Overview

The TREND FiberMASTER™ fibre optic testing kit allows the user to measure absolute power and calculate the loss of fibre optic links at several wavelengths. Absolute power measurements are helpful when trouble shooting equipment that may not be operating properly. The dB calibration feature allows the operator to set a reference level to the light source and directly read the loss of fibre optic links without needing to manually calculate the values. The unique form factor allows the light source to be docked neatly within the power meter. This makes the kit compact for easy storage while still allowing full operation of both the source and meter.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: Does FiberMASTER store tests or generate reports?
    A: No. FiberMASTER does not store test data, it provides real-time measurements only.
  • Q: How are LC connections tested with FiberMASTER?
    A: There are two ways to test LC (or other small form factor) connectors. First, hybrid launch cords can be used to convert from a standard ST/SC/FC connection to an LC connection. An LC coupler will also be required to set the reference between the light source and power meter. Second, two optional FC-LC adapters (part # 135051) can be used to convert the connectors on the light source and power meter from FC to LC allowing simplex (single) LC connectors to be directly connected. Note, the LC portion of the adapter is a slip-fit connection and the LC connector does not lock into place.
  • Q: What is the difference between single-mode and multimode fibre?
    A: Multimode fibre has a larger light carrying core of 50 or 62.5 microns compared to 9 microns for single-mode fibre. The larger core of multimode fibre captures more light than single-mode fibre allowing the use of low power LED light sources. The maximum bandwidth of multimode fibre is inversely proportional to length, i.e., doubling the length of a multimode cable reduces it’s bandwidth capacity by half. Multimode fibre is typically limited to lengths of 2,000 meters (6,560 ft). Single-mode fibre requires the use of higher power and more costly laser light sources but does not sacrifice bandwidth for distance. Single –mode fibre can be used at lengths of up to 40,000 meters (131,200 ft) while supporting 10 Gb/s data rates.
