Optical Light Sources

AFL offers a full range of light sources for testing single-mode and/or multimode fiber networks. Read more about our solutions for testing telco and broadband networks, FTTx systems, LAN/WAN networks and more.

Sources with wave ID transmit two or more wavelengths simultaneously–decreasing test time and reducing user errors. when using an AFL wave ID power meter.

AFL just increased the warranty period on these products to five years...at least two years greater than the industry average. Why? Because our products are rugged and dependable...truly second to none!

Featured Products

The OLS4 Quad light source is an ideal field unit for technicians certifying both single-mode and multimode networks. Wave ID feature increases efficiency by reducing test times with simultaneous multiple wavelength tests over one fiber when using an AFL power meter such as OPM5 or OPM4.
NOYES OLS7 Laser Sources offer three stabilized Laser signals from one output port. Test single-mode networks fast with dual and triple wavelength transmit modes. OLS7-FTTH: Designed specifically for testing FTTH networks with 1310, 1490, and 1550 nm wavelengths. OLS7-FTTx: Designed for testing FTTx networks at 1310, 1490, and 1625 nm wavelengths. OLS7-3: Offers 1310, 1550, and 1625 nm wavelengths for testing applications such as Telecom and CATV.
NOYES Contractor Series Optical Light Sources and Power Meters: palm-sized tools designed for testing single-mode and multimode fiber network links. Weighing only 0.4 lb, Contractor Series units are ideal for field use.
NOYES OLS2-Dual is a hand-held, rugged laser source designed for performing insertion loss measurements on single-mode fiber optic links when used with an optical power meter. When paired with an optical fiber identifier, the OLS2-Dual may be used for fiber identification. The LASER output is stabilized to ensure accurate test results per current TIA/EIA requirements.
NOYES OLS1-Dual Light Source features 850 nm and 1300 nm LED output from a single output port and is simple to operate with only a power button and a wavelength select button. Certify 50 or 62.5 µm multimode fiber links for any 850 or 1300 nm application, including Gigabit Ethernet (GBE) per TIA/EIA standards.
OLS1 LED source is a cost-effective two-port 850 nm and 1300 nm LED source for basic testing of multimode fiber networks. OLS1-2C supports testing of 50 µm and 60 µm multimode fibers.
Tool-free connector adapters allow connection of common fiber optic connectors and remove to support cleaning of launch ferule. Products with tool-free adapters include, FTS2, OLS2-Dual, OLS4, OLS7, SVA1
Mulitmode light sources - Encircled Flux (EF) compliant by design for testing fiber links per TIA/EIA 526-14-B and IEC 61280-4-1 Ed. 2.0.
