CT400: Passive Optical Component Tester
In less than 5 seconds, the transmission curves of passive optical components can be characterized over the wavelength range from 1260 to 1650 nm with the CT400. The unit tests directly a DUT (Device Under Test) with up to 4 output ports and can be interfaced with external detectors for higher port count DUTs.
The CT400 Optical Component Tester requires at least one tunable laser with sweeping capability and an external PC. The CT400 software provides customers with a convenient graphical interface and data analysis features. A Labview driver is available as well as a binder for scripting languages such as C and C++ so that customers can easily integrate the CT400 in their test benches.
Note that the full wavelength range from 1260 to 1650 nm is obtained with the CT400 when using multiple lasers. The unit switches automatically between the subsequent lasers enabling seamless scans over the full range.
