The OPM5 optical power meter may be used to measure optical power in Premises, Telco,
or Broadband fiber optic networks. When used with an LED or Laser light source, the
OPM5 also measures insertion loss of multimode or single-mode cables. The OPM5 offers
Wave ID, automatic wavelength identification and switching, when used with the OLS1Dual, OLS-Dual, or OLS4 with Wave ID feature. Multiple test Tone detection is provided for
fiber identification. The OPM5 stores optical references for each calibrated wavelength.
An easy to read Dual Wavelength LCD display with Backlight shows measured power
[dBm or µW] or insertion loss [dB], calibrated wavelengths, tone signal [Hz], wavelength
ID, and the battery charge status. Up to 500 records per wavelength of power or insertion
loss measurements may be stored in internal non-volatile memory. Using the supplied
Windows® compatible software and USB connection, test records may be transferred to
a PC for storage, display, printing, and analysis. In addition to being powered by two AA
alkaline, the OPM5 can be powered by optional AC adapter and/or rechargeable NiMH
battery pack. The OPM5 optical input port accepts Noyes thread-on style adapter caps.
Adapter caps are required for operation and must be ordered separately. The OPM5 is fully
N.I.S.T. traceable.
