OPTOTEST OP930-SM SM Insertion /Return Loss Meter

The OptoTest OP930-SM Insertion /Return Loss Meter measures IL and RL on fiber optical components fast and accurately. The return loss is measured with the "no mandrel" method, meaning neither matching gel nor mandrel wraps are required at the far end of the cable. The insertion loss is measured by utilizing the stable laser source of the return-loss in combination with the precision optical power meter. Features. Insertion Loss (IL) and Return Loss (RL) measurement on single mode fibers & cables. Fully automated, concurrent dual wavelength IL and RL. Displays both readings, IL and RL, at the same time. Mandrel free RL measurement, IEC/TIA approved RECM method. Approved to qualify all singlemode cables. USB Interface to custom applications or OPL_Pro, the comprehensive cable testing system. Various detector options, with interfaces to multifiber and multi-ferrule connectors. Specifications. Optical Power Meter; Measurement Range: +10 dBm to -80 dBm. Wavelength Range: 830 nm to 1700 nm (InGaAs Detector). Selectable Wavelength: 850/ 1310/ 1550/ 1625 nm. Measurement Resolution: 0.01 dBm (absolute), 0.001 dB(relative). Measurement Resolution (Display): 0.001 dBm/dB. Measurement Linearity, Relative Accuracy: 0.05 dB. Return Loss ; Source Wavelength: 1310 nm, 1550 nm or both. Measurement Range: 10 dB to 80 dB. Absolute Accuracy: 0. 5dB <72 dB. Resolution: 0.1 dB. Distance Range: 2.5 m to 2500 m. Source for Insertion Loss; Source Wavelength: 1310 nm +/- 20 nm, 1550 nm +/-20 nm. Output Power: -3 dBm (into SM). Power Stability: +/-0.05 dB (12hrs).


Standard Calibration $350.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the OPTOTEST OP930-SM. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Broadband Source (BBS)
A Broadband Source is a spectrally large source that emits a signal which contains a continuous range of frequencies with a broad optical bandwidth (usually 100 nm or more). Sometimes called a white light source, there are two different meanings of this term. Visible white light and a source which does not necessarily emit in the visible spectral region.

Coherence is the pattern and or relationships of waves due to phase properties.

Linearity is the relative difference between the displayed power ratio, Dx/D0, and the actual (true) power ratio Px/P0 caused by changing the displayed power level from the reference level, D0, to an arbitrary displayed level, Dx.

Power Flatness Over Modulation
When changing the wavelength and modulation frequency, and measuring the differences between actual and displayed power levels (in dB), the power flatness is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Singlemode fiber
Singlemode Fiber has a small core, only about 9 microns, and is used for telephony and CATV with laser sources at 1300 and 1550 nm. It can go very long distances at very high speeds. Both multimode and singlemode fiber have an outside diameter of 125 microns - about 5 thousandths of an inch - just slightly larger than a human hair.
