THE PON power meter from Vicom is part of EXFO's series of FTTx-compliant optical test products.
It allows for the testing of passive optical networks (PONs) at the three main wavelengths (1310, 1490 and 1550nm) recommended by the ITU-T (G.983.3) for use in fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) networks.
The PPM-350B PON power meter is optimised for FTTx service activation and maintenance.
This straightforward instrument simultaneously measures the optical power of voice, data and video signals. What's more, it offers pass/fail indicators based on 10 configurable threshold sets and requires virtually no fibre-optic experience or training.
It is the only power meter on the market that can be connected inline between the OLT and the ONT, allowing full communication while testing.
