Electronically controlled. Center wavelength and bandwidth can both be set precisely and independently. Covers all key wavelengths from 1260 nm to 1650 nm and bandwidths from 32 pm (4 GHz) to 5 nm.
The XTA-50 tunable filter is the reference tool for channel selection or even sub-band extraction thanks to its adjustable bandwidth in combination with very steep edges:
The extremely sharp edges ensure a clean cut between the signal and the adjacent channels or noise, while the flat-top square shape ensures data integrity. The filters offer the highest selectivity available on the market and allow for many new fiber-optic transmission experiments.
For efficient operation, it has a user-friendly touch screen interface with four menus:
