What is the Maximum Input Power for Pulsed Light Measurements on the AQ6370B?

The maximum input power that the AQ6370B can measure for pulsed light measurements is +20dBm per resolution at full span, per channel. Keep in mind that this limit is applicable to an averaged power of pulsed light, not to the pulse peak power. You will need to calculate an average power with pulse width, pulse peak power, and pulse repetition rate.
