Single Mode Fiber Certification Test Kit with Integrated Fiber Length Testing

Many fiber optic network bids and Requests For Quote (RFQ) are citing cabling standards to specify the set of guidelines (such as fiber length) that the network installer must follow during the network installation. Adherence to such standards is meant to ensure the quality of the installation and guarantee that the network will perform as it was designed.

The process of testing a network installation to ensure its adherence to specified standards is called certification, and often requires hard-copy documentation as proof of adherence to standards.

The Fiber 4 BOLT SM Test Kit contains the tools necessary for certifying fiber optic links against a myriad of popular cabling standards in single mode networks.

The Fiber 4 BOLT optical power meter is multimode and single mode ready, and contains a user-friendly Fiber Link Wizard that performs link budget calculation (including integrated fiber link length testing), and sets a reference value using the characteristics of the link. This reference is the PASS/FAIL threshold and is calculated against the chosen standard. Up to 1000 fiber runs may be stored, then downloaded to a PC for report generation using our Reporter software.

It also includes intelligent automated testing functions, such as automatic dual-wavelength storage and auto-wavelength recognition, which reduce testing time and human error.

The WaveSource SM fiber optic light is designed for accurate testing and certification of single mode (1310nm & 1550nm) networks. Its dual-wavelength outputs are temperature-stabilized for accurate measurements.

The WaveSource SM has a built-in auto-wavelength switching protocol designed to synchronize the wavelength of the Fiber 4 Bolt with the current output wavelength.


  • Certification of single mode fiber links at 1310nm and 1550nm
  • Auto-wavelength recognition and automatic data storage reduce testing time and human error
  • Integrated fiber optic length tester for accurate link length measurements
  • Data storage for up to 1000 data points including run labels, fiber type, and link information including link name, date, reference power values, fiber length, and number of splices and interconnects
  • Built-in loss wizard for calculation of maximum allowable loss values (linkbudget)
  • USB interface for continuous data logging, report printing, or data downloading
  • Reporter software for printing formatted fiber certification reports
  • Absolute or relative mode for giving you instant pass/fail results
  • Selectively view, delete or resample data points
