The OLS2 laser source is a cost-effective, rugged, handheld instrument designed for performing insertion loss measurements on single-mode fi ber optic links when used with an optical power meter. When paired with an optical fi ber identifi er, the OLS2 may be used for fi ber identifi cation. The LASER output is stabilized to ensure accurate test results per current TIA/EIA requirements.
Two versions of the OLS2 are available for measurements at 1310 nm, 1550 nm. This light source offers 2 modes of operation: continuous wave (CW) and 2 kHz modulated Tone. [Laser Active], [Battery], and [External Power] indicators identify the enabled laser, battery charge status, and external power presence. The output port is equipped with FC, SC, or ST style connector. The OLS2 laser sources operate on disposable batteries or AC adapter. The OLS2 is fully N.I.S.T. traceable.
The OLS2 may be substituted for terminal equipment in the central offi ce or head-end to provide a stable output for loss measurements.
For single-mode applications, such as Telecom or CATV, the OLS2 may be coupled with an optical power meter as a test kit to perform optical loss tests at 1310, 1550 nm.
In the modulation mode, the OLS2 applies a 2 kHz tone into the fi ber. This signal is detected by the OFI-200, optical fi ber identifi er, to isolate specifi c fi bers in a bundle prior to splicing or rerouting.
