DLS350 / DLS355 / DLS360  

Handheld Dual Light Sources

The DLS 3XX series of dual light source allows stabilized power levels for accurate loss measurements on multi mode systems. Technicians can utilize each of the wavelengths included in this light source to reference and test with RP 4XX series optical power meters and gather measurements to meet international standards.

The DLS 3XX provides a 2 kHz tone output which is recognized by the RP 4XX series power meters; the incoming 2 kHz signal is identified and an audible alert is provided by the power meter. This 2kHz signal will also allow fiber identification when used with non-invasive fiber identifier devices, such as the LFI 110.

The dual light source comes with a female SC adapter to allow connection to test jumpers and fiber under test. Easy removal of the adapter means that the light source ferrule can be cleaned to prevent contamination of test jumpers. Additional adapters are available







DLS650 / DLS655

Hand-Held Dual Light Sources with WaveID

The DLS65X optical light source provides multiple wavelength options to meet modern fiber optic testing needs. The base model DLS650 outputs 850 and 1300nm wavelengths in either single or dual mode and the DLS655 outputs 1310 and 1550nm.

When combined with the RP 560 model optical power meter, this LED source can greatly reduce the time needed to test fiber cables with its automated wavelength switching feature. The unit periodically switches between available wavelengths, and the power meter recognizes each time the switch occurs, allowing multiple loss tests to be completed simultaneously.

Easy removal of the included SC adapter allows the light source ferrule to be cleaned, preventing contamination of test jumpers. Additional adapters are available.

This device maintains full compliance with all FDA and CFR standards for light-emitting products.

 OLS-85 Series

 Light Source

The SmartClass Fiber OLS-85 handheld light source is a professional, versatile, and compact instrument used for fibre-optic network qualification and certification. Its specific wavelength combinations make it optimal for link loss testing and long-haul, metro, and access telecommunication network characterization, as well as data center and local area network testing.

In addition to providing a full day of battery-operated field use, the SmartClass Fiber OLS-85 is perfect for fixed installations in central offices, production environments, and laboratory workbenches because it can operate via mains with remote-control capabilities via USB 2.0 and Ethernet.
