The KI9800A Series Optical Source is used with an Optical Power Meter for loss testing on single mode, multimode or plastic optical fiber (POF) cable.

When used with an Autotest compatible Power Meter or Loss Test Set, one button automated multi-wavelength loss testing is achieved.

The test tone function can be used with a compatible Power Meter or clip on identifier for fiber detection, continuity testing, fault finding and route location.

When used with a KI9600 Power Meter, multiple sources can positively identify up to 12 fibers at a time, using the Multi-Fiber ID feature.

Re-connection repeatability is <0.1dB, resulting in exceptional practical source stability.

Tough construction includes general moisture resistance, rubber corners and proven ability to withstand drops of over 2 meters onto a hard surface. It meets the general requirements of MIL PRF 28800F Class 2.

850/1300nm LED sources are ideal for multimode testing, in combination with the KI9600 power meters. They meet the Encircled Flux (EF) standard compliance, and provide the most consistent and reliable testing results.
