Handheld Optical Power Meter Performs both Absolute and Relative Power Tests

Toronto, Canada – GAO Tek Inc. has announced the release of its handheld optical power meter which serves as a powerful tool in fiber optic installation and maintenance. This multi-functional meter is widely used in the test of LAN, WAN, CATV, metropolitan area network and other long-distance fiber networks.

This handheld optical power meter, model C0260008, efficiently performs both absolute power measurement and relative power measurement. It tests optical power at a wavelength range of 800 nm to 1700 nm. Calibrated wavelengths including 850, 1300, 1310, 1490, 1550, and 1625 nm are available. The power meter provides multi-wavelength precise measurements and conducts light identification and indication of 270 Hz, 330 Hz, 1 kHz and 2 kHz frequency. It can also be used for linearity and non-linearity testing and can display both direct and relative tests of optical power.

This portable optical power meter features an InGaAs detector, auto off function, and low voltage indication. It is compatible with standard adapters (FC, ST, SC, LC) for connection to diverse fiber ports. This easy-to-use meter is equipped with a large LCD display with backlight and is powered by 4 AA batteries for a long operating duration of approximately 150 h. Moreover, it has a durable construction and is a perfect choice for a wide range of field applications.

This handheld optical power meter belongs to GAO’s family of Power Meters. This line includes a many portable meters for absolute optical fiber power measurement as well as fiber optic loss related measurement. One such product is Fiber Optic Multimeter which performs closed-loop tests by using both optical power meter module and optical light source module. Another is Handheld Optical Power Multi Meter which utilizes internal microprocessor and linearity magnification technology for long term calibration and accurate test. Other featured products are also available such as Handheld Optical Power Meter which offers automatic wavelength identification and switching to intelligent backlight control.
