APRIL 28, 2010 -- DiCon Fiberoptics has announced a new optical attenuator module for the GP750 test system. The fiber-optic test system is designed to automate optical switches and fiber-optic attenuators with complete plug-and-play modularity and easy control options. The new fiber-optic attenuator module is designed for use with singlemode fiber and can support up to eight optical attenuators in a single module.

“The new optical attenuator module will be useful for test setups that require power equalization between multiple channels, OSNR measurements, or power adjustments for EDFAs,” said Robert Schleicher, vice president of product development. “It is designed for use with the GP750, an ideal platform for automating the testing of fiber-optic systems. The GP750 and its family of plug-in modules provide a useful, time-saving system for production or research environments.”

The maximum attenuation level can be specified as needed up to 40 dB of attenuation, and can also be specified for narrowband or broadband use in the 1290-1330 nm, 1530-1570 nm, and/or 1570-1610 nm wavelength ranges. In addition, DiCon also offers other optical attenuator modules such as a dynamic power equalizer version, which has built-in detectors that are used for maintaining constant power levels, channel to channel.
