VCSEL Optical Test Source KI9840A
The shirt-pocket size KI 9840A Pocket Fiber Source is for testing of multimode, PCS or POF systems at 850 nm using a VCSEL source. It can also achieve useful short-range testing on singlemode systems at 1300 nm, since it has a specified output level into SMF.
We suggest that generally the KI9812A LED source is a better general multimode test solution, unless a VCSEL is specifically required.
- Encircled Flux compliant modal distribution
- Rugged, drop-resistant construction
- User defeatable auto turn-off
- Excellent stability
- Lanyard, shirt pocket clip & padded pouch
- Tone generator & Multi-Fiber ID function
- Easy use TamperLock mode
- Compatible with Autotest power meters
- Interchangeable connectors
- Full QA reports with ISO9001 compliant calibration
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.
Lock down user controls and configuration to reduce the risk of test failure.
Legendary source stability
In real-world field conditions, Kingfisher's stable and accurate sources outshine the competition.
