Fiber Optic Test Set

Low-cost POF light source and optical power meter

A versatile and rugged fiber optic low-cost integrated test instrument specifically designed for use with plastic optical fiber. It features capabilities for:

  • Performing fiber continuity checks
  • Measuring fiber output power
  • Calibrating and screening detectors
  • Measuring LED power
  • Measuring fiber attenuation

The Fiber Optic Test Set uses a silicon photodetector to measure optical power, which is calibrated at the two most commonly used wavelengths in plastic fiber 660 (red) and 850 (infrared) nanometers. Optical power upon the photodetector is displayed in an easy-to-read 3-1/2 LCD display that can be set in four different power ranges: 20 W, 200 W, 2 mW and 20 mW. The test set includes a 660 nm LED for fiber attenuation measurements, activated by a separate switch with automatic turn-off circuitry to save battery life. The detector and LED are both housed in industry-standard ST™ female input connectors. The connectors permit measurements with any plastic fiber in an ST™ male connector or connector-less fiber with an outer diameter of 2.5 mm or less. This meter is inexpensive enough for classroom budgets, yet offers the range, features and durability required for industrial applications.
