Outstanding Performance

Multichannel Optical Power Monitor


Up to 80-channel monitoring in 1U x 19-inch size

MPA-100 is a highly integrated rack mountable model of pigtailed photo-detectors. Multi-channel optical power from MPO or MTP connectors are measured. Photo-detectors of Silicon type for 850 nm range and InGaAs type for 1260 - 1610 nm are available. The detected photo-current is converted into a voltage output using a 16-bit multi-channel DAQ interface. The dimensions are (W) 482.6 x (D) 430 x (H) 44 mm.




The highly integrated MPA-100 is available up to 80 channels with an excellent cost performance and small footprint. The MPA-100 is useful for many 40 GbE / 100 GbE applications, such as testing and monitoring of transceivers (SR4, SR10, LR4, and ER4) for data communications, broadband / CATV, and telecommunications. Tap-PD model (Eg. a partial 5 % tapped power detection) is also available with customization.

1/10 Per-channel cost compared with typical optical power meters.
  • By packing more into the MPA-100 and sharing electrical circuitry provides excellent cost-performance compare with standard multiple optical power meters. 
1/10 Smaller footprint compared with typical optical power meters
  • Leveraging Santec arrayed photo detector technology, we save you space in this rack mounted system.
