The OptoTest OP380 Handheld Insertion Loss Test Set is an easy-to-use and rugged test set combining a multi-wavelength optical power meter and a mix of laser and LED sources in a compact handheld package. Designed for single-direction measurements, the OP380 can incorporate up to 6 different laser and LED sources and provides fiber optic administrators, installers, and technicians an ideal cost-effective solution for testing single-mode and multimode systems.
Built-in multi-fiber ID identifies up to 12 different test tones from multiple sources for simplified continuity and polarity testing. Multiple insertion loss test results can be stored in internal memory with a timestamp and user-specified cable name and then transferred to an external USB drive with a single press of a button for analysis and record keeping.
The OP380 is available in a wide range of configurations to meet virtually any fiber optic measurement requirement, and can be ordered with an optional VisiTester active fiber identifier and ultra-stable zero warm up light sources for added utility and accuracy.
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS
Maximum Versatility in a Rugged, Compact Package
With up to 6 Laser and LED sources and a multi-wavelength optical power meter packaged in a slim, shockproof, and durable polycarbonate housing, the OP380 is ideal for outside work in remote locations. Compliance with MIL PRF 28800F requirements assures that the instrument will stand up to unprotected and uncontrolled environments.
More than 25 Calibrated Wavelengths Available
A fast and accurate optical power meter measures absolute power, relative power, and detects up to 12 test tones. Displays mW, μW, nW, dB, and dBm to 0.01dB resolution without range changing delays. Separate references for each wavelength are stored and displayed on a large backlit LCD screen that is easily readable in bright sunlight.
Up to 6 Laser and Led Sources in Each Instrument
Multiple laser and LED source options built into the OP380 mean more time spent testing and less time juggling equipment. Laser sources are CWDM standards compliant, covering cable qualification for the O, E, S, C, and L bands, including the water absorption peak, 1625 and 1650 nm. Ultra-stable zero warm-up laser sources are also available, eliminating drift and guaranteeing precise single-mode measurements. LED sources are Encircled Flux (EF) compliant and include mandrel wraps for consistent and reliable test results.
Optional Visitester Identifies Active Test Fibers
The OP380 can be ordered with a VisiTester option that blinks the active test fiber, making it obvious to the user. The test signal is mixed with a test tone for use with clip-on fiber identifiers. The VisiTester output also works as a standard visual fault locator (VFL), and quickly flags fiber breaks, bad splices, pinched fibers, bending losses, and cracked connector ferrules with bright red light escaping from the defect.
Compatible With Other Optotest Handheld Instruments
The OP380 is fully compatible with OptoTest’s OP310 handheld optical power meters and OP350 handheld optical light sources with matching wavelengths, extending your range of test capabilities with fewer equipment upgrades.
Multi Fiber ID
The OP380 can identify up to 12 different fibers, in addition to standard optical test tones, i.e., 270Hz, 1KHz, and 2KHz, when used by itself or with another OP380 handheld insertion loss meter, OP360 handheld bidirectional loss tester, or OP350 handheld optical light source. This makes continuity testing, polarity testing, and fault finding fast and reliable.
Large Internal Memory
The large OP380 internal memory records the date, time, and essential information including the reference value in dBm, detected wavelength in nm, autotest nominal source power, remote instrument serial number, and pass/fail status. Users can input and store up to 20 cable text ID tags using the front panel controls and recall them for easy reference.
Interchangeable Connectors are Protected Against Drops and Impact
The OP380 accommodates a wide variety of industry standard fiber optic connectors, including FC, ST, LC, MU, HFBR, LSA-DIN47256, and E2000. Built-in bumpers and an integral dust cover protect the connector interface against damage and contamination. The dust cover doubles as a stand when used on a benchtop or other surface.
