KI23403OLV-GE-APC-50U

A Two-Way Optical Loss Test set (OLTS) that's perfect for ultra high fiber count Tier 1 loss, length and optical return loss testing applications on multimode fiber at 850 / 1330nm. A pair of these compact instruments set new standards of productivity, accuracy and ease of use. The 650 nm VFL Visitester feature mixes a VFL in with the test signal during Autotest. In addition to operating as a typical VFL, it gives positive visual identification of a fiber to be connected for loss testing.

Each fiber needs just one test hook-up and one key press for a complete bidirectional loss length & ORL test, and the same test method can be used for all fibers in a network, eliminating administration, training and test errors. Testing is accurate and can take only 5 seconds, direct onto a final standards compliant certification report. 

A pair of instruments both display length & bi-directional loss, & ORL each end, in real time, with no need to specify master/slave instruments. A single instrument can also be used as a stand-alone light source & power meter, or tone generator / detector. The ORL meter is calibrated with 50 u fiber.

  • 25% of the size / weight, 7x the battery life of competitors 
  • Bidirectional Autotest loss testing on one fiber
  • Real time Pass / Fail display
  • KITS™ reporting software
  • Autotest power meter
  • 1 % power accuracy & 31 calibrated λ, ISO 17025 traceable
  • Full QA & test reports for source stability / λ, & power meter linearity
  • EF compliant multimode sources
