Optical power meters are commonly used to measure absolute light power in dBm. For dBm measurement of light transmission power, calibration of fibre optic power meters is essential. A fibre optic power meter is also used with an optical light source for measuring loss or relative power level in dB. Alternatively, some users may prefer an integrated two-way LTS
Warsash Scientific's wide range of dependable Fibre Tester kits provide optimised fibre optic test equipment kits for Telco, FTTx/FTTh, Utility, LAN, WAN, and industrial applications.
Typical test applications include single mode, multimode, PCS
The rugged padded kit cases have a custom moulded interior, which provides good instrument protection whilst also being light and comfortable to carry in the field.
A fibre optic source is commonly used with a meter to measure optical fibre attenuation or insertion loss. A handheld light source can also be used as a tone generator for use with a clip on identifier, or power meter test tone detector.
This range of optical sources are coloured yellow for easy identification, are compliant with IEC825 1 and 21CFR1040.10 Laser and LED
Laser source options are available for most optical fibre optic applications. The multimode LED sources feature improved repeatability and standards compliance and come with mandrel wraps to improve modal distribution. Also available in convenient Test Kits.KI2000 Press Release (84KB)
The Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) is a mid-level handheld tool for certifying and fault finding on fibre optic cable systems. In addition to the usual functions, it has a variety of enhanced capabilities such as automatic dual wavelength testing, file save to a USB flash drive, and advanced cursor placement.
An Optical Loss Test Set is used to test attenuation and absolute power level on transmission systems. It combines a source and meter in one unit. Two LTS
All LTSs from Kingfisher are coloured red for easy identification. These Autotest instruments are interoperable with any other Kingfisher Autotest instruments with matching wavelengths.
These LTSs offer superior measurement stability in practical use. When a test lead is repeatedly re-connected to the light source, the coupled power varies by < 0.1dB. An LTS can also be used as a tone generator for use with a clip-on identifier.
The KI 7700 series LTS (Loss Test Set) combines a source and meter in one handheld instrument. A pair of instruments are ideal for measuring optic cable loss, featuring a tone source facility for quick identification and continuity checking.
Variable optical attenuators are commonly used to reduce the absolute light power in a fibre. Typical test applications include linearity testing, receiver sensitivity/range/BER
In most cases, a VOA
Warsash Scientific offer an inexpensive in-line adjustable attenuator for occasional use, or a high performance instrument with excellent overall specifications, and automation features that are useful in either stand-alone or computer controlled situations. These attenuators are also available in convenient Fibre Optic Test Kits.Send Enquiry
Visual fault locators are used during installation and repair to find faults, check continuity, verify a signal path and identify a fibre. Tests all single mode, multimode and plastic fibres.
A clip on fibre identifier is used to identify traffic, or a test tone generated by a source, or as a route tracer.
The FiberSafe Microscope is the tool of choice for checking unmated fibre optic connectors for dirt and end face quality. A combination of high quality construction and numerous innovative and helpful features ensure that this equipment will enhance the performance of installation and maintenance staff.
This instrument overcomes the limitations of any mini OTDR
The KI 021 fibre optic talk set or "butt set" provides full duplex voice communication over a single optical fibre. An optical talk set is used during installation, commissioning and repair, in situations where other communications systems are inconvenient or unusable. The superb optical performance enables all applications to be solved with a single fibre optic talkset.
These instruments are sold in 1310/1550nm pairs
Based on an optical fibre SC
