Description: Black Box Net Tone - Tone generator
Mfr Part #: TS300A
The rugged fiber optic power meter and LED source kit from Black Box are designed to precisely measure power loss in fiber optic components under field conditions. The fiber optic power meter and the LED source work together to measure power loss in fiber optic cable, connectors, attenuators, or other passive optical components.
- A must-have tool when you're working in a telco or network environment
- Trace and locate cable ends by placing the Tone Generator on one end of the cable and the Tone Probe on the other
- Make connections to RJ-11 and RJ-45 jacks and to any wire pair using alligator clips
- The fiber optic power meter
The fiber optic power meter is calibrated at four wavelengths. It measures power levels as high as +20 dBm and as low as -60 dBm. It features a true resolution of 0.01 dBm at all power levels so you can trust measurements below -45 dBm. In relative measurement mode, the meter stores the zero reference reading for all four wavelengths independently in nonvolatile memory. This enables you to turn off the meter to save battery life as you move between testing locations. The meter also displays a 1-dB analog-type deviation pointer and an unaveraged mini display for real-time splice tuning. You can upload readings to a PC for printing and analysis.
- LED source
The LED source supplies the temperature-stabilized light output the fiber optic power meter requires.
- Power possibilities
The meter is powered with either four alkaline batteries or an AC wall pack containing four nickel-cadmium batteries. The nickel-cadmium batteries provide a full day's charge up to several hours. And if you're in a hurry to charge them, an emergency quick-charge mode enables you to charge in one hour. The LED source uses a 9-volt alkaline battery.
- Stand up to field conditions
You don't have to baby these devices. Both feature internal circuitry housed in a high-strength aluminum-extrusion case with high-impact rubber bumpers. They shrug off being bumped or dropped, making this kit a sturdy companion for field use. The fiber optic power meter and LED source kit have a waterproof carrying case, which protects the devices from moisture - even if they're submerged in several feet of water.
