OP740 High Speed Multichannel Optical Power Meter

Customizable solution for high-speed optical power measurements and monitoring high-speed optical discontinuities

OP740 High Speed MultiChannel Optical Power Meter from OptoTest

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Download Product Datasheet

The OP740 is a multichannel, high-speed, optical power meter. Unlike other solutions, all channels are measured simultaneously. Up to 24 channels of data can be acquired at up to 125,000 readings per second. This is just 8 μs between samples. This surpasses the IEC 61300-3-28 standard* for measuring transient loss as well as the military standard 1678-2A for monitoring high-speed optical discontinuities.

The 2RU housing is both rack mountable and shallow enough for convenient benchtop use. The color touchscreen can control the unit and display the readings on one channel or all them simultaneously. PC software can also be used for instrument control, setting pass/fail limits, and monitoring readings.

*For full standards compliance, a stabilized light source such as the OptoTest OP715 or OP750 is recommended.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Full Color Configurable Touchscreen Display

An integrated front panel touchscreen summarizes measurement status at a glance and allows you to set color-coded pass/fail criteria. Monitor a single channel on up to 24 channels, or change test parameters, by simply touching the screen.

Software Driven High Speed Data Capture

The OP740 includes OPL-740 software for customizable high-speed data capture from one to 24 channels. The OPL-740 software allows for simultaneous monitoring of all 24 channels and performs automated IEC 61300-3-28 transient loss tests.

Unparalleled Variable Sample Rate

A maximum rate of 125,000 samples per second with an 8μs sampling period, from one to 24 detectors simultaneously, exceeds all requirements of the IEC 61300-3-28 standard.

Universal Adapter Interface

Our universal OPM adapter system readily accommodates industry standard connector types including FC, SC, LC, and ST, as well as universal adapters for 1.25mm and 2.5mm ferrules. The OP740 can also be built with electrical ports for remote head detectors.

Backward Compatibility

The OP740 is a plug-in upgrade for existing multichannel optical power meters, such as the OP710, in an existing OptoTest measurement system, and can be used with OptoTest software including OPL-Max, OPL-CLX, and the SDK via the USB port on the instrument.

Individual Power Meters for Maximum Flexibility

Up to 24 individual optical power meters can be built into each OP740, and are capable of measuring output power simultaneously. Our full range of InGaAs and Silicon detectors can be paired with any combination of connector types to readily accommodate any device under test, no matter the complexity.

Built-in USB 3.1 Communication for High Speed Data Capture of All Channels

A USB 3.1 interface seamlessly connects the OP740 to the OPL-740 software, enabling high speed data capture and transfer of all channels for reporting and analysis.
