OA1 | MEMS Attenuator

The OA1 MEMS Optical Attenuator can support up to 16 MEMs based variable attenuators in a single 1U unit. The OA1 low insertion loss and high repeatability provides all the features required for Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT) or link loss simulation. With it s high density, the OA1 is the perfect tool for manufacturing applications.

The OA1 MEMS Optical Attenuator offers an attenuation range of 40 dB and is available with single-mode fiber. To provide the flexibility required to adapt to all manufacturing environments, the OA1 is available with connectors on the front panel, or with pigtails on the front or back panels.

The OA1 remote interface can be controlled via Ethernet or USB.

OA5 | Benchtop Optical Attenuator

The OA5 Benchtop Optical Attenuators enable precise optical power control featuring high accuracy and superior repeatability.

The OA5’s are ideal for lab and production applications including power level adjustment in automated test systems, Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT) of transmitters and receivers, and channel equalization in WDM systems.

The OA5 model is a benchtop instrument offering dynamic range of up to 100 dB (depending on the model configuration). The OA5 remote interface can be controlled via GPIB, RS232, USB*, or locally via the user-friendly front panel keypad and display, simplifying the selection and confirmation of attenuation levels.

OA5 series attenuators may be calibrated to particular wavelengths and made to a variety of configuration options offering flexibility for all applications.
