The WaveTester is a high accuracy, high resolution, microprocessor controlled, optical power meter. It has a 65dB dynamic range, and is NIST traceable at 850, 1300, 1310, and 1550nm, making it ideal for both singlemode and multimode fiber testing. Additionally, it comes calibrated at 1490nm, allowing the meter to measure optical loss at the wavelengths used in Fiber To The Home (FTTH) PON networks.

The WaveTester will store reference values for each wavelength to be used for optical loss measurements, and can store up to 200 measured data points. Stored data can be downloaded to our free OWL Reporter software to produce formatted certification reports. Optionally, the battery charging port in the WaveTester can be replaced with a precision-coupled visual fault locator that is optimized for fiber optics. Its high-intensity red laser allows for fiber identification up to 1.5 kilometers away.
