Optical Power Meter

Fiber Optic Power Meters

The optical power meter (OPM) is a device used to measure the power in an optical signal. Also called laser power meters, photometers, and radiometers, the optical power meter tests the average power in a run of fiber optic cable. This device consists of: a calibrated sensor, a display, and a measuring amplifier. The sensor includes a photodiode selected for a certain range of wavelengths at certain power levels. Optical power meters are calibrated using a traceable calibration standard such as a NIST standard.

A traditional optical power meter responds to a broad spectrum of light, however the calibration is wavelength dependent. This is not normally an issue, since the test wavelength is usually known, however it has a couple of drawbacks. Firstly, the user must set the meter to the correct test wavelength, and secondly if there are other spurious wavelengths present, then wrong readings will result.

The SMART Fiber - Fiber Optic Power Meter is suited for 850-1550 wavelengths and is compatible with FC, ST, and SC connectors. This optical power meter measure the power of light transmitted from a run of fiber cable. This unit includes an interchangeable adapter to connect to FC, ST, and SC type connectors. It works with both single and multimode fiber, is easy to use and portable.

Fiber Savvy also stocks the Fiber Identifier, another handy detector for measurement of the approximate core power and direction of travel of light in fiber optic cable. Its non-intrusive low insertion loss prevents alarms from being triggered at central offices (COs). It identifies fiber with tone detection and a clear indication of signal transmission detection. The Fiber Identifier supports all common fiber types and works with bend insensitive fiber.

At Fiber Savvy you can find everything you need to troubleshoot and certify runs of fiber optic cable. We supply all the necessary equipment at competitive prices. Make sure to invest in optical power meters you can depend on, and get the job done right the first time, every time. Thank you for visiting Fiber Savvy, we appreciate your business.
