The FiberXpert 700 unit displays PASS/FAIL results directly on its high-resolution color LCD screen and comes with a rechargeable lithium polymer battery that enables up to 50 hours of operating time. Applications for this kit include complete Tier 1 fiber optic link measurements, optical loss or power measurements, continuity testing and more.

Other notable features of the FiberXpert 700 kit include the following:

  •    –  Indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) detector type.
  •    –  Calibrated wavelengths: 850, 980, 1300, 1310, 1490, 1550 and 1625.
  •    –  Measurement range: +5 to -70 decibel-milliwatts.
  •    –  Accuracy: ±0.15 decibels.
  •    –  Detector connector type: 2.5 millimeter / 1.25 millimeter universal.
  •    –  Data storage: up to 10,000 data points.
  •    –  Modes of operation: CERT, LOSS and OPM.
  •    –  Operating temperature: -10 to 55°C.
  •    –  Dimensions and weight: 72.9 x 112.3 x 31.8 millimeters and 12 ounces.
