AUGUST 19, 2008 -- M2 Optics (search for M2 Optics) today introduced a new, portable optical receiver that can monitor and measure the optical modulation index (OMI) of an optical carrier to optimize the performance of CATV, CCTV, and other high-quality multi-channel optical networks.
According to the company, the FOS1000A 1000 MHz Optical Receiver is designed to emulate a typical wideband optical node widely used in high-quality optical networks and can measure the OMI of an optical carrier in percent/channel or percent total. Eliminating the need for multiple instruments and optical systems analyzers when setting up, benchmarking, and maintaining transmitters, this versatile optical receiver can work with a combination of analog and digital channels.
The FOS1000A 1000 MHz Optical Receiver is capable of measuring 15 MHz to 1 GHz ±1-dB power from an optical cable and provides a 75-Ohm RF output to drive spectrum analyzers and other network devices. The device can also validate optical modulation, power, and correct percentage of power. Standard features include front panel BCD pushbuttons, controls, and a 48-character, back lit LCD.
The FOS1000A 1000 MHz Optical Receiver is priced at $8,865.00; quantity discounts are available.
