This certification test set is the complete solution necessary for the installer to certify, 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 designed for POF (plastic optical fiber) and short wavelength applications (visible and near infrared). The meter optimizes a Silicon detector suitable for large core fibers. It is the ideal tool for working with shorter wavelengths whether the system is glass, plastic or multimode fibers. The meter has an user selectable choice of 0,1 or 0,01 dB resolution, on board memory for 500 readings with date and time stamp, a serial port and an USB port for communication with a PC. In the internal memory of the meter 500 readings and results can be stored. The included PC software easily download and document the measurement results stored in the memory. The results can be printed directly in detail or as list from the software or can be saved in a spreadsheet file. 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. 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 optimized for POF (Plastic Optical Fiber) and larger core multimode applications. The sender has a 650 nm universal connector and a 850 nm ST, SC, FC connector.
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. This unit is easy to operate with only a wavelength/power switch, which selects optical wavelengths or disables the unit. The sender is delivered in a protective rubber boot.
