The PROLITE-60 is the result of intense research work associated with the development of the latest optical communication systems.
A priority for telecommunication operators all over the world is to make their already existing optical networks more efficient. The first step is to increase their capacity. This can be achieved by simultaneously using more wavelengths to transport the information.
One of the biggest handicaps for implementing this type of system is the cost of the test equipment required to launch the projects. When numerous wavelengths share one single fibre, the optical power meters do not usually provide much information about the problems that can be affecting each wavelength. The measurements
are not wavelength selective. An optical spectrum analyser is required to check the output of a fibre when, for example, eight laser sources are used.
The PROLITE-60 is the first optical spectrum analyzer that is truly portable, rugged, and battery-operated at a really attractive price.
The PROLITE-60 is also suitable for many other applications. Using the various available options, it is suitable for reflectometry, analysis of materials, analysis of fibre sensors, and testing of photonic devices such as filters, attenuators, couplers, isolators, and other optical components.
- Measurements can be stored in memory for later display and comparisons
- When portions of the signal are displayed, a reference display can be viewed in an insert, showing the whole spectrum and the part that is magnified
- A double marker shows:
- In the first position: the wavelength and optic power measured at the first marker
- In the second position: the wavelength and difference in power between the first marker and the second marker
