LTK-1 Benchtop Optical Power Meter
High-performance optical power meter
85 dB range
Choice of 1, 2 or 4 detectors
Up to 5 kHz continuous sampling rate
Easy-to-use web-based interface
Optional FIP-400B fibre inspection probe
IVI compliant drivers for automated test systems
Combining the FTB-1750 power meter module with the new LTB-1 platform, the LTK-1 delivers a high-performance benchtop power meter solution to the lab engineer, or the production manager looking for a small, cost-effective easily automated solution.
EXFO designed the LTK-1 for performance, giving it an 85 dB range, fast stabilisation times, and the ability to simultaneously measure high and low signals on up to four channels. This new power meter kit is the only one on the market to offer touchscreen display and optional industry-leading FIP-400B inspection probe.
The LTB-1 platform is Windows-based, and offers maximum efficiency and flexibility through its Ethernet remote control port and powerful processor. It comes with a web-based user interface and powerful remote control capabilities via built-in Ethernet port and IVI compliant instrument drivers.
FIP-400 Intelligent Fibre Inspection
A dirty and/or damaged optical fibre is a common and avoidable problem, and EXFO's intelligent fibre inspection solutions are designed to simplify and speed this task. Proper connector inspection is an essential best practice.
The solution comprises an inspection probe linked to a display platform. The former provides a crisp magnified digital image of connector endfaces, over a Wi-Fi or USB connection, to a handheld test set with display for combined applications, a modular platform for advanced multitesting, a PC or laptop for labs, or even an Android™ smartphone or tablet for even more flexibility. Special analysis software helps ensure connectors and adaptors are clean and free of any defect, removing the risk of misinterpretation.
The EXFO FIP-400 series probes deliver a variety of functions depending on model chosen and display platform

FVA-3800 Variable Attenuator
Up to four attenuators per unit
Very fast settling time
Integrated power meter for accurate output power control
Control via front-panel or remotely by USB or Ethernet
The new versatile FVA-3800 is currently the most compact optical variable attenuator on the market. It is rugged and reliable, and the ideal attenuator for BER testing and system verification in the lab or a demanding manufacturing environment.
The FVA-3800 is capable of housing up to four attenuators per unit, is perfect for tight spaces, and offers a power stabilisation mode and polarisation-maintaining option.
Control is via the simple, flexible and user-friendly front-panel interface, or by PC over USB or Ethernet for multi-instrument management.
FLS-2800 Integrated Tunable Laser Assembly
Narrow linewidth of less than 100 kHz
1 pm tuning resolution
15 dBm of power
Remote PC control via USB or Ethernet
The FLS-2800 is a continuous wave (CW) tunable laser with a high-power output, narrow 100 kHz linewidth and 10 pm resolution tunability over the C or L band. This laser offers a cost-effective and versatile solution for various applications, including coherent/orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission and WDM network emulation. The FLS-2800 is available in single- or dual-laser configurations.
The FLS-2800 is easy to directly control using the knob on the front panel. Each laser is controlled separately, and both wavelength and power can be adjusted quickly and precisely. It is also possible to view the status of and control the FLS-2800 remotely via the USB or Ethernet ports by means of EXFO's TLM user interface.
FLS-2200 Broadband Source
IL testing of passive components. Covers all bands:
Single SLED: 980, 1300, 1485, 1550 and 1610 nm
Dual SLED: 1300/1550 nm and CWDM range (1460 to 1620 nm)
CWDM characterisation in the field
Variable output power
Optimised for power stability
Passive Depolariser available
The high-power SLED-based FLS-2200 Broadband Source covers all the bands needed for telecommunications applications. It provides a broader spectral range and more spectral density in a singlemode fibre than a white light source. The highly stable FLS-2200 is ideal for broadband applications, CWDM network testing, CWDM and PON component manufacturing and testing, as well as fibre-optic sensing and spectroscopy.
For CWDM testing, the dual-SLED option, covering the S, C and L bands, enables accurate characterisation of fibre links and their passive components, with a very cost-effective test setup. Use the 1300/1550 nm source for dual-window couplers and for PON components.
