EXFO FTB-5230 1250 to 1650 nm Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) Module

The Exfo FTB-5230 is a powerful optical spectrum analyzer (OSA) designed to meet the challenges of DWDM applications. With the increasing sophistication of communication networks comes the need for equally powerful test and measurement equipment designed to meet the challenges of DWDM. Whether testing involves manufacturing, installing and commissioning network fiber, or managing, maintaining, monitoring and troubleshooting performance elements, EXFO’s FTB-5230 Optical Spectrum Analyzers (OSAs) are ready to handle any situation. Since CWDM systems generally use uncooled lasers, whose typical wavelength drift is 0.1 nm per degree Celsius, it is critical to track the evolution and drift of the lasers’ central wavelength. And since path attenuation can significantly vary within a single channel, passband drift also creates power drift. This is why it becomes extremely important to monitor—simultaneously for all CWDM channels—the evolution of peak power and wavelength over time. The FTB-5230 Optical Spectrum Analyzer’s Drift mode functionalities makes this an easy task. Specifications. Wavelength range (nm): 1250 to 1650. Resolution bandwidth FWHM (nm): <= 0.1.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the EXFO FTB-5230. 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.

Related Optical Terms and Definitions. For a complete list go to our  Terms and Definitions Page.

A change in the optical frequency caused by direct modulation of the laser. A chirp is a signal in which the frequency increases ('up-chirp') or decreases ('down-chirp') with time. In some sources, the term chirp is used interchangeably with sweep signal.

The extent to which optical power from one signal path is prevented from reaching another signal path.

Polarization Extinction Ratio
Polarization Extinction Ratio is the ratio of optical power in the slow axis of the polarization maintaining fiber to optical power in the fast axis within a specified wavelength range.

Sidemode Suppression Ratio
Sidemode Suppression Ratio is the ratio of average signal power to the optical power of the highest sidemode within a distance from 0.1 to 6 GHz to the signal’s optical frequency, expressed in dB.

Wavelength Stability
Wavelength Stability is the change of wavelength during given time span, expressed as ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum of all actual wavelengths.
