New! High Performance Tunable Laser TSL-550

Santec introduces the latest in their series of high performance tunable lasers, the TSL-550. The TSL-550 features wide, high resolution, mode-hop free tuning with an output that combines both high power and high signal-to-noise ratio.

  • Wide tuning range within 1260-1680nm
  • High output power +10dBm
  • High signal-to-noise ratio 90dB/0.1nm
  • High wavelength accuracy
    (Type A: ±20pm, Type C: ±5pm)

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
