The FTBx-5245/5255 is an easy-to-use OSA offering a wide range of measurement modes tailored to the needs of users working in R&D and manufacturing.
Make sure that your transmitters are within specifications. With the DFB Laser Analysis feature, you can characterize a DFB laser source for central wavelength, peak power, bandwidth, SMSR, and much more.
Automatically characterize Fabry-Perot lasers for central wavelength, RMS width and full-width half-max (FWHM).
With the advent of larger spectral content through the implementation of 100G+ signals, knowing the bandwidth of a given filter is critical. The Spectral Transmittance software feature compares the filtered wavelength to the nominal one, showing insertion loss, channel isolation and bandwidth at different power levels.
The FTBx-5245/5255 family offers the most comprehensive set of OSNR measurement methods in the industry, from the IEC 61280-2-9 method for 10G signals, all the way up to IEC 61282-12 method for coherent signals, as well as in-service approaches for 100G+ signals on live networks.
The new FTBx-5255 is the only OSA on the market to address all applications in a single module:
It is possible to control the OSA remotely with SCPI commands for the WDM, Fabry-Perot, DFB and spectral transmittance modes.
