FEBRUARY 17, 2009 -- OptoTest Corp. (search Lightwave for OptoTest) has released a new version of the OP930 FTTX units, measuring to -80 dB, for immediate release in production.
The OP930 FTTX, like the original OP930s, measures IL and RL. Additionally the OP930 FTTX features a quad wavelength source and single-channel power meter in one compact unit. This newest version now measures out to -80 dB. The OP930 features the same attributes of the original OP930, including stabilized laser sources, high-speed USB interface, OPL-Pro software for fully automated cable testing, and the ability to interface to custom applications via DLL.
The OP930 FTTX can be ordered with user-specific optical interfaces and variations on the optical power meter, such as larger detectors up to 10 mm, remote head power meters, and integration spheres, all that in a chassis measuring 8.5x3.5x12 inches (and is also available in a 19-inch option for rack-mount systems). The unit can be operated via the front-panel controls or automated over a USB interface by OptoTest's OPL-Pro turnkey application software.
According to OptoTest President Richard Buerli, "The fiber-optics industry is constantly expanding. Increasingly we have seen requests for units capable of measuring beyond the previous standard of 72 dB to now measure up to -80 dB. We improved our standard product in response to industry needs."
