918D-IS model with an FP3-FH1 bare fiber adapter
Newport offers low cost photodiode-based fiber optic detectors and high performance sphere-based fiber optic detectors. Choose the best product for your application and budget.
Model 918D-IS-1 Universal Fiber Optic Sensors use a 1" symmetrical integrating sphere to ensure the most accurate calibration possible, regardless of the fiber type measured. The integrating sphere uses a dual detector design, with special optics that improve temperature sensitivity markedly from ordinary detectors, with the wavelength range of 4001650 nm. The 918D-IS-IG uses an InGaAS detector (800-1650 nm) while the 918D-IS-SL uses a Si detector (400-1100nm).
An FC, ST, LC, and SC fiber adapters included, and plug into the detectors front port. The rear port is designed to measure light from straight and angle cleaved bare fibers, using Newports FP3-FH1 bare fiber holder, which is also included. The complete kit is packaged in a rugged carrying case. New! An SMA connector adapter Model 918D-IS-SMA is now available!
Newport detectors include a full spectral response calibration utilizing NIST-traceable standards calibrated with high-precision equipment maintained in Newports optical detector calibration facility. Tight calibration facility and process control allows the tightest calibration uncertainty in industry. Each detector is shipped with the calibration data, which is electronically stored inside the detector's EEPROM. A certificate of calibration as well as the actual calibration curves and data with and without the attenuator are shipped with each product. To maintain accuracy and guarantee performance Newport recommends annual photodiode detector calibration.
