BKR: Variable Reflector
The BKR module integrates a variable reflector that can be set from 3 to 55 dB and operates throughout a large wavelength range. The OSICS BKR emulates reflectance that normally occurs from all optical interfaces within fiber optic systems. It is the perfect tool in R&D to test prototypes and see how their operation is affected by undesired back-reflection. It could also be used in large PON/WDM test-bed to stress transmitters and receivers in the system.
