General Photonics has announced the PCD-005 fiber optic polarization
scrambler module, which uses advanced digital circuitry to deliver a uniform state
of polarization distribution, now over a much wider operating temperature range
that makes it more suitable for sensor field applications. It features all-fiber
technology to effectively randomize polarization states. Designed to be easily plugged
into sensor equipment or measurement instruments, it can be remotely controlled
via RS-232 to set the operation wavelength or enable/disable the scrambling operation.
While retaining dimensions and interfaces identical to those of the PCD-004, the
PCD-005 delivers low insertion loss, backreflection, and residual phase and amplitude
modulation. It can be used to eliminate polarization sensitivity in fiber optic
sensor, communication and measurement systems. Insertion loss is <0.05 dB.
