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).

*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.

Optical power referenced to 1 millimatt

Multimode Fiber
Multimode Fiber has a large core (almost always 62.5 microns - a micron is one one millionth of a meter - but sometimes 50 microns) and is used with LED sources at wavelengths of 850 and 1300 nm for short distance, lower speed networks like LANs. 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.

Power Repeatability
Power Repeatability is the random uncertainty in reproducing the power level after changing and re-setting the power level. The power repeatability is ± half the span (in dB) between the highest and lowest actual power. Note: - The long-term power repeatability can be obtained by taken the power repeatability and power stability into account.

Refractive Index
The refractive index or index of refraction of a substance is a measure of the speed of light in that substance. It is expressed as a ratio of the speed of light in vacuum relative to that in the considered medium. The velocity at which light travels in vacuum is a physical constant, and the fastest speed at which energy or information can be transferred. However, light travels slower through any given material, or medium, that is not vacuum.

Total insertion loss
A measure of the loss of light within an optical component
