Intuitive and versatile Tool for optical Power Measurement

JDSU PowerChek02 December 2014 — JDSU announced PowerChek, an innovative optical power meter that enables technicians to test and document measurements with unprecedented ease. PowerChek directly measures a bulkhead port’s optical power without the need for a test lead. Instead, interchangeable connectors safely engage the bulkhead port without risking cross contamination or damaging the fiber end face.

"Optical networks are growing at an unprecedented rate, and the expectations for fiber technicians continue to increase," stated Matt Brown, Director of the JDSU Fiber Inspection and Test group. "The expansion of fiber into mobility, DAS, data centers, and other environments has led to new expectations for documentation and interoperability while also creating a wave of technicians that are new to testing fiber networks. PowerChek addresses these technicians’ needs by giving them the necessary capabilities to finish their work fast, correctly, and on time."

Key Benefits

  • Eliminates cumbersome test leads with PowerChek connectors
  • Ensures a safe test without damaging the fiber
  • Allows easy access to connections with a compact, hinged, and adjustable arm
  • Bluetooth capability pairs with smartphones, tablets, PCs, and other JDSU devices

PowerChek is equipped with a bright, easy-to-read touchscreen display and onboard memory, so users can measure data and store readings significantly faster than traditional power meters. Bluetooth-enabled, it pairs with all compatible devices to let technicians generate reports and share their results via e-mail.

From simple moves, adds, changes, and troubleshooting of existing networks to large-scale new deployment projects, PowerChek simultaneously enhances and simplifies optical power testing.
