Agilent optical power sensors are the right choice for accurate power measurements on fiberoptic devices. The modular sensors fit into all Agilent 816x Lightwave mainframes and can be used singly or in multiples for parallel measurements of multichannel devices. The output fiber is easily attached using Agilent's flexible connector adapters or bare-fiber adapter.
The modules have wide wavelength-range calibration and can each store up to 100,000 samples and run measurement applications like data logging, stability and recording minimum and maximum values over time. Triggered synchronization with tunable laser modules enables powerful spectral measurements, with the advantages of higher resolution, better polarization dependence and cost-and-time-efficient multichannel expandability, compared to a setup with broadband source and optical spectrum analyzer. Choose from Agilent's selection of sensor modules based on the need to optimize for sensitivity, dynamic range and power, speed and polarization dependence.
Low power uncertainty of ±2.5%
Low PDL uncertainty of <0.005dB
Traceable to NIST and PTB
Thermally stabilized (cooled) and hermetically sealed detector with glass window (81634B)
Comprehensive sampling and triggering concept (hardware trigger lines, filtering, event trigger, hardware timer, analog output)
Low uncertainty in Power and PDL leaves you higher test margins for your components.
The traceability gives you the certainty of measurements referenced to internationally accepted standars.
The optical detector design enables consistent measurement results independent of ambient environment inluences like humidity, dust and temperature.
The comprehensive hardware and trigger concept gives you the flexibility to adapt the power meter to changing test needs.
