The Agilent optical power heads are specially designed for low PDL, low spectral ripple and high return loss and are used for optical component test. The 81628B high power head has a built-in calibrated integrating sphere and uses threaded fiber adapters, like for example the 81000FA. The optical heads have to be operated with the single (Agilent 81618A) or dual (Agilent 81619A) interface modules.
These modules are controlled in any configuration in any of the mainframes 8163B, 8164B and 8166B. A highly flexible connector interface palette addresses connectorized, bare fiber or open beam applications.
- Integrating sphere for high power levels of 40dBm
- This measurement setup ensures the distribution of the high power equally to all parts of the sphere avoiding partial hot spots, which guarantess long lifetime and uncompromised reliability
Key Performance Specifications
