   The Agilent/HP N3970A Optical Power Meter is simple to use and has a fast response time with no warm up period. Automatic wavelength identification is possible when used with an Autotest compatible light source, letting you measure at both 1310nm and 1550nm with a single push of a button. The power meter also features an audible signal for fiber identification, and an RS232 port for connection to a PC or laptop for remote control, data logging or merging, and reporting and printing using the Loss Test Companion Software. 


  • robust,rugged construction
  • easy to learn and use
  • highly functional

   The Agilent/HP N3970A series new high-performance precision handhelds meet the specifications required to install, commission or maintain optical fiber networks. But, more importantly, they offer features that make a difference in how efficiently and effectively you take the necessary measurements:

  • Easy access to frequent functions, and a concealed keypad for more demanding applications.
  • Storing results for detailed, off-line examination.
  • Remote control for the optimal deployment of personnel.
  • Pre-programming different set ups.
  • Long battery life to minimize the disturbance to field trips.

   For continuity or loss testing, or for fiber identification, the N3970A Power Meter and the N3974A Dual Laser Source use a common Autotest capability to work together and ease your measurement procedures. Of course, both devices work independently too, for use in existing test setups or for transmitter testing.
