Optical Spectrum Analyzer Ogles Telecom Devices

Yokogawa’s AQ6360 benchtop optical spectrum analyzer is groomed for production testing of datacom and telecom devices such as laser diodes, optical transceivers, and optical amplifiers. According to its maker, the instrument offers a sweep speed twice that of other OSA models designed for R&D purposes, thus improving production throughput. It also features a free-space optical input, which supports both single-mode and multimode fiber testing.

•             wavelength range from 1200 to 1650 nm

•             selectable wavelength resolution from 0.1 to 2 nm

•             wavelength accuracy of ±0.02 nm

•             dynamic range of 55 dB

•             measurement range from +20 to -80 dBm


The AQ6360 incorporates a unique type of monochromator with a simpler design that is lighter in weight than that fitted to earlier Yokogawa models. As a result, it does not require re-alignment if the instrument is moved. For more insights, an AQ6360 datasheet awaits your discerning eye.
