High Power Optical Laser Source KI 2823
The KI 2823 Dual Laser Source is a high power purpose test source for single mode systems, at 1310-1550 nm, with high power +5 dBm output level. Typical applications include fiber optic attenuation measurement, polarity testing and fiber identification on very long-range or high attenuation systems, or laboratory applications.
- Easy to use, rugged & versatile
- Long battery life, micro USB power/charger
- Interchangeable connectors with dust cap & tilt bail
- Superior re-connection repeatability, < 0.1 dB
- Excellent stability
- Autotest & Multi-Fiber ID Tone generator
- Full QA & test reports ISO 17025 traceable
Use a single tester for: SC, LC, MPO, FC, HFBR, & other connectors - including universal & duplex options.
Smart communication makes sure you always get a full, complete, and consistent test result.
Test tone with multi-fiber ID
Send & identify one of 12 unique test tones. Great for quickly verifying continuity, polarity and rack labelling.
Integrates a VFL into AutoTest, so the fiber end you need to test flashes red. Confidence with a quick & easy visual cue.
Zero warm-up laser (KI2300, KI2400, KI23400 only)
Instant high-accuracy testing. Unlike other sources, Zero Warm-Up sources are in-spec & stabilized in seconds.
Legendary source stability
In real-world field conditions, Kingfisher's stable and accurate sources outshine the competition.
To avoid metal dust fragments damaging your tester and fiber-ends, we use high-end metal-free connectors.
Multimode test standard compliance
Kingfisher LED sources meet Encircled Flux and CPR requirements straight out of the box.
