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 heads come with a magnetic D-shape adapter and provide a safe stand. 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.
Special Calibration Options
- ±1.5% uncertainty with special calibration
- ±0.8% uncertainty with PTB calibration
- Low relative uncertainty reduces the impact of connectorizing and fiber handling and leads to a robust test setup
- The large area detector is less susceptible for connector misalignment and guarantees highly repeatable measurement results. Lower power per mm² makes the optical head more suitable for high power measurements and guarantees better linearity
