The 555B 1mm InGaAs optical power meter is a rugged high quality general purpose instrument suitable for many fiber optic measurement applications.
Paired with a RIFOCS 250 Series LED source or 260 Series laser source, the 555B optical power meter is ideal for insertion loss testing of multimode and single-mode fiber optic cables and connectors. The 555B optical power meter can also be used for link loss testing of installed cable plants. The multi-wavelength reference storage capability of the 555B optical power meter permits convenient insertion and link loss testing at different transmission windows if a 252A / 252B dual LED source or 262A dual laser source is used.
