EXFO IQ-203 Optical Test System Control Unit

The Exfo IQ-203 Optical Test System Control Unit, includes top-of-the-line scalable hardware such as a modular platform, expansion units and a complete range of plug-in test modules. The IQ test modules cover the optical T&M spectrum, from simple insertion loss testers all the way up to sophisticated PMD analyzers. You get all this in a system that is up to speed for comprehensive test result analysis and that is mobilized for GPIB and network communications. As testing needs expand, successive six-slot IQ-206 Expansion Units can be added. The Exfo IQ-203 Control Unit can hold up to three test modules and has a VGA screen (640 pixels x 480 pixels). The test modules include; Power Meters: IQ-1100 Power Meter, IQ-1200 4-Channel Power Meter, IQ-1500 Calibration Power Meter, IQ-1600 High-Speed Power Meter. Light Sources: IQ-2100 Light Source, IQ-2300 ASE Broadband Source, IQ-2400 WDM Laser Source, IQ-2600B Tunable Laser Source. Test: IQ-3100 Variable Attenuator, IQ-3200 Return Loss Meter, IQ-3300 Variable Reflector, IQ-3400 PDL/OL Meter, IQ-5100 Polarization Controller, IQ-5240 Optical Spectrum Analyzer, IQ-5310 Wavelength Meter, IQ-5320 Multi-Wavelength Meter, IQ-5500 PMD Analyzer, IQ-6100 EDFA, IQ-7000 OTDR Series, IQ-9100 Optical Switch and IQ-9600 Utility Modules. Options. N6: Additional memory: 32 MB (total of 64 MB). N8: Additional memory: 96 MB (total of 128 MB). I1: GPIB device card. I2: GPIB controller card. RS: Additional RS-232 port on request.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the EXFO IQ-203. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Optical power referenced to 1 millimatt

Multimode Fiber
Multimode Fiber has a large core (almost always 62.5 microns - a micron is one one millionth of a meter - but sometimes 50 microns) and is used with LED sources at wavelengths of 850 and 1300 nm for short distance, lower speed networks like LANs. Both multimode and singlemode fiber have an outside diameter of 125 microns - about 5 thousandths of an inch - just slightly larger than a human hair.

Power Repeatability
Power Repeatability is the random uncertainty in reproducing the power level after changing and re-setting the power level. The power repeatability is ± half the span (in dB) between the highest and lowest actual power. Note: - The long-term power repeatability can be obtained by taken the power repeatability and power stability into account.

Refractive Index
The refractive index or index of refraction of a substance is a measure of the speed of light in that substance. It is expressed as a ratio of the speed of light in vacuum relative to that in the considered medium. The velocity at which light travels in vacuum is a physical constant, and the fastest speed at which energy or information can be transferred. However, light travels slower through any given material, or medium, that is not vacuum.

Total insertion loss
A measure of the loss of light within an optical component
