Multi-Photodetector Array MPA-100 (:228KB)

The MPA-100 is a highly integrated rack mountable model of pigtailed photo-detector array. Multi-channels optical power from MPO or MTP connectors are detected by a photo-detector array. 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 dimension is (W) 482.6x(D) 430x(H) 44 mm. 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 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 (Ex. fibers input&output, a partial 5% tapped power detection) is also available in custom.

1/10 Per-channel cost compared with typical optical power meters

  • The voltage output type MPA-100 provides excellent cost-performance compare with standard multiple optical power meters in 1/10 scale of cost with user self-calibrating.

1/10 Small mount space compared with typical optical power meters

  • The highly integrated MPA-100 products save the mount space less than 1/10 compared typical optical power meters.
