The Fiber OWL 4 ORL is a highly accurate hand-held optical return loss meter, designed to measure the return loss of singlemode fiber networks. Additionally, it can be used for a wide range of functions from simple optical power and loss measurements to standards-based link certification of singlemode fibers. Its built-in Link Wizard walks the user through a series of steps, prompting the user to pick the parameters of their link under test, and sets an ORL reference based on these parameters. This reference is used as a point of reference by which a test will PASS or FAIL against the specified ORL level. When used with an OWL WaveSource singlemode fiber optic light source, the Fiber OWL 4 ORL provides fiber optic professionals with automatic wavelength switching so that the meter and source are always set to the same wavelength, and automatic dual-wavelength storage cuts down on testing time and human error. Up to 1000 fiber measurements can be stored in memory, and can be downloaded to a PC using our free OWL Reporter software via the supplied download cable. OWL Reporter displays fiber tests in either a summary or detail view, and prints out professional certification reports that can be passed along to customers as proof of link certification. Data can also be saved to hard disk for later retrieval. The Fiber OWL 4 ORL is enclosed in high-impact plastic, and a protective rubber boot provides additional shock protection. Its large backlit display is easy to read, and the 18-key pad allows for easy data entry. It can be used in many test environments, including LAN, MAN, WAN, FTTH, Telco, CATV, Manufacturing, and Laboratory.
