Detector type selection guide        
There are several detector types, they have different applications based on wavelength, power, size and price so several factors must be considered.    
For further details see website: How To Choose an Optical Selector        
         
Summary of detector types        
Si = Silicon. This is suitable for wavelenghs in the visible region and 850nm (multimode). It is only used on out Si5 large area detector see below    
Ge = Germanium. This is suiable for Multimode and Singlemode wavelengths and is in our SM+MM test kits      
InGaAs = Indium Gallium Arsenide. This has the best response to Singlemode wavelengths and is in our SM test kits.      
         
Overview, the key points are highlighted. Detector type Power level Instrument interface Connectors
Single fiber = SC, LC, FC, ST etc
Ge power meter popular choice used for most MM and SM+MM applications. SC, LC, ST etc Ge -60 to +15dBm, damage +20dBm SC Single fiber
High power Ge power meter (2 millimeter size). Specialised power meter this power level very rarely needed. Ge, High power -40 to +33dBm, damage +35dBm 7/8" Single fiber
Ge power meter with 5mm detector size. Suits MM and SM+MM applications. SC, LC, ST etc and MPO-12 and is Biggest selling MPO power meter. Ge, 5mm large area detector -40 to +15dBm, damage +20dBm 7/8" Single fiber, MPO-12
Ge power meter with 7mm detector size. Suits MM and SM+MM applications. SC, LC, ST etc and MPO-12 / MPO-16 Ge, 7mm large area detector -40 to +15dBm, damage +20dBm 7/8" Single fiber, MPO-12, MPO-16
InGaAs power meter, with 20dB filter. A solution for SM high power applications in practical use. SC, LC, ST etc InGaAs with 20dB filter -40 to +24dBm, damage +27dBm SC Single fiber
InGaAs power meter, with 10dB filter. A solution for SM high power applications in practical use. SC, LC, ST etc InGaAs with 10dB filter -60 to +24dBm, damage +27dBm SC Single fiber
InGaAs power meter popular choice for most SM applications. SC, LC, ST etc InGaAs no filter -70 to +10dBm, damage +15dBm SC Single fiber
High power InGaAs power meter (2 millimeter size). Specialised power meter this power level very rarely needed. InGaAs, High power -40 to +33dBm, damage +35dBm 7/8" Single fiber
Ge power meter with 5mm detector size. Suits high accuracy SM applications. SC, LC, ST etc and MPO-12 InGaAs, 5mm large area detector -60 to +10dBm, damage +15dBm 7/8" Single fiber, MPO-12
Si power meter with 5mm detector size. Suits 660nm POF fibre, and MM to 850nm. SC, LC, ST etc and MPO-12. Relatively low cost. Si, 5mm large area detector -60 to +10dBm, damage +15dBm 7/8" Single fiber, MPO-12, POF connectors
