Introducing the IQS-1600/IQS-1700/OHS-1700 Power Meter and Optical Head Series, EXFO’s modular answer to all your power measurement requirements. Designed for the IQS-500 Intelligent Test System, these power meters deliver speed, accuracy and flexibility in a platform-based solution. Power, simplicity and flexibility are what you get when you combine up to two OHS-1700 High-Performance Optical Heads with the IQS-1700 High-Performance Power Meter interface module. This patent-pending combination allows you to move the power measurement sensor to the device under test (DUT) for efficient testing. Such a design allows a Continuous-mode peak acquisition speed of 5208 samples/s over an 80 dB range, while maintaining a 300 μs stabilization time. Each optical head is individually calibrated, allowing you to interchange heads on a module or between test stations, without compromising on accuracy.
The flexible graphical user interface (GUI) developed by EXFO allows easy control of the power meter settings. Get instant access to software buttons, such as those used to launch an acquisition, perform a min/max signal tracking or activate the Graph mode.
The IQS-1700’s unique, patented design saves time, cuts costs and significantly enhances throughput with its Continuous-mode peak-acquisition speed of 5208 acquisitions per second. Its 80 dB range and 300 μs stabilization time allows you to simultaneously measure high and low signals on up to two channels. Test more components with a single, small-footprint module, thanks to the IQS-1700 High-Performance Power Meter’s two-channel capability.
The power meter application offers one or two virtual channels, enabling real-time power ratio calculations and display. This is most useful when you need to actively reference an optical source that drifts over time, or to compare two channels with theoretically identical power.
