The optical spectrum analyser halves evaluation times

16-04-2019 | Anritsu | Test & Measurement

Anritsu has launched the new Spectrum Analyser MS9740B which has been produced for evaluating the output characteristics of optical active devices used by optical communications systems. The device keeps the same functions, measurement-sensitivity performance, and size as the predecessor MS9740A while reducing measurement processing times by 50%, further increasing production-line efficiency by optimising the optical receiver bandwidth settings, most commonly used by customers. This performance upgrade cuts optical active device inspection times and improves mass production-line efficiency.

The benchtop Optical Spectrum Analyser features wide dynamic range, high resolution, and fast sweep speeds over a wavelength range of 600nm to 1750nm. The device supports multimode fibre input and is perfect for manufacturing and evaluating 850nm band VCSEL modules.



Moreover, the device retains optical active device (LD-Module, DFB-LD, FP-LD, LED, WDM and Optical Amplifier (NF and Gain) measurement menu screens for evaluating devices. The device supports all-at-once measurements of key evaluation items, such as optical centre wavelength, level, OSNR, spectrum width, etc., and displays these results on one screen.
