Single and Dual LD Source; 850 to 1625 nm; Reflectance Dynamic Range -1 to -70 dB; Fiber Type SM, MM; 8° Angled NTT-FC/APC Receptacle
OZ Optics’ BM series of backreflection meters measure the total accumulated optical return loss that is reflected back through a device or fiber under test. The measured reflections are caused by Rayleigh scattering, sudden changes in the refractive index within the device under test (DUT), or from connector ends.
The BM-100 and BM-200 backreflection meters are configured with an FC/APC connector on the output port, to minimize unwanted reflections. The meters have either one or two built-in laser diodes for return loss measurement at specific wavelengths. An optional detector can be added to the unit for insertion loss measurements.
The BM series backreflection meters can be operated remotely via the built-in USB interface. A universal AC/DC power supply is included with all units. Reference patch cords for calibration are available. Adapter patch cords are also available, to allow the meter to be used with devices having different connectors.
