Yenista Optics, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment, has further expanded its multi-channel OSICS platform with a new Variable Back Reflector module. The "OSICS BKR" module provides a controllable back reflection of up to 55dB over the 1250 nm to 1650 nm wavelength range.
Back reflection or return loss is an intrinsic parameter in all optical systems which occurs as a result of Rayleigh scattering in optical fibers and due to the mismatch of refractive indices within optical components. Poor or open connectors are also significant contributors. Managing return loss and testing components and systems under a range of operating conditions is an important part of system design and validation. The "OSICS BKR" provides a simple solution. Further, it can be integrated with other test instruments such as light sources, optical switches and variable attenuators as part of the multi-channel OSICS platform. The modules can be controlled either manually or via the GPIB and RS-232 interfaces.
David Heard, Sales and Marketing Manager commented, "The OSICS platform is widely used throughout the fiber optics industry. Adding additional modules provides our customers with a cost effective upgrade without changing the platform and control software with which they are familiar. The module is particularly useful to stress transceivers for return loss sensitivity measurements and for PON system testing where open connectors are an issue."
Yenista Optics S.A., a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment, is proud to announce the establishment of Yenista Optics Inc. and the opening of its US office in Princeton, New Jersey, USA, on the first of October 2011. The office includes a Repair & Calibration Laboratory.
Yenista is well respected for its Tunable Laser and Tunable Filter products. The filters have the most advanced specifications on the market whereas the reliable TUNICS tunable lasers originally date back to Photonetics (later Nettest and Anritsu). The office will provide both pre- and post-sales support to its North American customers including full repair and calibration services. In addition, it will provide repair and calibration services for the large installed base of TUNICS and OSICS products manufactured in the past by Photonetics, Nettest and Anritsu. Fast turn-around times will be ensured thanks to the large stock of original replacement parts.
Yenista’s CEO Michiel van der Keur commented, "We have successfully introduced Yenista’s products on the North-American market through a partnership with JGR Services. The past two years were fundamental in promoting our portfolio and creating brand awareness. Establishing the US office will build on this foundation to provide enhanced support and services to our US customers. For the Canadian market, we will continue our partnership with JGR Services".
Yenista Optics, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic test and measurement equipment, announces the release of a new tunable laser in the 1310 nm wavelength region. The T100 model uses a new optical cavity design to provide high optical power (+6 dBm) with extremely low noise (>80 dB/0.1 nm SSER).
The combination of high power and low noise output has not been possible with conventional tunable laser designs. Yenista is the first company to overcome this limitation with its patented self-filtered external cavity laser technology. The technology is used in its TUNICS T100 models. The new O-band version operates from 1270 nm to 1340 nm with up to +6 dBm output power and a signal to spontaneous emission ratio (SSER) of over 80 dB/0.1 nm. The laser is particularly suitable for characterizing narrow bandwidth filters and as a light source for testing high speed transmission systems.
"The original or O-band, operating around 1310 nm, has been widely used for short reach telecom applications. It corresponds to the low dispersion region of standard single mode fiber but is limited to non-amplified links by the lack of optical amplifiers. With the demand for higher capacity in access and data networks there is now a resurgence of interest in this wavelength band" said Nicéphore Nicolas, Yenista’s Sales and Marketing Manager. "Engineers developing and testing components for the latest 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet and FTTH/PON networks really benefit from the performance of Yenista’s TUNICS T100 lasers."
Yenista will be demonstrating the TUNICS T100 lasers at the upcoming OFC/NFOEC exhibition at the Los Angeles Convention Center, March 8-10, booth 1113.
Yenista Optics a leading manufacturer of fiber optics test and measurement equipment for the telecoms industry is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr David Heard as Sales & Marketing Manager. David will be working with Nicephore Nicolas to expand worldwide sales and marketing activities.
David brings over 12 years’ experience in fiber optic test and measurement. He was previously at Santec where he managed their European subsidiary and was responsible for sales and marketing throughout the EMEA region. "I am very excited to join Yenista. The company has seen rapid growth since acquiring the Anritsu range of optical test instruments two years ago. The brand dating back to Photonetics is well established in Europe, has a large installed base and an excellent reputation. Yenista really understands the market and is developing new products to support the latest developments in the industry."
Yenista has been producing fiber optic products for the past 6 years. It added tunable lasers and OEM modules to its test and measurement product line through the acquisition of the former Photonics/Nettest/Anritsu product ranges in 2009. It plans to expand the range further in 2011.
CEO Michiel van der Keur commented, "We have invested heavily in updating the former Anritsu products and in the development of new instruments and have seen significant sales growth throughout 2010. I am pleased to welcome David to our team. He has an excellent technical ability and is well known in the industry. His commercial and technical experience will be invaluable to support our future growth."
