Optical Power Meter Basics | Power Meter for Optical testing

This page describes Optical Power Meter basics.It mentions Optical Power Meter Vendors or manufacturers.

• The device used to measure power of a optical signal is known as Optical Power Meter.

• Different models are developed with different connector and fiber mode (e.g. single mode or multimode) requirement.

• The wavelength switch is also incorporated in the design in order to adjust the power measurement accuracy based on particular wavelength to be measured.

• In earlier power Sometimes power range switch is also provided. Now-a-days this is avoided and it is done automatically using advanced signal processing technologies. Refer Optical Bands for wavelength bands used in fiber optic domain.
