Overview

A family of LED & Laser Light Source test instruments for general purpose loss testing of multimode & single mode systems. Typical applications include fiber optic attenuation measurement, VisiTest, polarity testing and fiber identification on critical systems.

The KI 2400 Series Zero Warm-up Light Source uses an advanced optical stabilization method which avoids the usual laser package-warm up and thermal power drift limitations, to offer ultra high stability, insensitivity to variations in ambient temperature or ORL, and zero warm up time. Typical applications include laboratory-precision loss testing, or in environments with a wide ambient temperature range.
