Overview

This hand-held fiber optic variable attenuator is a precision handheld instrument commonly used for testing single mode fiber systems with an APC connector. Superior specifications, high productivity and remote-control capability also make this a genuine laboratory grade instrument. An additional typical application is as a passive adjustable attenuator pad in a transmission system.  

  • SM fiber, APC connector
  • Additional full-function optical power meter
  • Easy to use, accurate & productive
  • Excellent linearity & absolute accuracy
  • ISO/IEC 17025 traceable calibration 
  • Power handling to >+30 dBm / 1 Watt
  • Broadband, flat λ response
  • Low minimum insertion loss
  • Excellent ORL & PMD characteristics
  • SC, LC interchangeable connectors
  • Remote control (Labwindows) software
  • Modbus remote control protocol
  • Attenuation not affected by power on/off
