VISTA, CA – July 10, 2020


Tempo Communications today announced the launch of an Optical Wavelength Splitter, which conveniently and cost-effectively separates the various wavelengths that may be present in an XGPON2 system to measure each specific signal without the need for a costly CWDM or DWDM Optical Power Meter. Tempo’s comprehensive fiber solutions are designed for technicians who demand performance and efficiency.

Tempo’s new Optical Wavelength Splitter (OSW200) delivers high accuracy to measure specific channel wavelengths. With the OWS200, a standard optical power meter, such as the recently launched OPM510 or OPM210, can be used to measure each signal without purchasing an expensive CWDM or DWDM OPM.

The optical loss of the OWS200 is typically less than 0.1dB. Because of this low insertion loss, there is marginal influence on the measurements and no network disruption. Currently, the OWS200 supports two individual wavelengths, but systems with four and eight are also possible.

The compact and versatile OWS200 works with SC/APC connections and is must-have for any fiber technicians tool bag.  

“This Optical Wavelength Splitter makes it easier and less expensive for fiber technicians to do their jobs,” said Keith Foord, fiber instruments product manager with Tempo Communications. “Instead of investing in a very expensive DWDM power meter, they can use Tempo’s OWS200 along with one of our standard OPM’s to separate wavelengths and get an accurate measurement of the fiber network for optimum performance.”

Tempo is an industry leader in delivering relevant, comprehensive test and measurement solutions at a variety of price-points to ensure that every technician has the tools and equipment to get the job done right the first time.
