Yenista Optics variable backreflector provides back reflection up to 55 dB
The OSICS BKR variable backreflector module provides a controllable back reflection of up to 55 dB over the 1250–1650 nm wavelength range.
The OSICS BKR variable backreflector module provides a controllable back reflection of up to 55 dB over the 1250–1650 nm wavelength range. It can be integrated with other test instruments such as light sources, optical switches, and variable attenuators, and can be controlled manually or via GPIB and RS-232 interfaces.
New OSICS Module: Variable Backreflector
(Lannion, France) Yenista Optics, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment, has further expanded its multi-channel OSICS platform with a new Variable Backreflector module. The “OSICS BKR” module provides a controllable back reflection of up to 55dB over the 1250nm to 1650nm wavelength range.
Back reflection or return loss is an intrinsic parameter in all optical systems which occurs as a result of Rayleigh scattering in optical fibers and due to the mismatch of refractive indices within optical components. Poor or open connectors are also significant contributors. Managing return loss and testing components and systems under a range of operating conditions is an important part of system design and validation. The “OSICS BKR” provides a simple solution. Further, it can be integrated with other test instruments such as light sources, optical switches and variable attenuators as part of the multi-channel OSICS platform. The modules can be controlled either manually or via the GPIB and RS-232 interfaces.
David Heard, Sales and Marketing Manager commented, “The OSICS platform is widely used throughout the fiber optics industry. Adding additional modules provides our customers with a cost effective upgrade without changing the platform and control software with which they are familiar. The module is particularly useful to stress transceivers for return loss sensitivity measurements and for PON system testing where open connectors are an issue.”
About Yenista Optics
Yenista Optics, founded in 2003, designs and manufactures fiber optic test and measurement equipment for a broad range of applications. The company has its own product range which includes fixed and tunable wavelength lasers, tunable filters, variable attenuators and optical switches. It also supplies optical modules and instruments on an OEM basis. The business expanded significantly in 2009 with the acquisition of Anritsu’s laboratory optical products including the Tunics, OSICS and Xtract product ranges. Yenista Optics’ products are widely used in the telecommunications industry particularly for DWDM applications.
