The PCD-005 fiber-optic polarization scrambler module is designed to provide an expanded temperature range of -5° to 65°C. Features include insertion loss of <0.05 dB, optical power handling of >1000 mW, and an RS-232 control option. It uses advanced digital circuitry to deliver uniform SOP distribution. All-fiber technology effectively randomizes polarization states.

General Photonics' Polarization Scrambler module uses a breakthrough all-fiber technology to effectively randomize polarization states. This module is designed to be easily plugged into sensor equipment or measurement instruments with minimal development effort. The PCD-005 is a more advanced version of our popular PCD-004 and PCD-003 modules. Its advanced digital circuitry delivers the uniform SOP distribution familiar to users of the earlier modules over a much wider operation temperature range, making it better suited for sensor field applications. The PCD-005 can be remote controlled via RS-232 to set the operation wavelength or enable/ disable the scrambling operation. While retaining dimensions and interfaces identical to those of the PCD-004, the PCD-005 delivers superior performance with extremely low insertion loss, back reflection, and residual phase and amplitude modulation.
