In the acceptance inspection of purchased parts and the shipping inspection of optical products, it is repeatedly tested whether the DUT meets the specifications. However, complicated tasks such as setting measurement conditions, recording measured values, and judging pass / fail must be repeated. In such a case, by automating the measurement, analysis, and judgment processes, inspection time can be shortened and judgment accuracy can be improved.
The applicable models are equipped as standard with a template function that makes it easy to make pass / fail judgments and comparisons with reference data, and a program function that makes automatic measurement easy. By utilizing these functions, work efficiency of repeated tests can be improved without using an external PC.
The template function automatically judges pass / fail by comparing the measured waveform with the preset reference data.
Create and register the template data (upper and lower limit lines) that will serve as the judgment criteria. OSA uses the registered template data to automatically determine whether the measured waveform is within the criteria. The pass / fail judgment result is displayed as "PASS" or "FAIL" on the screen, and can also be acquired by a remote command. For visual inspection, the template can be used to display a reference spectrum as a guide to the measured waveform. Templates can be easily created on OSA or PC, and can be saved and read as CSV format files, so multiple OSAs can share the template.
This is a function to create and register a series of measurement procedures as a program in advance and perform automatic measurement by itself.
Creating a program is very easy because you can select the command corresponding to the OSA key as if you were actually operating OSA. In addition, commands for loop control, condition judgment, variables, four arithmetic operations, parameter input, screen output, etc. are prepared for advanced programming.
It also supports remote control via ETHERNET or RS232, allowing direct control of external devices such as connected light sources and optical switches. Complex measurements such as repeated measurements while changing external measurement conditions can be easily performed without a PC.
High performance with a 20 picometer wavelength resolution supporting 25 GHz DWDM spacing and 40G/100G applications, this OSA also supports non-Telecom applications with a wavelength range from 600nm to 1700nm.
Popular TELECOM wavelength Range of 600nm to1700nm makes this an ideal model for Telecommunications applications for both singlemode and multi-mode optics.
New for 2010 includes both High Performance and Standard Performance versions.
High Performance LONG WAVELENGTH
The AQ6375B is a bench-top optical spectrum analyzer covering the long wavelengths, 1200 to 2400 nm, with the added benefits of gas purging input ports / output ports, a built-in cut filter for high order diffracted light, and a novel double speed mode which increases the sweep speed up to 2 times compared to the standard sweep mode.
MWIR WAVELENGTH with internal gas purge and cut filter
The AQ6376 is the latest version of our bench-top optical spectrum analyzer extending the wavelength coverage well beyond the NIR range of our previous models into the MWIR region from 1500 to 3400 nm.
Popular applications include the detection of gases such as carbon oxides (COx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and hydrocarbon gas (CxHy) for environmental studies.
Unique LONG wavelength range of 1200 to 2400 nm makes this the world's first and only OSA specifically designed for use in advance applications such as Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (CO2) gas detection and LIDAR.
Dedicated SHORT wavelength Range of 350nm to1200nm allows this model to accurately measure the visible spectrum of 380nm to 780nm for bio-sciences and beyond. It is also a popular tool for measuring 1064nm Nd:YAG, DPSS Laser sources.
