JGR Optics Inc. has announced the availability of its OA5 Optical Programmable Attenuators. The OA5 offers an attenuation range from 50 to 100 dB and resolution of ± 0.01 dBm to enable technicians to apply precise control of output power for bit error rate (BER) tests or channel equalization in WDM systems.

There are five models in the OA5 Optical Programmable Attenuator family. The standard models cover the 1200-nm to 1700-nm wavelength range and accept signals of up to +23 dBm. Each model is available in singlemode and multimode configurations. JGR also offers two high-power models for applications requiring up to +37 dBm. Finally, a Flexcore model covering the wavelength range of 900 nm to 1100 nm is also available.

All OA5 attenuators can be controlled locally using the front panel keypad or remotely via GPIB, RS-232, or USB.

“Optical attenuators remain key instruments in every research lab and on any production floor. Today’s attenuators however, need to be faster, more reliable, and more economical than their predecessors. The OA5 is the answer to all those requirements with its high-end specifications,” said Pierre Leonard, president and CEO of JGR Optics.
