Acterna announced the availability of the OLP-57 SMART FTTx/PON selective power meter and the OLT-55 SMART optical loss test set.

The OLP-57 SMART FTTx/PON selective power meter is a high-performance power meter for testing, installing and maintaining FTTx/PON systems. It provides simultaneous measurement at all three wavelengths on the fiber (1,490nm and 1,550nm downstream and 1,310nm upstream). The 1,310nm channel provides correct power measurements of burst-type upstream PON signals. The OLP-57 also allows user-adjusted thresholds for easy pass/fail analysis.

The OLT-55 SMART optical loss test set is an easy-to-use universal instrument with a two or three wavelength laser source in combination with a power meter that can be used for single-mode fibers and systems in the lab, manufacturing (USB interface), installation, maintenance and troubleshooting. It creates a new industry standard with the industry's first built-in auto-zeroing function, providing outstanding accuracy even for very low power levels or high loss measurements (patent-pending). In addition, the OLT-55 can be used as a power meter or laser source with all features of the corresponding OLS-55 and OLP-55 handheld testers.

The SMART optical handhelds feature an extended number of calibration wavelengths that provide the highest performance range in the industry; one of the industry's most rugged design; the SMARTStar graphical user interface (GUI); traceable measurements to international standards for confidence in accuracy; quick-start operation; and TWINtest and TRIPLEtest (simultaneous measurements at either two or three wavelengths, which decreases testing times).
