OWL FC 1550nm, SingleMode, NIST traceable, -10dBm, FP laser source

Reference#: 72181
Item#: OW-LO2-15FC


The Laser OWL 1550 singlemode laser source provides high output and stability in an economical price. The laser diode uses a temperature compensated output and is calibrated to couple -10dBm of optical power into singlemode fiber. The source is simple to operate with an intuitive 2-button interface - one button to control power and the other to select output wavelength. LED indicators highlight the selected source and verify that battery power is sufficient to maintain the calibrated output power.

The Laser OWL 1550 is a laser-based light source designed to test singlemode fiber optic links. The LED indicator shows whether the unit is ON or OFF, and whether the battery has enough power to maintain its calibrated output power. Its 1550nm light sources provide stabilized testing that conforms to international testing standards. Lasers such as the ones in Laser OWL 1550 light sources produce intense beams of infrared energy that are invisible to the eye.
