Greenlee Communications Announces a Combination Optical Power Meter and Visual Fault Locator for Troubleshooting Fiber Networks

VISTA, Calif., (May 15, 2018) — Greenlee Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announces the addition of the Micro OPM to its robust line of fiber optic test and measurement instruments. The Micro OPM includes an Optical Power Meter (OPM) and Visual Fault Locator (VFL) in one unit, providing technicians an efficient and simple-to-use tool for troubleshooting FTTx and Point to Point networks. This combination tool is compatible with both single-mode and multi-mode networks, including FTTh, LAN/WAN, Telco and CATV.

The Micro OPM is the perfect tool for every fiber technician. It does exactly what is needed, is intuitive and is accessible to all,” says Oleg Fishel, Director of Product Management for Greenlee Communications.

The versatile OPM measures the optical power and insertion loss of a fiber using an InGaAs detector calibrated at wavelengths from 850nm to 1625nm and features tone detect at 270Hz, 1kHz and 2kHz for measuring all common wavelengths and identifying injected tones from compatible sources. The OPM is available in standard Telco (+6 to -70dBm) and MSO (+26 to -50dBm) power ranges.

The simple and effective VFL uses a 650nm 1mW laser that can be used to safely detect macro-bends, contaminated or faulty connectors and broken or damaged fibers. The white LED can be used to aid the technician while working in dimly lit locations.
