Bristol Instruments Introduces NuView Optical Spectrum Analyzer Software for its 438 Series Multi-Wavelength Meter

June 7, 2021
The 438 Series Multi-Wavelength Meter simultaneously measures the wavelength, power, and OSNR of as many as 1000 discrete optical signals.

VICTOR, NEW YORK June 7, 2021 –Bristol Instruments now offers software that converts its 438 Series Multi-Wavelength Meter into a high-resolution optical spectrum analyzer. This results in the most complete analysis of optical transceivers and WDM signals.

The 438 Series Multi-Wavelength Meter simultaneously measures the wavelength, power, and OSNR of as many as 1000 discrete optical signals. With features such as high accuracy, measurement rate up to 10 Hz, and a broad operational range of 1000 to 1680 nm, the model 438 provides the most precise, efficient, and versatile WDM wavelength testing available. For a more detailed analysis, the NuView software generates and displays an optical spectrum with a resolution better than 10 GHz (0.08 nm at 1550 nm). This provides the ability to determine transceiver side-mode suppression ratio and to discriminate between closely spaced WDM channels.

“We strive to make our products as versatile as possible,” said Dr. Brian Samoriski, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Bristol Instruments. “The model 438, coupled with the NuViewsoftware, offers this versatility for our customers who need to precisely characterize WDM lasers or systems.”
