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.

Amplified Spontaneous Emission Source (ASE)
ASE, a process where spontaneously emitted radiation (luminescence) is amplified. In lasers and particularly in high-gain erbium-doped amplifiers, amplified spontaneous emission is usually an unwanted effect. It tends to limit the gain achievable in a single stage of a fiber optic amplifier to the order of 40–50 dB.

Dynamic Range
In a transmission system, the ratio of the overload level to the noise level of the system, usually expressed in dB. Ratio of the highest to lowest detectable signal of a system, expressed in dB.

Optical Power
Optical Power is usually measured in "dBm", or decibels referenced to one miliwatt of power. while loss is a relative reading, optical power is an absolute measurement, referenced to standards. You measure absolute power to test transmitters or receivers and relative power to test loss.

Relative Wavelength Accuracy
When randomly changing the wavelength and measuring the differences between the actual and displayed wavelengths, the relative wavelength accuracy is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Wavelength is a term for the color of light, usually expressed in nanometers (nm) or microns (m). In Fiber Optics the wavelenghts mostly used are in the infrared region where the light is invisible to the human eye.
