    1.0 Introduction

    1.1 Summary

    This manual describes characteristics of both FX40 and FX45 optical test devices, as they are very similar in operation.

    The operator is assumed to have received basic training in fiber optics and related testing and measurement practices.

    2.0 General Information

    2.1 Overview

    The FX40/45 series optical loss test sets can be factory configured to meet customer requirements. A single device can combine several test functions for fiber optic network testing and measurement. The most popular optical combinations are listed below:

     OPM (Optical Power Meter)

     OPM + VFL (Visual Fault Locator)

     OPM + OLS (Optical Light Source)

     OLS (pure Laser Source)

     OLS + VFL

     ORL (Optical Return Loss) + BiDi LTS (auto-bi-directional) + OPM + OLS

    The above units have the following parameters:

     The FX40/45 Optical Power Meter has >7 calibrated wavelengths (model dependent PM1/PM2/PM3, see datasheet for exact wavelengths).

     Visual Fault Locator (not available in ORL model) with the CW (Continuous Wave) mode and two modulation modes (1 Hz and 2 Hz)

     Laser Source up to 2 wavelengths (1310/1550 or 1310/1490 nm)

     ORL Meter (two wavelengths 1310/1550 or 1310/1490nm)

     Automated Optical Loss Test/ORL Meter (two configurations 1310/1550nm or 1310/1490nm) for bidirectional testing integrated optical receiver and transmitter linked to the connector on the top panel

    Key features:

     InGaAs photodiode with large sensitive area (1000 μm) integrated into the front panel adaptor

     Wavelength detection (Wave ID code) – FX45 series only

     Frequency/tone detection for fiber identification

     Interchangeable optical adaptors for Power Meter and Light Source

     Extremely rugged, pocket-sized form factor

     Extra-long battery life, AA type alkaline or rechargeable NiMH

     Client USB software for data transfer and remote control

    2.2 Definitions

    Optical Interface: PC, UPC, APC (designates the type of surface polish):

     PC (regular Physical Contact): better than -45 dB return loss

     UPC (Ultra Physical Contact): better than -55 dB return loss

     APC (Angled Physical Contact): better than -65 dB return loss

    Optical Pigtail: A piece of fiber (typically tight-buffered) terminated with an Optical Connector on one end (see below).

    Optical Connector: A Pigtail is terminated with a MALE type connector. There are a variety of optical connectors, such as FC, SC, LC, MU, etc.,
