Adaptif Upgrades PMD Analyzer
HAMBURG, Germany -- Adaptif Photonics GmbH (www.adaptif.de) has announced the
release of important upgrades to their successful A2000 Component Analyser
family. These upgrades boost throughput and accuracy in combination with seamless
integration into automated manufacturing systems.
A new internal referencing capability greatly improves accuracy and precision for
PMD/DGD, PDL and insertion loss measurements. The C and L bands can be swept
within 8 seconds with an accuracy of 0.01dB for PDL and a repeatability for PMD of
well below 10 femtoseconds.
Adaptif’s proprietary measurement scheme is based on the JME method, delivering accurate results even when operating in harsh environments. A great robustness against fiber movements and drifts eliminates the need for taping fiber patch cords to the table. The new A2000 units include an industrial PC with touch screen and an intuitive user interface. These new test instruments produce high throughput in production test stations, dramatically reducing test costs without compromising measurement quality.
Integration of these products into manufacturing systems is supported through all popular automation and remote control interfaces. According to Dr. Harald Rosenfeldt, Adaptif’s CTO, “These new instruments introduce a new level of performance in optical component test and verification which has not been available before.”
