Fiber OWL series test kits are ideal for the fiber optic professional who requires standards-based certification of fiber links, including TIA-568, ISO 11801, various Ethernet standards, among others. The Fiber OWL can also be configured with custom standards to meet the needs of various fiber optic applications.

Fiber OWL 4 BOLT kits are now 10-Gigabit Ethernet ready. This new update allows fiber optic professionals to certify their fiber links for 10-Gigabit Ethernet, the next generation of fiber network.

Each Fiber OWL test kit comes with a N.I.S.T. Traceable Fiber OWL optical power meter one or more complementary fiber optic light sources, based upon your application. Many configurations are available. Included with each test kit are a hard-shell carrying case, protective rubber boots, 9-volt batteries, certificate of NIST-traceability, and a USB flash drive with free OWL Reporter software and operation manual.

Fiber OWL 4 BOLT optical power meters come standard with a state-of-the-art UNIVERSAL adapter port system. Two adapter cap options are available, based on the two most common ferrule diameters used in the fiber optics industry:

2.5mm: ST, SC, and FC
1.25mm: LC, MU, and other SFF connectors

The flexibility of universal ports saves money on consumables (since test cables wear out over time).

Physics and optics do not allow the same universal connector port to work well on any brand of light source. Hence, light sources must have fixed ST, SC, or FC connector ports.

There are two versions of Fiber OWL 4 BOLT kits.

Fiber OWL 4 BOLT Series Auto-Wavelength Test Kits offer the ultimate in user- friendliness. Not only does the Fiber OWL 4 BOLT perform optical link length tests, but when used together with the WaveSource fiber optic light source in automatic mode, the meter and light source use auto-wavelength switching technology that coordinates wavelengths automatically, without the need for further user intervention. This feature increases productivity by decreasing testing time and human error. The WaveSource line of light sources also includes the least-expensive quad-wavelength fiber optic light source on the market, integrating all four popular wavelengths into one unit (850/1300nm for multimode and 1310/1550nm for singlemode).

For a more economical option, Fiber OWL 4 BOLT Series Test Kits use Dual OWL MM sources and/or Laser OWL SM sources to give installers a full-featured certification option for their multimode and/or singlemode fiber links at economical prices.

FIBER OWL 4 BOLT OPTIONS
In addition to basic power meter functions, Fiber OWL 4 BOLT optical power meters can be configured with one of two different fiber optic test options.

PLEASE NOTE: ONLY ONE OF THESE OPTIONS CAN BE INSTALLED IN THE FIBER OWL 4 BOLT, NOT BOTH
Integrated Optical Length Tester Port OR Integrated Visual Fault Locator Port
