DATE OF DISCONTINUANCE: April 2007
The MS9020D is a handy optical measuring instrument that incorporates an LD or an LED light source and an optical power meter. It can also be used for return loss measurement. Every unit of the LD light source (4 types), LED source (7 types), the sensors (8 types) and the return loss measurement unit (1 type) is a plug in type, for easy exchange and highest suitability for field use.
The MS9020D covers 0.66 ?m, 0.85 ?m, 1.3 ?m, and 1.55 ?m bands for optical loss measurement. In addition to the CW mode, it provides a modulated light mode with 270 Hz, 1 kHz, and 2 kHz modulation signals. Therefore, it is possible to measure optical loss over a wide dynamic range without stray light effect. This is the most suitable for single mode fiber measurement. For return loss, 1.3 ?m band single mode fibers can be measured in the 0 to 40 dB range. As a power meter, every sensor has a wavelength calibration function of 5 nm steps at 3 wavelengths, so absolute values can be read directly.
