Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in laser and photonic solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light®, introduces the 1830-R Optical Power Meter. The all new Model 1830-R Optical Power Meter is a completely redesigned optical meter, replicating much of the functionalities and specifications of the legacy 1830-C Model. The1830-R is a perfect drop-in replacement for your existing 1830-C, which was also the most popular Newport meter used in fiber optic component production and testing. DC power measurements can be displayed in units of W, dBm, dB, and Relative Measurement on the instrument’s bright 4 1/2 digit annunciated LED, providing a wide dynamic range with power sensitivities down to 10 pW and full scale readings up to 2 W (detector dependent). Relative power measurements, in reference to a previously stored value, is performed with the result displayed either as a ratio or dB.
USB2.0 is the standard computer interface, while the 1830-R-GPIB model offers additional IEEE-488 (GPIB) and the RS-232C ports. Both the 1830-C and the current 19xx-C commands are supported. A built-in beeper, which changes its frequency as a function of incident optical power, can be utilized to optimize optical beam alignment. The analog output that provides a voltage proportional to the detector current can be used for fast control loop applications.
