The WaveAnalyzer 400A is a compact Optical Spectrum Analyzer for testing optical signals in the C- and in the C+L band of optical communications. The instrument has been designed for Research & Development purposes as well as for Production Applications.
- The WA 400A uses coherent detection technology and can display the x- and the y-Polarization separately.
- The instrument is very compact with only half a rack width and a height of 1U.
- The detachable sub-panel on the front allows easy cleaning of the internal connector.
The WA 400A can be connected through an Ethernet port to Local Area Networks and allows signal monitoring and data gathering or simply remotely controlling either via the internal webserver which can be accessed by any browser or through the integrated RESTful Application Programming Interface (API). The WA 400A supports both acquiring the IP address through DHCP and setting a fixed address.
The WA 400A integrates with II-VI’s well-known WaveAnalyzer PC software. This package offers a variety of analysis functions including Optical Signal to Noise Ratio (OSNR) measurement, Side Mode Suppression Ratio (SMSR) measurement, Multi-Channel (WDM-) Analysis, Peak detection, etc.
