FTB-5230S OSA: flexible and easy to use

The FTB-5230S is an entry-level optical spectrum analyzer that is ideal for a variety of field applications, including DWDM and CWDM network commissioning and troubleshooting. It includes all the typical OSAcapabilities:

  • Power and wavelength measurements
  • WDM and drift mode
  • OSNR testing according to IEC 61280-2-9 (interpolation method)
  • Offline post-processing

Users can quickly learn to operate the FTB-5230S, because it features an intuitive Windows XP-based interface. The FTB-5230S can also handle a lot of power, up to 23 dBm per channel, ideal for modern cable operator networks.

FTB-5230S-OCA: an attractive OSA alternative

The FTB-5230S-OCA is a perfect compromise between an OSA and a channel analyzer. Integrating the best of both product types, this tool offers the most important spectrum analysis capabilities (power and central wavelength measurements), as well as high-power measurements up to 23 dBm per channel, for the price of an advanced channel analyzer. Designed for simplicity in the field, it keeps settings to a minimum. It has also been optimized for a number of multiwavelength applications (DWDM, CWDM, DWDM over CWDM and CFP power measurements).
