Product Code: AP206x
Manufacturer: APEX Technologies

Ideal solution for Telecommunication applications, the APEX Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) AP206x Series is equipped with the high resolution of 20 MHz/0.16 pm, as well as other resolution bandwidth from 140 MHz to 250 GHz. With two polarisation channels inside, analysis of optical signal in different polarisation axis is possible.


Available options:



  • the optical output of the built-in Tunable Laser Source (TLS), which could also be used for component analysis (tracking funciton);

  • replace the Resolution BandWidth of 20 MHz by 5 MHz 

Features:

  • Resolution from 250 GHz to 140 MHz, up to 20 MHz/0.16 pm High Resolution
  • 3 models : C Band / L Band / C&L Band
  • Dynamic range 78 dB
  • Rectangular-shape resolution filters
  • 2 channels, one per polarisation axis
  • Built-in tunable laser source
  • Component transmission/reflection analysis
  • 5 MHz resolution optional

Applications:

  • Advanced modulation formats analysis
  • Comb generator measurement
  • Laser characterisation
  • OSNR measurement
  • OFDM analysis
  • Optical sensor/component characterisation

Data handling:

  • USB connectors
  • Ethernet
  • GPIB connector
  • Sensitive screen
