Optical Spectrum Analyzer

This product has been discontinued Replacement Model(s) : MS9740B

  • Improved signal-to-noise measurement with left and right noise floor averaging
  • Tracking function with tunable laser source
  • Built-in attenuator for high power optical input
  • Optional built-in light source and reference wavelength
  • VGA output connector

The MS9710B provides excellent wavelength accuracy and waveform shape. This diffraction grating Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) features improved wavelength accuracy, resolution bandwidth, and signal-to-noise averaging, covering a wide wavelength range from 600 to 1750 nm. The MS9710B features high power level accuracy, wide dynamic range, and high reception sensitivity.

The MS9710C provides similar capabilities with enhanced L-Band features:

  • Overview
    The MS9710B can measure wavelength, power level and SNR for up to 300 DWDM channels. It can also be used for PMD and EDFA noise floor measurements

  • Tunable Laser Source Tracking
    This internal function eliminates the need for an external controller to make measurements using an Anritsu TLS.

  • Internal Light Sources
    Optional SLD, white light, and reference wavelength light sources can be installed in the MS9710B to simplify measurements. Calibration with the built-in reference source is a one-button operation.

  • L-Band Measurements
    Option 15 improves wavelength accuracy, resolution, power level flatness, and linearity in the 1570 to 1620 nm  L-band region.
