Stabilized Light Sources

Cat No: SLS520/SLS525/SLS530/SLS535/SLS536

Tempo Communications rugged, adaptable and stable fiber optic sources (SLS520, SLS525, SLS530, SLS535, SLS536) are available in dual and triple wavelength lasers and a dual wavelength LED. Accurate insertion loss measurements are possible when used in conjunction with the Tempo Communications optical power meters. When placing tones on the fiber the Tempo Communications optical power meter will quickly identify the fiber.

The ruggedized IP54 compliant package provides test confidence when testing singlemode and multimode networks. See Models tab for options as well as Adapters and Accessories.
