Different measurement devices are used to test optical fibers. In addition to analyzers and power measurement devices, optical sources that can be readout with the help of monitors are also used.
The characterization of fiber optic components and connectors often requires either long-term tests, climatic chamber tests, or dropout tests.
Different types of power meters are available as bench-top devices and as rack mounts for use in the laboratory with InGaAs or Si detectors and for high-power applications.
Cost-effective solution with USB interface: For the measurement, monitoring, and data logging of insertion loss or power fluctuations.
