An FTTH optical power meter (OPM) refers to an instrument used to measure absolute optical power or relative loss of optical power through a section of optical fiber. In fiber optic systems, measuring optical power is the most basic. By measuring the absolute power of the transmitter or optical network, an optical power meter can evaluate the performance of the optical device. Therefore, portable fiber optic meter is usually used for the installation, debugging and maintenance of optical network links. PHXFIBER provides power meters for fiber optics with high quality for sale. The fiber optic power meter price is reasonable and competitive. We have various types of fiber optic power meters, such as handheld optical power meters, optical power source meters and so on.
Optical power is used to measure the absolute power and relate fiber optic loss in fiber optic system. Its price varies for different types. There are two types of handheld optical power meters: common optical power meters and PON optical power meters. A common optical power meter is usually used to measure an absolute power at 850/1300/1310/1490/1550/1625nm optical wavelength. While a PON power meter is used to measure upstream transmission direction at 1310nm wavelength, measure downstream direction at 1490 nm and 1550 nm wavelength.
The lowest unit price of common optical power is around US$10. Sometimes it can be combined with the optical light source (VFL), which will increase the unit price a bit. For PON optical power meter, its unit price is often more than US$50.
Choosing the right power meter for field test applications often becomes a daunting task. There are various types of optical power meters on the market and the variables that affect accuracy. Versatility and shape requirements and the price of fiber optic power meters should be carefully considered, and the appropriate optical power meter should be selected.
