What is a Loss Test Set?
These instruments combine up to 6 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 test kit. All Kingfisher OLTS are colored red for easy work site identification, and they are inter-operable 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 OLTS can also be used as a tone generator for use with a clip-on identifier.
Note: Optical Loss Test Sets can alternatively be called: optical multimeters, fiber cable analyzers, or fiber cable certifiers.
