Trend has launched the PON power meter, an optical power meter for use in passive optical networks (PONs) to implement point-to-multipoint fibre-to-premises (FTTx) installations.

The PON power meter is calibrated at the three wavelengths used for upstream and downstream PON voice, video and data traffic, and can measure the power levels at all three wavelengths simultaneously.

The user can preset pass/fail thresholds for each wavelength, to indicate automatic power level verification on coloured LEDs.

It can be connected in through-mode to allow the service to pass uninterrupted, while the tester measures the power in each of the channels.

In this configuration, it can support measurement of Burst-mode in the upstream channel.

Settings are made using simple menus with navigation push buttons on the front panel of the tester.

Other features of this tool include a large memory to store results, and external PC software for results analysis and calibration connected via USB.

The standard SC connector used in PON installations is provided for both the OLT (Optical Line Terminal)/Video and ONT (Optical Network Terminal) ports.

Power supply is from internally rechargeable batteries or from the mains.

Features include: simultaneous power measurements at all three PON wavelengths; through- mode for in-service testing; 1310nm Burst-mode; user-programmable pass/warning/fail thresholds with LED indication; absolute and relative power measurements; clear LCD display with backlight; mains/battery-powered; rechargeable battery; selectable auto power-off for enhanced battery life; results storage; USB results upload to PC; calibration via PC interface; robust design for field use.

Applications are: telecom optical, FTTx and PON installations; optical test laboratories; fibre optics installation and maintenance; optical network commissioning; quality assurance and acceptance testing.
