Anritsu Company introduces optical spectrum analyzer with fast sweep time

Anritsu Company introduces the MS9740A Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) with a sweep time of 0.2 seconds, precise measurement capability, and ease of use.

MARCH 31, 2010 -- Anritsu Company introduces the MS9740A Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) with a sweep time of 0.2 seconds, precise measurement capability, and ease of use. Covering 600 nm to 1750 nm, The MS9740A can be used in a variety of applications, including measuring optical devices, conducting WDM and EDFA signal analysis, and evaluating optical level variations.

The MS9740A OSA has a minimum resolution of 30 pm and dynamic range of >58 dB. The combination of wide dynamic range and high resolution makes the MS9740A OSA well suited to evaluating narrow band filters and conducting OSNR analysis of WDM signals.

Embedded application software helps ensure accuracy and repeatability, improve production line evaluation efficiency, and simplify the measurement process, says a representative. With the software, users can conduct several types of measurements, including DWDM analysis; DFB, FP-LD, LED, and EDFA analysis; and optical module analysis, such as XFP and SFP+, directly from the touch screen of the MS9740A OSA.

A single MS9740A supports measurements for both singlemode (SM) and multimode (MM) fiber, creating an all-in-one tool for evaluating both SM and MM optical devices. In addition, the MS9740A OSA has optical return loss of <35 dB to suppress the impact of backscatter on the device under test (DUT).

The MS9740A OSA weighs less than 15 kg, and consumes 75 VA. An 8.4-inch LCD displays waveforms and results.The MS9740A OSA has a U.S. price of $24,000.
