Overview

A simple and reliable optical power meter for testing power and loss on typical multimode & single mode fiber optic systems. It provides high accuracy and simplicity of use. Kingfisher's innovative & unique VE detector sets a new industry accuracy standard. It has our typical InGaAs accuracy for single mode fiber, plus 3x better practical absolute accuracy at 850 nm for multimode users, because of greatly improved wavelength sensitivity across the 850 nm band. 

  • 10 calibration λ, ±2% accuracy, ISO/IEC 17025 traceable 
  • Small size, easy to use, rugged & reliable
  • dBm / dB / linear, 0.01 dB resolution
  • Display hold & max/min recording
  • Tone detector with Multi-Fiber ID
  • Easy to use TamperLock mode
  • Interchangeable optical connectors
  • Full QA reports
