Handheld Optical Variable Attenuator for Single-Mode Fiber

Toronto, Ontario Canada (PressExposure) April 06, 2012 -- GAO Comm ( http://www.GAOComm.com ) is offering its handheld optical variable attenuator which is used with single-mode fiber for continuously variable optical signal attenuation. The attenuator can be used in digital system communication devices such as PHD and SDH and also in analog modulation CATV systems. It is also ideal for such applications as telecom and CATV maintenance, comprehensive cable construction systems and optical instruments research and development.

Featuring a rugged design, high portability and ease of use, this optical variable attenuator, model C0270001, is widely used in fiber link certification, routine maintenance and in lab environments. It combines the functionality of both an attenuator and an optical power meter and allows users to set the output power level directly thus improving the overall testing efficiency.

This attenuator features low battery indication, on line attenuation, auto-off function and stepwise attenuation of 0.05 dB steps. It works with typical 9/125 single mode fibers and offers FC and PC interchangeable connectors for selection. The attenuator 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. Calibrated wavelengths are 1310, 1490, 1550 and 1625 nm. 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. In addition, it memorizes the attenuating value and step on shut down and restores the values on next power up.

This attenuator belongs to GAO's family of Fiber Optic Instruments. A featured product in this line is Handheld Optical Power Meter which is calibrated over a large number of wavelengths to enable power measurements to be made on a wide range of single mode and multimode fiber optic cable systems. This line also includes Fiber Fusion Splicer, Portable Optical Fiber Identifier, Multi-Function Optical Time Domain Reflectometer and many other fiber optic instruments. GAO's fiber optic instruments are widely used in telecommunications, CATV, power industry and for science and research.
