OptoTest has introduced the OP740, its most advanced multichannel high-speed optical power meter, at ECOC 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The OP740 retains many of the existing specifications of the current OP710 optical power meter, while introducing features such as variable sampling rate, simultaneous multichannel display, and a more robust user interface.
The new unit boasts sampling rates of up to 10,000 samples per second and will be available with up to 24 channels per unit. Variable sampling rates will allow operators to adjust sampling speed of the unit to match the needs of their tests.
The full-colour touchscreen display will allow the user to view power readings for multiple channels simultaneously without using additional software and simplify the operation of test procedures through the front panel.
The OP740 includes a USB 3.1 port to support the increased sampling rates, while a USB 2.0 port is also available for backwards compatibility.
