Toronto, Canada – GAO Instruments (www.GAOInstruments.com) is offering its handheld fiber optic light source which is designed for the maintenance of CATV and telecommunications networks. The light source can be used in conjunction with other types of test equipment such as power meters and fiber identifiers to test fiber optic cables.

This compact and easy-to-use optical light source, model C0220004, offers high accuracy and reliability for evaluating a wide range of optical devices and systems such as WNM. This high performance handheld fiber optic light source operates at two frequencies: CW, 2 Hz modulation output at 650nm and CW, 270 Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz modulation output at other wavelengths. It also provides optional auto-off function which makes the instrument deactivated after 10 minutes of the idle time ensuring a long battery life.

This fiber optical light source features 1 to 4 output wavelengths to meet specific requirements including 650 nm red source, 1310/1550 nm wavelengths for single mode fiber and 850/1300 nm wavelengths for multimode fiber. Other wavelengths are available to meet specific needs. It is compatible with both PC and FC optical connectors. In addition, it is powered by 3 AA 1.5 V Alkaline batteries which allows for a very long continual operation time of up to 45 h.

This optical light source belongs to GAO's Light Source family of products which contains products such as Compact Optical Laser Source which is ideal for simulating various conditions in the manufacture, testing and maintenance of passive optical components, Handheld Adjustable Light Source which provides 1 to 4 wavelengths and its output power is adjustable according to customer's specific need and Fiber Optic Multimeter which integrates both an optical power meter module and an optical light source module in one unit and performs closed-loop tests by using both modules. GAO has a series of Fiber Optic Instruments that can satisfy consumers' demands.
