Fiber OWL 7 series fiber optic link certifiers are high-accuracy, high-resolution, microprocessor-controlled optical power meters capable of performing a wide variety of testing applications, from basic optical loss measurement up to dual-wavelength fiber link certification. With a wide measurement range and NIST-traceable wavelengths, Fiber OWL 7 series certifiers are ideal for both singlemode and multimode fiber link certification. Enclosed in an attractive hand-held case made from high impact plastic and protected by a protective rubber boot, test readings and graphical help screens can be viewed on the color LCD, and an intuitive 10-key keypad allows for easy data entry. Each Fiber OWL 7 fiber link certification power meter is powered by a re-chargeable lithium polymer battery, which typically allows up to 50 hours of continuous use. Abuilt-in auto-shutdown feature further conserves battery life. The battery is re-charged through the USB port via a supplied battery charger. The intuitive built-in Link Wizard prompts the user to enter key information used to calculate standards-based link budgets for fiber optic certification testing, and helpful diagrams guide the user through the setup and testing procedure. Thousands of data points tored information can be selectively viewed, re-tested, or deleted from the device. The data can also be downloaded to OWLView certification software to produce professional-looking formatted certification reports. OWLView software includes a “tri-report" option that integrates power meter certification, OTDR traces, and endface analysis results all on the same report.
