Variable Optical Attenuator
Nov 2009Santec Corp.Request Info
KOMAKI, AICHI, Japan, Nov. 19, 2009 – Santec Corp. has announced the availability of a new variable optical attenuator with low wavelength dependence. It is designed for applications where multiple wavelengths are attenuated simultaneously in a dense wavelength division multiplexing-type transmission system.
A typical example is providing gain control for an erbium-doped fiber amplifier. The low power-consuming device is a modified version of the company’s MOVA-1 microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-based variable optical attenuator.
It is compact, low cost and electronically adjustable using a simple analog voltage. It has an attenuation range of up to 40 dB, a response time of <10 ms, low insertion loss and low polarization dependence. It is fully qualified to Telcordia GR-1221 and GR-63.
The RoHS-compliant attenuator is suitable for use in power control and equalization in multichannel systems, electronically adjustable, analog voltage, Telcordia GR-1221, GR-63
