The FPM-8220 Fiber Optic Power Meter combines accurate, repeatable power measurements with low polarization dependence in a simple easy to use instrument for R&D or manufacturing testing of fiber optic components and systems.Interchangeable fiber optic power measurements heads deliver repeatable results for measurements up to +30 dBm over a wavelength range of 800 nm to 1650 nm. The FMH-8715 and FMH-87107 fiber optic power measurement heads use integrating sphere technology to virtually eliminate sensitivity to laser polarization state or fiber orientation. The FMH-8705 detector provides easy to use measurements with wide dynamic measurement range from -85 dBm to +1.5 dBm. Connectorized, bare fi ber, and ferrule only measurements are possible with a variety of adapters. ILXs patented BF-820 Bare Fiber Holder provides easy fiber positioning for repeatable bare fiber measurements.Designed for automated systems, the FPM-8220 combines precision measurement with USB 2.0 and GPIB IEEE488.2 computer interfaces. For virtual instrument programming, LabVIEW® instrument drivers are available for download.
The FPM-8220 Fiber Optic Power meter and FMH-8700 Series Fiber Optic Measurement Head were designed to provide precise fi ber optic measurement in demanding test and measurement applications for fiber optic components. The FPM-8220 Fiber Optic Power Meter incorporates a low noise picoammeter capable of measuring over a wide dynamic range with high stability and repeatability necessary for precise measurement. Designed for production environments, the FPM-8220 Fiber Optic Power Meter incorporates an intuitive front panel and includes GPIB and USB as standard remote interfaces.By combining the FPM-8220 with one of the FMH-8700 Series Fiber Optic Measurement Heads, the system provides better than +2.5% accuracy with +0.01dB repeatability for precise fi ber optic component power measurement.
The front panel features a large 7-segment LED display with integrated dot matrix display. The large 7-segment LED display provides easy viewing of measured power across the lab and displays power in dBm, mW, or reference from a previous setting. The dot matrix display can display set wavelength, fi lter settings, and gain range, or bar graph. The front panel buttons are grouped by function for ease of setup.
For multiple test confi gurations, the FPM-8220 Fiber Optic Power Meter offers a store and recall feature. The store function allows you to save all the front panel settings for any given instrument confi guration to a numbered bin. The recall function allows you to retrieve any of the saved confi gurations at any time through simple front panel button press or remotely through the GPIB and USB interfaces. An additional recall function allows the FPM-8220 to display the current connected measurement heads information and date of calibration. The store and recall functions save time in instrument re-confi guration for different manufacturing runs or R&D experiments.
The FMH-8700 Series Fiber Optic Measurement Heads have the calibration stored in the connector to allow rapid interchanging of measurement heads during different test setups. The measurement heads cover a wavelength range of 800nm to 1650nm with a power range of -85 dBm to +30 dBm.
Remote instrument operation is available on the FPM-8220 through an IEEE488.2 GPIB interface or USB 2.0 interface. All instrument controls and functionsare accessible through the interfaces for easy remote programming and control in automated test systems where repeatable and accurate test sequencing, measurements, and data handling are required. The FPM-8220 can replace the FPM-8210 and Agilent 8163A in automated setups by providing compatible with FPM-8210 and related Agilent 8163A remote commands.
