GAO's Handheld Optical Variable Attenuator for Single-mode Fiber

Toronto, Ontario Canada (PressExposure) June 27, 2012 -- GAO Fiber Optics ( ) is offering its handheld optical variable attenuator which is used with single-mode fiber for continuously variable optical signal attenuation. Featuring a rugged design, lightweight and ease-of-use, this attenuator is commonly used in fiber link certification, routine maintenance and in lab environments.

This optical variable attenuator, model C0270001, features low battery power, on-line attenuation, auto-off function and stepwise attenuation of 0.05 dB steps. The attenuator can be used in digital system communication devices such as PHD and SDH and also in analog modulation CATV systems. Other common applications for the attenuator include telecom maintenance, CATV maintenance, comprehensive cable construction systems, optical instruments research and development and optical communication training.

This attenuator combines the functions of both an attenuator and an optical power meter. It provides an attenuating wavelength range from 1260 to 1650 nm at an accuracy of ±0.8 dB and a wide measurement range from 2.5 to 65 dB. Wavelength, input power, output power, current attenuation and selected step size and absolute and relative attenuation value can be displayed simultaneously on the LCD screen. What's more, it memorizes the attenuating value and step on shut down and restores the values on next power up.

This optical variable attenuator belongs to GAO's family of Fiber Optic Instruments. This line includes lots of featured products such as Handheld Laser Source which provides a stable laser signal at various wavelengths and also features high stability in output power and is widely used for LAN, WAN, CATV and long-distance optical networks, Handheld Optical Power Multi Meter which can conduct absolute and relative power tests, optical loss tests for fiber optic cable and passive optical devices and is available for all common connector types including FC, SC, ST, and LC.
