Precision Fiber Optic Measurement

The FPM-8220 Fiber Optic Power meter and FMH-8700 Series Fiber Optic Measurement Head were designed to provide precise fiber optic measurement in demanding test and measurement applications for fiber optic components. The FPM-8220 Fiber Optic Power Meter incorporates a low noise pico-ammeter 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 fiber optic component power measurement.

Ease of Operation

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, filter settings, and gain range, or bar graph. The front panel buttons are grouped by function for ease of setup.

Store and Recall Instrument Settings

For multiple test configurations, 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 configuration to a numbered bin. The recall function allows you to retrieve any of the saved configurations 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 head’s information and date of calibration. The store and recall functions save time in instrument re-configuration for different manufacturing runs or R&D experiments.

Optical Measurement Head to Fit Your Application

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.

Compatible with a Variety of Fiber Optic Connectors

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 Interface

Remote instrument operation is available on the FPM-8220 through an IEEE488.2 GPIB interface or USB 2.0 interface. All instrument controls and functions are 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.
