Fluke FOM Fiber Optic Meter

The Fiber Optic Power Meter (FOM) measures optical power on fiber optic cables. An FOM indicates any power loss on tested cables using any digital multimeter (DMM) or graphical multimeter (GMM) that has a 10 MΩ input impedance, standard diameter banana jacks, and mVdc capability. The Fiber Optic Light Source (FOS) is used as a light source with the FOM or other fiber optic meters.

Product Overview: Fluke FOM Fiber Optic Meter

The Fluke Fiber Optic Meter (FOM) helps you test and maintain fiber optic cable without having to buy a whole new meter. Plug the FOM directly into any DMM with a mV dc function and a 10 MΩ input impedance and quickly and accurately verify fiber optic cable system loss. Light sources and patch cords sold separately.
