Discontinuity meter

The 672R discontinuity meter tests the susceptibility of passive and active fiber-optic components to shock, vibration, and temperature changes. Calibrated at 850-, 1300-, and 1500-nm wavelengths, this modular instrument detects signal dropouts, transmittance fluctuations, and transient optical-power output in singlemode and multimode fiber-optic systems. The meter detects signal dropouts of 1- or 10-microsec duration at loss thresholds of -0.5, -1, and -3 dB in accordance with EIA-455 (FOTP-32), making it suitable for tasks in a laboratory or production environment. The unit is GBIP/IEEE-488-compliant and compatible with this company`s 600 Series rack-mount fiber-optic test systems.
