- Power measurement
- Link-loss characterization
Key Features and Benefits
- Highly accurate unit offering 10 calibrated wavelengths and reference
- No offset nulling required, reducing measurement time
- Three-year warranty and recommended calibration interval, for dramatically
reduced cost of ownership
- Autonomy of over 300 hours
- Instrument identification available in six languages
The FPM-300 Power Meter is part of EXFO’s new line of handheld units, which
includes the FLS-300 Light Source and the FOT-300 Optical Loss Test Set.
The FLS-300 or FOT-300 units
can transmit with a wavelength-identification digital encrypted protocol,
enabling the FPM-300 Power Meter to automatically use the proper calibration
parameters. This feature reduces the need for communication between the two
technicians and decreases the potential for error.
Signal encrypting can also give the
receiving end information on the power to be used as reference, helping ensure
efficient referencing, even when the two units are far apart.
No Offset Nulling
Thanks to its unique design, the
FPM-300 Power Meter reduces measurement time in typical measurement situations,
as the need for an offset nulling is eliminated.
EXFO’s FPM-300 allows for the testing of
passive optical networks (PONs) at 1310 nm, 1490 nm and 1550 nm, the three
wavelengths recommended by the ITU-T (G.983.3) for PONs.
