Optical Channel Drop Unit

This product has been discontinued Replacement Model(s) : CMA5 , CMA50

The technique of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing is well established and adopted worldwide as a means of increasing the traffic carrying capacity of a fiber. Optical cross connects, wavelength routing and translation, now make a typical network far more complex in construction. Identification of an individual channel and verification of the data passing over it during installation, commissioning and routine maintenance as part of a Service Level Agreement (SLA) is becoming more critical. The MN9320A Optical Channel Drop Unit is a test instrument that scans the DWDM optical signal and displays all those channels present in the form of a bar graph. Any individual channel can be selected from this display and fed to its output port which can then be connected to a protocol analyzer such as the Anritsu MP1570A for data validation and testing. Wherever the integrity of a DWDM signal must be verified, the MN9320A can be used.

Independent DWDM signal access for channels of 50 GHz spacing or higher up to data rates of 10 Gbps.

  • +10pm wavelength accuracy (typical)
  • ITU-T 50 GHz, 100 GHz or custom grid capability
  • Provides DWDM channel access to any BER tester
  • Measurement of channel wavelength and power
  • Optical output protection mode
