Benchtop Backreflection Meters

DRAFT RELEASE - Version 1.0

Ottawa, Canada - February 1, 2016

OZ Optics Limited, a global supplier of fiber optic products for all applications, has introduced a new line of bench-top test instruments. These instruments feature premium performance and features, making them ideal for component and device testing. Touch screen interfaces, built-in memory and USB 2.0 communication/controls give the user the functionality to streamline and automate the measurement process, while offering unprecedented accuracy.

Bench-top backreflection meters feature a broadband SLED source for greater stability and sensitivity as well as an optional second photodetector for insertion loss measurement. The backreflection meter is available not only for telecommunication wavelengths, but also for 1060nm, 830nm, and 650nm wavelengths, and works with singlemode, polarization maintaining and multimode fibers for these wavelengths. This makes it ideal for fiber lasers, sensors, and biomedical applications, such as Optical Coherent Tomography (OCT). This capability is unique to OZ Optics' backreflection meters. With up to 75dB dynamic range and a broad list of features, the Backreflection Meter is a vital tool for optical return loss measurements of devices.
