A fully-featured hand held optical power meter used for testing fiber optic communications sytems.

Superior measurement confidence is achieved through a combination of excellent basic accuracy, intuitive use and rugged reliability.

Opions cover power levels from +33 to -70dBm, all useful wavelengths, many connector styles including duplex/ribbon and large core POF fiber.

The KI 2600 Hand Held Fiber Meter measures absolute or relative light levels and test tones in fiber optic systems.

Autotest provides fast, easy and automatic multi λ(wavelength) loss testing. Up to 3λ are displayed simultaneously, along with the source nominal power level and λ. Any Kingfisher Autotest light source/LTS with matching λ can be used.

The meter displays mW, μW, nW, dB, dBm to 0.01 dB resolution, with no range changing delays. A separate reference for each λ is stored and displayed. Superior high power performance is achieved.

The tight Total Uncertainty specification covers all power levels, temperatures, connectors and fibers, without warm up or user dark current offset.

Interchangeable connectors are dust and drop protected. SC adaptors are supplied, with others available including small formfactor LC styles. Metal free adaptors avoid contamination of connectors in high power systems.

Loss test results can be stored in the large memory, along with a user-input cable name and timestamp. Results can be copied onto a USB memory key with one button push. Alternatively, live readings can be put directly onto a customer report computer using KITS™ customisable Excel-based reporting software. Reports can be easily customized for any terminology, language or format. KITS also provides a one-button file dump to a PC with Windows OS.

When used with Multi-Fiber ID sources, the Multi-Fiber ID tone feature uniquely identifies up to 12 fibers, in addition to common test tones.

The VFL (Visible Fault Locator) option offers simple fault finding and continuity testing.

Flexible power options include a choice of batteries, with a jumper selectable battery charger. External power is via USB.
