BR5 - CW Back-Reflection Meter

The BR5 Backreflection Meter is a user-friendly instrument developed with extremely stable optics for precise measurement of backreflection, insertion loss and power. The BR5 features up to four built-in laser sources at wavelengths of 850, 1310, 1490, 1550, 1625 or 1650 nm (depending on fiber type). An intuitive display and keypad, with one-button access to BR and IL modes, simplifies the collection and management of measurement data. The meter may be controlled through remote interface (GPIB, RS232, or USB*) or locally via the user friendly front panel keypad and display. It is available in single-mode and multimode, the BR5 is ideal for measurements of connectors, components, and systems. The BR5 achieves ultra-stable backreflection measurements at very low values. Accuracy is typically ±0.4 dB and measurement sensitivity is to -80 dB. Insertion loss relative accuracy is ±0.05 dB. All our BR5 meters come standard with our GMS Software. The multimode BR5 meets IEC-61280-4-1 Encircled Flux Standard.
