Greenlee Communications has added the Micro OPM to its line of fiber-optic test and measurement instruments. The Micro OPM includes an optical power meter (OPM) and visual fault locator (VFL) in one unit for troubleshooting FTTx and point-to-point networks. The combination tool is designed to be compatible with both single-mode and multi-mode networks, including FTTh, LAN/WAN, telco and CATV.

"The Micro OPM is the perfect tool for every fiber technician. It does exactly what is needed, is intuitive and is accessible to all," said Oleg Fishel, director of product management for Greenlee.

The OPM measures the optical power and insertion loss of a fiber using an InGaAs detector calibrated at wavelengths from 850 nm to 1,625 nm and features tone detect at 270 Hz, 1 kHz and 2 kHz for measuring common wavelengths and identifying injected tones from compatible sources. The OPM is available in telco (+6 to -70 dBm) and MSO (+26 to -50 dBm) power ranges.

The VFL uses a 650 nm 1 mW laser to detect macro-bends, contaminated or faulty connectors and broken or damaged fibers. A white LED can be used to aid the technician while working in dimly lit locations.
