 5 km at 1300 nm. The connector output can be adapted to any cable plant with hybrid adapters or hybrid cables. This unit is easy to operate with only a wavelength/power switch, which selects optical wavelengths or disables the unit. The light source is designed for performing insertion loss measurements on fiber optic links when used with an optical power meter. Whether testing outside plant or premise an optical source is the perfect tool when combined with an optical power meter. The output is stabilized to ensure accurate test results per current TIA/EIA requirements. The wavelengths are individually adjustable with a mechanical screw to have a variable attenuator or to reduce the output power. This make it able to save battery power when high optical output power is not necessary, or to turn up the power to test long runs. The sender is delivered in a protective rubber boot.
