The Model 818-IS-1/CM Universal Fiber Optic Detector uses a symmetrical integrating sphere design to ensure accurate calibration, regardless of the fiber type measured. The detector uses a novel dual detector design, with special optics that improve temperature sensitivity markedly from ordinary detectors. It can be used with Newport power meters or with the Model 8800/8200 PTS-OPM power meter modules (with 818-ADAPT-OPM adaptor cable).
Each detector is fully calibrated to NIST traceable standards over the wavelength range of 400-1650 nm. The calibration data is encoded in a calibration module integral to the electrical connector, which makes the 818-IS-1 compatible with all of Newport power meters that use calibration modules.
Maximum versatility is provided by the detector dual port design. A variety of adaptors for connector terminated fibers are provided, and plug into the detector front port. The rear port is designed to measure light from straight and angle cleaved bare fibers, using Newport FP3-FH1 bare fiber holder. A complete kit of adaptors is included with each detector, together with a rugged carrying case.
