The SFP CHECK +LIGHT connects to a standard PC/laptop via a USB cable and uses the default web browser to display SFP details such as wavelength, description, range, manufacturer, etc . When used with an SFP that supports SFF-8472 digital diagnostics, the SFP CHECK displays the SFP’s measurements of transmit and receive signal levels and laser bias current.
The SFP CHECK +LIGHT may also be used in testing fiber optics. An SFP plugged into an SFP CHECK +LIGHT, provides a light source enabling an optical power meter to test levels at various points in the fiber optic path. SFP selection enables testing fiber optic networks that incorporate CWDM and DWDM splitters, long range paths, and various data rates. In this application, an SFP CHECK +LIGHT may be powered from an AC outet.
Used by SFP manufactures, Central Office and field technicians, and inventory control personnel, the SFP CHECK +Light simplifies SFP identification and testing and supports fiber optic testing.
