New! Optical Component Analyzer [Demonstration]

We’ve taken our best-selling high performance tunable laser and made a fast scanning (up to 20 Hz) for optical component characterization. The Optical Component Analyzer provides high speed, high resolution and accurate measurements. It optimizes both optical alignment and integrated testing for use in both R&D and production environments.

  • High speed measurement(up to 20Hz)
  • High wavelength resolution
  • High wavelength accuracy (including gas cell)

New! Swept Test System

The Santec Swept Test System has been developed to streamline photonic testing, providing a complete solution where high-speed analysis, along with high resolution and accuracy are key. Combining one of Santec tunable lasers (TSL-710/ TSL-550/ TSL-510) with a Santec optical power meter (MPM-200), a polarization control unit (PCU-100) and custom software, the complete Swept Test System optimizes WDL and PDL measurement for use in both R&D and production environments.

  • Real-time power referencing
  • Rescaling algorithm
  • Multi-channel measurement is available.
  • Supporting LabVIEW control software

New! Programmable Wavelength&Bandwidth Tunable Filter OTF-980

The OTF-980 is a versatile programmable optical tunable filter that allows simultaneous and independent tuning of center wavelength and bandwidth over C & L bands. The OTF-980 is built with novel free-space optics combined with an ultra-fine tuning mechanism to ensure precise filter control and a flat-top passband shape. The OTF-980 is controlled either through a Ethernet/GPIB/USB interface with the industry standard SCPI command set or via the front panel touchscreen.

  • Wavelength range:
    C&L-band 1525-1610nm
  • Bandwidth adjustable range:
  • Flat-top filter shape with steep filter slope: 1000dB/nm
  • Peak search function
  • Touchscreen and GPIB/Ethernet/USB control interfaces

New! Multi-Photodetector Array MPA-100

The highly integrated MPA-100 is available up to 80 channels with an excellent cost performance and small mount space. The MPA-100 is useful for many 40GbE/100GbE applications, such as testing and monitoring of transceivers (SR4, SR10, LR4, and ER4) for data communications, broadband / CATV, and telecommunications. Tap-PD model (input & output optical fibers and partial tapped power detection) is also available in custom.

  • Multi-channels: 32, 48, 64, 72, and 80 ch
  • Operating wavelength range: 850nm or 1260-1610nm
  • Optical input range: -50 ~ +3 dBm per channel
  • Optical noise limit: -63dBm @1550nm
  • High-density MPO or MTP connectors
  • Dimension: (W)482.6x(D)430x(H)44mm. 1U Size
