ILX Lightwave Corporation (Bozeman, MT) has introduced the FPM-8220
Fiber Optic Power Meter and FMH-8715, FMH-87107, and FMH-8705 Fiber Optic
Measurement Heads. The FPM-8220 Fiber Optic Power Meter replaces the popular
FPM-8210 Fiber Optic Power Meter and offers improved accuracy,
interchangeable fiber optic measurement heads, and both USB and IEEE-488
interfaces. The FMH-8700 Series Fiber Optic Measurement Heads can make
precise measurements up to +30 dBm over a wavelength range of 800nm to
1650nm. Two new integrating sphere-based measurements heads cover a power
measurement range of 90 dB with ±0.02 dB linearity for connectorized, bare
fiber and bare ferrule measurements. For lower power measurements, a detector
only measurement head covers a measurement range of -75 dBm to +1.5 dBm.
