Overview

This hand-held Fiber Optic Variable Attenuator is a precision handheld instrument commonly used for testing single mode fiber systems for optical system margin and linearity. Superior specifications, high productivity and remote-control capability also make this a genuine laboratory grade instrument. An additional typical application is as a passive adjustable attenuator pad in a transmission system.  

  • Easy to use, accurate & productive instrument
  • Excellent linearity and absolute loss accuracy
  • Power handling to >+30 dBm / 1000 milliwatts
  • Broadband, flat λ response
  • Low minimum insertion loss
  • Excellent ORL & PMD characteristics
  • Supplied with metal free SC, ST, LC interchangeable connectors
  • Remote control (LabWindows) software
  • Set attenuation is unaffected by power on/off status
  • Very long battery life
