Ultra-Stable 2W Loss Length ORL Tester KI23427OLF-InGaAs-APC
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 single mode fiber with an APC connector at triple 1310 / 1490 / 1550 nm. A pair of these compact instruments set new standards of productivity, accuracy and ease of use. The 650 nm VFL operates to give positive visual identification of a fiber to be connected for loss testing.
Each SM fiber needs just one test hook-up and one key press for a complete 2W / 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 ultra-stable light source & power meter, or tone generator / detector.
