The small KI9600A Pocket Fiber Meter is ideal for measuring absolute/relative light levels or test tones on single mode, multimode or plastic optical fiber (POF) systems. High traceable accuracy and ease of use make it perfect for field or laboratory.

Tough construction includes moisture resistance, rubber corners, a captive connector dust cap and it can be dropped over 2 meters onto a hard surface. This instrument meets MIL PRF 28800F Class 2.

When used with multiple KI9800 sources, the Multi-Fiber ID feature uniquely identifies up to 12 fibers.

The tight total uncertainty specification covers the entire range of measurement, temperature, connectors and fiber types, without warm up or dark current offset. Calibration is fully traceable.

Operational savings come from a 3-year warranty & re-calibration cycle, 300 hour battery life, and fast operation.

The meter displays mW, μW, nW, dB, dBm to 0.01dB resolution. A separate reference for each λ can be stored.

A Power Averaging Mode measures the average power of modulated signals.

A Limited Feature Mode enables a site manager to lock and track instrument settings to reduce measurement skill, and improve both test confidence and traceability.

Interchangeable optical connectors are dust and drop protected. Other styles include the popular LC.

The InGaAs meter is the preferred solution for single mode testing from 900 – 1650nm.
