Customized CWDM Source Solutions

Advancing the World of Fiber Optics™

The multichannel sources can be customized to provide the perfect platform for testing WDM components for insertion loss at various wavelengths. The OP715 benchtop source can house 4 CWDM source wavelengths such as 1270 to 1330 for certain applications. For applications where more wavelengths are necessary, the full rack OP750 multichannel source can support DFB lasers for all 18 ITU G.694.2 wavelengths commonly used when testing CWDM components.

The CWDM sources can be coupled with OP720 multichannel optical switches and OP710 multichannel power meters to streamline and automate the testing process.

Product Features

Key Features & Benefits

Completely configurable to match exactly the wavelengths that need to be tested.

Complete Solution
All sources built into a single unit with USB control to maximize space on test bench.

Calibration Not Required
Due to the wavelength stability of these sources, calibration is only necessary if defined by your processes.
