Press Release Summary:
Microprocessor-controlled FOS-860A monitors and measures optical modulation index (OMI) of optical carrier. Capable of measuring OMI in percent, per channel, or total, all controls are front panel-accessible, and results are displayed on 2-line, 48-character, back-lit LCD. Unit features front panel BCD pushbuttons for channel loading and measures optical power in mW or dBmW within 1310 and 1550 nm optical windows in absolute or relative modes.
Original Press Release:
Optical Test Instrument Emulates Wide-Band Optical Node
A new, portable optical receiver that monitors and measures the optical modulation index (OMI) of an optical carrier to simplify setup and maintenance is being introduced by M2 Optics, Inc. of San Marcos, California.
The FOS-860A Optical Receiver is designed to "look" like the typical wide-band optical node widely used in CATV, CCTV, multi-channel, or other high quality optical communications networks. Capable of measuring the OMI of an optical carrier in percent, per channel, or total, all controls on this microprocessor-controlled instrument are front panel accessible and the results are displayed on an easy-to-read 2-line 48-character, back lit LCD.
Featuring front panel BCD pushbuttons for easy channel loading, the FOS-860A Optical Receiver measures optical power in mW or dBmW within the 1310 nm and 1550 nm optical windows; in either absolute or relative modes. Providing a 75 Ohm RF output to drive spectrum analyzers or other network devices, it measures and displays the RF output level of the modulating signals.
The FOS-860A Optical Receiver is priced at $6,995.00 (quantity 1). Literature is available upon request.
