RBOPM-500 - Optical Power Meter for 850/1300/1310/1490/1550/1625nm with internal storage memory and USB connectivity

The RBOPM-500 Optical Power Meter is one of the best meters available on the market. For a fiber Plant Manager, this is an indispensable tool, allowing management and data storage for up to 1000 measurements. Optical Power Meters help to identify connectivity issues and determine potential under or over budgeting of the optical power available. RBOPM-500  has a color TFT display and features a USB interface that allows 24/7 measuring with a help of a PC. When used standalone it stores up to 1000 traces in its own internal memory. The Optical Power Meter supports WaveID and can be used in conjunction with our RBOLS-510 Optical Laser Source supplied also by ROBOfiber.

RBOPM-500 can measure MM and SM fiber light for any wavelength between 830nm and 1640nm. It is factory calibrated for 850nm and 1310nm on Multimode fiber and 1310nm/1490nm/1550nm/1610nm for Singlemode fiber. It can measure light levels between +26dBm and -50dBm with an accuracy of +/- 0.2dBm. Measurement resolution is 0.1dBm.

RBOPM-500 has an orange rubber protective case and the package includes a USB to PC connectivity cable. Three AA batteries are required to operate the power meter, batteries are NOT included. Standard ferrule connector has 2.5mm for the OPM embedded tool suitable for SC, ST, and FC optical connectors. For 1.25mm ferrules, a separate optical ferrule adapter must be purchased.

The RBOPM-500 is one of the best available Optical Power Meters on the market, using the highest quality photodiodes and allowing users to custom define up to 10 measuring wavelengths. It is a purchase that allows measuring active fibers efficiently, being an asset for any fiber professional user.
