Santec Corp. has introduced the MSL-100 Multi-Port Wavelength Selectable Laser System for DWDM transmission system and optical component test applications. The system offers up to 100 ports, each of which can be configured from a library of 196 ITU 25-GHz-spaced channels.

Santec Corp. has introduced the MSL-100 Multi-Port Wavelength Selectable Laser System for DWDM transmission system and optical component test applications. The system offers up to 100 ports, each of which can be configured from a library of 196 ITU 25-GHz-spaced channels.

The MSL-100 is designed to aid in the evaluation of channel management in next-generation fiber-optic networks, both in R&D and production environments. It also can be used in coherent communications/local oscillator and optical amplifier testing applications.

The system comprises a mainframe that can support up to 20 tunable lasers (ports), and expansion frames that can each add up to 40 extra ports. Operators can program power and channel selection, while an internal wavelength locker ensures wavelength accuracy and stability, Santec says. C-Band and L-Band versions are available.

Other MSL-100 features include:

  • Tuning available with 1MHz resolution
  • Narrow linewidth
  • Output power > +15 dBm
  • Low relative intensity noise (RIN)
  • Touchscreen or USB control interfaces
