 The 1500 Series Fibre Optic Power Meters and Light Sources are indispensable tools for fibre installation and maintenance.

 The Fibre Optic Power Meter measures optical power and, when paired with the LS-1500 Series Light Sources, it will perform automatic loss measurements with wavelength recognition for up to three laser wavelengths.

 Pressing the 'store loss button' records all three measurements for later downloading and analysis via its USB port.

 It stores up to 2000 triple wavelength loss measurements. The LTS-1500 Fibre Optic Power Meter greatly simplifies and expedites measurements of fiber optic links.

 It incorporates a highly sensitive and stable InGaAs detector with six calibrated wavelengths that provide a measurement range of +5 to -75 dBm.

 A high powered version is available for CATV applications.

 All fibre optic power meters and lights sources are equipped with universal adapters and are shipped with FC, ST and SC fittings.

 They are powered by a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery and in an emergency can be powered by a standard 9V alkaline.

 The universal power adapter/charger is supplied with four interchangeable plugs.
