   ANDO AQ-3140 (AQ3140)   Description / Specification:    
ANDO AQ-3140 Optical Variable Attenuator

The Ando AQ-3140 is a highly precise optical variable attenuator, ideal for measurements of optical loss characteristics and transmission error rate in evaluating single-mode fiber-optic communications equipment. The Ando AQ3140 contains both a step attenuator arid a continuous attenuator for precise optical level adjustments up to 65dB. Non-reflective coating on optical surface enables the AQ-3140 to achieve the high return loss of 40dB. This is suitable for measuring systems having optical device like light source that is susceptible to reflected light. Specifications. Wavelength: 1300 nm / 1550 nm. Max. attenuation: 65 dB. Attenuation: 0 to 50dB in 10dB steps and; 0 to 15dB continuously variable. Insertion loss: 3dB or less (at attenuation setting of 0 dB). Return loss: 40dB or more. Connector: FC-Super PC. Applicable fibers: SM (10/125 um).

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the ANDO AQ-3140. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Amplified Spontaneous Emission Source (ASE)
ASE, a process where spontaneously emitted radiation (luminescence) is amplified. In lasers and particularly in high-gain erbium-doped amplifiers, amplified spontaneous emission is usually an unwanted effect. It tends to limit the gain achievable in a single stage of a fiber optic amplifier to the order of 40–50 dB.

Dynamic Range
In a transmission system, the ratio of the overload level to the noise level of the system, usually expressed in dB. Ratio of the highest to lowest detectable signal of a system, expressed in dB.

Optical Power
Optical Power is usually measured in "dBm", or decibels referenced to one miliwatt of power. while loss is a relative reading, optical power is an absolute measurement, referenced to standards. You measure absolute power to test transmitters or receivers and relative power to test loss.

Relative Wavelength Accuracy
When randomly changing the wavelength and measuring the differences between the actual and displayed wavelengths, the relative wavelength accuracy is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Wavelength
Wavelength is a term for the color of light, usually expressed in nanometers (nm) or microns (m). In Fiber Optics the wavelenghts mostly used are in the infrared region where the light is invisible to the human eye.
