OSICS Mainframe - Modular 8-channel mainframe

Multifunction modular platform for fiber-optic component testing with up to eight pluggable modules


The OSICS multifunction modular platform offers the most flexibility and the widest selection of pluggable modules required in fiber optic component and system testing, particularly for dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) system evaluations.

Up to eight pluggable modules can be mixed and matched in a single OSICS mainframe, thereby meeting all needs for applications requiring, for example, multi-wavelength sources.

OSICS features a complete line of modules including:

Compact tunable lasers

  • OSICS T100: ultra-low SSE tunable external cavity lasers (step mode)

Compact transmission laser

  • OSICS DFB: distributed feedback laser diodes for DWDM, CWDM and LAN-WDM transmission

Broadband light sources

  • OSICS SLD: superluminescent light emitting diodes

Passive optical functions

  • OSICS SWT: optical shutters and switches
  • OSICS ATN-HP: high-power optical attenuators
  • OSICS BKR: variable back reflectors
