  • High-speed data sampling
  • Flexible analog output settings
  • Low polarization dependence measurement
  • Large light-receiving diameter ideal for spatial light and multi-core fiber measurements
  • Data logging function
  • Stability measurement function
  • MIN/MAX/DEF measurement function
  • Analog output function

A variety of optical power fluctuation

A variety of waveform evaluation functions are included. These functions make it possible to display and record waveforms directly, whereas in the past a device such as an O/E converter or oscilloscope was required.

Included Functions

  • Real time waveform display
  • Enlarge or reduce displayed waveform
  • Calculate data between cursors
  • Display measurement value at cursor position
  • Save screenshot

Obtain long-term stability measurement results without using a PC

Obtain long-term stability measurement results without using a PC
The stability function can be used to obtain stability data over a 24-hour period, and to save the obtained data to USB storage. This function eliminates the need to write a data acquisition program operating through the GP-IB, LAN, or USB.
