Overview

Improved Production Efficiency Reduces Measurement and Inspection Time

The MS9740A is a benchtop optical spectrum analyzer covering 600 nm to 1750 nm. The MS9740A offers high-performance optical resolution and high-speed measurements to support the needs of device and component manufacturers.

Waveform data can be measured and transmitted to external control equipment within 0.2s -- a 5x improvement over previous Anritsu models.

This enables optical device manufacturers to reduce costs and time for testing and analysis by:

  • Improving sweep speed (measurement time), and
  • Accelerating data transfer to control equipment after measurement

Combine these overall improvements with the ability to do basic analysis, and the result is excellent return on investment and improved productivity.


  • Measurement of passive optical devices in <0.2s(5nm) reduces total analysis time
  • Dedicated applications for evaluating active optical devices
  • Excellent cost performance
  • Dynamic range performance ≥60 dB (0.4 nm from peak wavelength)
  • 30 pm minimum resolution bandwidth
  • Supports SM and MM fibers
  • Lightweight, 50% less power consumption
