OP-METS Multichannel Environmental Test Station

The OP Multichannel Environmental Test Station OP-METS is optimized for environmental testing of up to 144 single mode or multimode fiber assemblies or passive components.


OPL-LOG is a data acquisition and logging software that controls OptoTest instruments via USB along with thermal chambers, thermocouples, and other auxiliary sensors* for monitoring testing parameters. OPL-LOG provides graphs for IL, RL, and supported data acquisition devices and records the data in an Excel spreadsheet. This logging capability makes OPL-LOG well-suited for standards compliant long-term testing of fiber optic components. Tests can be configured to perform measurements at arbitrary, fixed time intervals over an arbitrary duration. For increased testing efficiency, OPL-LOG can run two simultaneous tests with different configurations on a single OP-METS system.** The OP-METS system and the accompanying OPL-LOG software can be further customized for your application requirements.
