Product Overview

When the optical power changes quickly, accurately, and quickly capturing the optical power value is a great challenge for optical power meters When traditional optical power meters cannot meet the requirements of high speed and accurate measurement, high speed optical power meters have emerged Traditional optical power meters take up a lot of time in power value integration and range switching in order to meet the requirements of measuring numerical accuracy and large dynamic range Therefore, they cannot quickly and accurately output effective optical power values Therefore, they cannot meet the application requirements of high speed automatic testing systems and high speed monitoring systems

Typical applications

The key application of high speed optical power meters in wavelength scanning testing of optical passive devices, combined with tunable light sources

In the rapid scanning testing of passive devices (such as DWDM, AWG, WSS, etc.), spectrum isolation is a key link in measuring the multiplexing of the device It will determine the crosstalk of the signal at different wavelengths, evaluate the insertion loss of the specified wavelengths, and suppress the isolation or routing of wavelengths to other positions, which is an important indicator
