QUEBEC CITY, CANADA, September 3, 2013 — EXFO Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO) (TSX: EXF) today unveiled the FLS-2800 Benchtop ITLA Tunable Laser Source, a high-power, continuous wave (CW) laser unit with narrow linewidth and high-resolution tunability. Developed jointly with Coherent Solutions, it is currently available exclusively from EXFO.
The FLS-2800 Benchtop ITLA Tunable Laser Source provides researchers and engineers with a cost-effective and versatile solution for various applications, including coherent/orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission and WDM network emulation. It is offered in single- or dual-laser configuration, with each laser being controlled independently. The front-panel knob allows the wavelength and power to be quickly and precisely adjusted.
The USB and Ethernet ports at the back of the FLS-2800 make it possible to remotely control the unit with the EXFO TLM application, which is also compatible with the IQS-2800. The TLM user interface clearly displays the laser controls and status for utmost user-friendliness and effectiveness. Plus, when automation is required, SCPI commands can be used.
For a live demonstration of the FLS-2800, visit EXFO at booth 1A10 at the China International Optoelectronic Expo, from September 4 to 7, 2013, at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center.
