KIT-FO4B-WS-VSDxx – OWL 4 BOLT/WaveSource SM Auto-test kit with VFL

Optical Wavelength Laboratories (OWL)
Compare

The Fiber OWL 4 BOLT / WaveSource SM VFL Test Kit contains the tools necessary for certifying fiber optic links against a myriad of popular cabling standards in singlemode networks.

The Fiber OWL 4 BOLT optical power meter is multimode and singlemode ready, and contains a user-friendly Fiber Link Wizard that performs link budget calculation (including integrated fiber link length testing), and sets a reference value using the characteristics of the link. This reference is the PASS/FAIL threshold and is calculated against the chosen standard. Up to 1000 fiber runs may be stored, then downloaded to a PC for report generation using our OWL Reporter software.

It also includes intelligent automated testing functions, such as automatic dual-wavelength storage and auto-wavelength recognition, which reduce testing time and human error.

Description

Overview

Many fiber optic network bids and Requests For Quote (RFQ) are citing cabling standards to specify the set of guidelines (such as fiber length) that the network installer must follow during the network installation. Adherence to such standards is meant to ensure the quality of the installation and guarantee that the network will perform as it was designed.

The process of testing a network installation to ensure its adherence to specified standards is called certification, and often requires hard-copy documentation as proof of adherence to standards.

The WaveSource SM VFL fiber optic laser source is designed for accurate testing and certification of singlemode (1310nm & 1550nm) networks. Its dual-wavelength output is temperature-stabilized for accurate measurements, and the integrated VFL is used for quick visual fault location.

The WaveSource SM VFL has a built-in auto-wavelength switching protocol designed to synchronize the wavelength of the Fiber OWL 4 BOLT with the current output wavelength.

Three connector options are available (ST, SC, and FC).

Features

Certification of singlemode fiber links at 1310nm and 1550nm
