The inexpensive KI 9600A-H3B Shirt-Pocket Power Meter is a simple and reliable optical power meter for testing power and loss on high power fiber optic systems up to +24 dBm. It provides high accuracy and simplicity of use. An advanced netral density filter design offers improved accuracy for this type of instrument, and use of an InGaAs detector provides better accuracy and response flatness for DWDM systems up to 1650 nm.

  • 9 calibration λ, ±2% accuracy, ISO 17025 traceable 
  • Small size, easy to use, rugged & reliable
  • dBm / dB / linear, 0.01 dB resolution
  • Display hold & max/min recording
  • Tone detector with Multi-Fiber ID
  • Easy to use TamperLock mode
  • Interchangeable connectors
  • Full QA reports
