OLCHING, Germany, Feb. 5, 2015 — The MAP-200 from JDSU is a measuring station with a modular design for the characterization of fiber optic components and systems in research, development and production. The mWAVE-A1 module is a multiwavelength meter used to detect the optical power levels and center wavelengths of densely packed optical signals at up to 2 GHz spacing with the help of coherent detection technology. The mHROSA-A1 spectrum analyzer module combines the multiwavelength meter with a high-resolution optical spectrum analyzer. In addition to detection and measurement of the power levels, the module also makes it possible to obtain a graphical representation of the spectrum. Typical applications include the characterization of dense-wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) transmission systems, optical sources, transponders and line cards. Laser Components GmbH is the distributor.
