Continuous Wave Return Loss and Insertion Loss Meter
The OP925 is a compact test solution designed to meet the speed and efficiency needs of simplex patch cord testing. Built to measure insertion loss (IL), return loss (RL), and optical power on single mode and multimode patch cords, this system performs tests with the level of ease and accuracy that OptoTest is known for.
The intuitive design of the front panel makes it easy to perform these tests and obtain both relative (dB) and absolute (dBm) results. RL measurements are done through continuous wave reflectometry method (OCWR or CW), while IL measurements follow the standard continuous wave method. The easy-to-read display allows users to view the insertion loss and return loss measurements for both wavelengths, removing the need to toggle between multiple screens.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Compact (21.2cm x 10.2cm x 30.5cm) benchtop instrument for all-in-one operation
Full functionality via front panel display
High speed USB interface for remote control via OptoTest Software Development Kit
Single or dual wavelength measurement for IL and/or CW RL
Standalone OPM and Source modes
Efficiently tests all standard simplex connectors (FC, SC, LC, etc.), with angle and flat polish*
Supports testing of optical components with high reflectance and/or no throughput
Wide dynamic range for RL measurements (single mode – 0 to -80db | multimode – 0 to -58db)
* Some flat polish assemblies require use of termination stub/mandrel/etc.
The unit can also be controlled through USB with custom applications created using DLLs in the OptoTest Software Development Kit.
