Optical Loss Test Sets
An Optical Loss Test Set is alternatively called an Optical Multimeter, Fiber cable Analyzer or Fiber Cable Certifier when used for Certifying Ethernet LAN systems. It is used to test attenuation and absolute power. Powerful & secure KITS™ Reporting Software makes these instruments ideal for use as Cable Certifiers.
These instruments combine up to 5 sources, a power meter & optional VFL in one unit. Two OLTS are usually used to measure losses on installed systems. Alternatively, some users may prefer either a higher performance two-way LTS, or a separate source and meter. All Kingfisher OLTS are colored red for easy work site identification, and they are interoperable with any other Kingfisher Autotest sources, meters or two-way testers with matching wavelengths.
For larger organizations, loss test sets can provide benefits in terms of simplified asset management, deployment and training, compared to sources & meters.
All Kingfisher less test sets offer superior measurement stability in practical link testing. When a test lead is repeatedly re-connected to the light source, the coupled power varies by < 0.1 dB. A Kingfisher LTS can also be used as a tone generator for use with a clip-on identifier.
