We Guarantee to Have the Best Price

What's special about these pocket fiber meters?

  • A simple to use design with 9 traceable calibration wavelengths makes these testers the ideal solution for measuring absolute / relative light levels or test tones on single mode, multimode or plastic optical fiber (POF) systems
  • SC adapter included and optional (sold separately) ST, FC, and LC interchangeable adapters available
  • Compact design is small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, yet rugged enough to survive a 2 meter drop onto a hard surface

Singlemode Patch Cords Singlemode Patch Cords
From per meter
Singlemode is an optical fiber, with a small core (2-9 microns that supports one mode). The mode Size (standard ie 8.3/125) is stamped on the yellow cable jacket. Singlemode is most commonly used for high speed, long distance applications.
Multimode Patch Cords Multimode Patch Cords
Multimode is an optical fiber with a core (25-200 microns) that supports several modes. The core commonly 62.5/125 or 50/125 is stamped on the cable jacket. Multimode is most commonly used for lower speed, short distance applications.
