EXFO FVA-60B Optical Variable Attenuator

The Exfo FVA-60B Variable Attenuator performs just as well in a laboratory environment as it does in the field, offering three attenuation display modes. This handheld variable attenuator performs just as well in a laboratory environment as it does in the field. Superior specifications (±0.15 dB linearity from 2.5 to 70 dB, 0.05 dB resolution and ±0.10 dB repeatability) make it the variable attenuator of choice for various applications. For lab or field work flexibility, choose the Exfo FVA-60B Variable Attenuator. The Exfo FVA-60B offers three attenuation display modes: Absolute (including insertion loss), Relative (in reference to 0.00 dB level) and x + b (arbitrary value). Program mode: Cycles through a repeatable sequence of up to 60 attenuation steps, pausing for one second or up to 60 hours at a time. The Program mode is particularly suited to accelerated bit-error-rate (BER) testing. Fourteen available wavelengths: Matches your source wavelength to the nearest 10 nm for unbeatable accuracy. Variable scanning speed: Scans the complete attenuation range at four different speeds according to the selected step size (0.05, 0.20 or 1.00 dB/step and variable step size). Operate the Exfo FVA-60B remotely from your PC using the standard RS-232 interface and control codes. Program software solutions are adapted to your testing needs. The Exfo FVA-60B features three complementary power sources for extended operation: a rechargeable NiCd battery, a 9 V alkaline backup battery and an AC adapter/charger for continuous operation. The Exfo FVA-60B enables consistent operation in various manual or automated testing situations, such as BER testing, system testing and acceptance, power meter calibration and verification, optical margin analysis, system loss simulation, as well as field, manufacturing and R&D applications.

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.

Broadband Source (BBS)
A Broadband Source is a spectrally large source that emits a signal which contains a continuous range of frequencies with a broad optical bandwidth (usually 100 nm or more). Sometimes called a white light source, there are two different meanings of this term. Visible white light and a source which does not necessarily emit in the visible spectral region.

Coherence is the pattern and or relationships of waves due to phase properties.

Linearity is the relative difference between the displayed power ratio, Dx/D0, and the actual (true) power ratio Px/P0 caused by changing the displayed power level from the reference level, D0, to an arbitrary displayed level, Dx.

Power Flatness Over Modulation
When changing the wavelength and modulation frequency, and measuring the differences between actual and displayed power levels (in dB), the power flatness is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Singlemode fiber
Singlemode Fiber has a small core, only about 9 microns, and is used for telephony and CATV with laser sources at 1300 and 1550 nm. It can go very long distances at very high speeds. 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.
