PM-212-CWDM Pocket optical power meter USB probe

PM-212-CWDM Pocket optical power meter USB probe

The PM-212-CWDM optical power meter is a small, pocket size low cost item. The small size does not prevent the optical meter fulfilling all technical requirements for field equipment. The tester can be used as pocket power meter or as USB probe, part of testing workstation. The unit can be easily carried in the pocket or on the belt. It allows simultaneous measurement of full CWDM band with 2 extra wavelengths for MM applications (850 and 1300 nm) and 1625 nm for SM. The Li-Pol rechargeable battery ensures long term working time with a minimum life time of 2 years. The unit is able to store 100 measurements which can be uploaded to PC and managed with SmartProtocol software or Data Exporter.
