New optical power meter

AGILENT Technologies has released a new optical power meter with four or eight power-sensor channels that provides manufacturing customers with increased throughput and operational efficiency.

AGILENT Technologies has released a new optical power meter with four or eight power-sensor channels that provides manufacturing customers with increased throughput and operational efficiency.

Designed for characterising optical multiport components, the optical power meters are said to offer good solutions for device connectivity, high-speed measurement data acquisition and fast data transfer for post-processing.

The company says the new power meter reduces test cost and speeds throughput to meet today’s challenges in manufacturing.

Manufacturing engineers can improve their operational efficiency with a greatly reduced footprint and easy replacement of the company’s existing equipment with code and trigger compatibility.

The optical power meter extends the company’s portfolio with cost-effective four and eight power-sensor modules in a single box and offers a short minimum averaging time of 1µs and a high dynamic range during swept wavelength measurements.

The fast sample rate of 1 Ms/s enables time-resolved measurement of transient signals.

Additional features of optical power meter include: a new fiber connectivity concept designed to separate the connecting task from the measurement task as well as removable connector holder, new LAN and USB interfaces and multiport power meter designed to enable fast measurement solutions for all multiport devices, for example multiplexers, PON splitters, wavelength switches and ROADMs.
