Simple and fast way to observe how the network connection looks like and make a Pass/Fail judgment of the network connection. The markers enables distance and loss measurements.
Built-in PC and LS, and VLS
Power checker (PC)
Measures and displays optical power of incoming light for testing network performance.
Light source (LS)
Outputs a stable, continuous wave/modulated light for measuring end-to-end attenuation accurately when paired with an optical power sensor.
Visible light source (VLS)
Outputs red light for checking continuity of launch numbers or short number trunks. Breaks and bending in number can be identified visually.
(/VLS option is required.)
