MSL-100

Tunable Laser MSL-100

Multi-Port Wavelength Selectable Laser System

MSL-100
The MSL-100 is a new Multi-Port Wavelength Selectable Laser System designed for Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) transmission system and component testing. With up to 100 ports, each port configured from a choice of 196 ITU 25GHz-spaced channels, the MSL-100 is a valuable tool for evaluating channel management in next generation optical networks.
 
 
 

Overview

Power and channel selection are fully programmable, and an internal wavelength locker ensures high wavelength accuracy and stability. C-band and L-band versions are available.
The laser system is controlled either through a USB interface or via the front panel touchscreen; making the MSL-100 suitable for applications in research and development as well as in automated measurement systems, such as those used in production lines.
