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.
