   ANDO AQ3540   Description / Specification:    
ANDO AQ3540 Optical Channel Selector

The Ando AQ3540 optical channel selector can switch one or two inputs to 16 outputs (or vice versa). With excellent selection repeatability, low insertion loss, high retum loss and low dependence on polarization, it makes it easier than ever to construct automatic measurement systems for development, manufacturing and inspection tasks in optical transmission systems and optical devices. When used with an OTDR, it can also measure multicore fiber characteristics. Features. Superb selection repeatability (typical 0.003 dB). Low polarization dependence: 0.05 dB p-p or less. High return loss (45 dB or 60 dB). Low insertion loss (typical 1 .2 dB). Long switch life (typical 10 million cycles). Manual-free operation by Rotary encoder input.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the ANDO AQ3540. 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.

dBm
Optical power referenced to 1 millimatt

Multimode Fiber
Multimode Fiber has a large core (almost always 62.5 microns - a micron is one one millionth of a meter - but sometimes 50 microns) and is used with LED sources at wavelengths of 850 and 1300 nm for short distance, lower speed networks like LANs. Both multimode and singlemode fiber have an outside diameter of 125 microns - about 5 thousandths of an inch - just slightly larger than a human hair.

Power Repeatability
Power Repeatability is the random uncertainty in reproducing the power level after changing and re-setting the power level. The power repeatability is ± half the span (in dB) between the highest and lowest actual power. Note: - The long-term power repeatability can be obtained by taken the power repeatability and power stability into account.

Refractive Index
The refractive index or index of refraction of a substance is a measure of the speed of light in that substance. It is expressed as a ratio of the speed of light in vacuum relative to that in the considered medium. The velocity at which light travels in vacuum is a physical constant, and the fastest speed at which energy or information can be transferred. However, light travels slower through any given material, or medium, that is not vacuum.

Total insertion loss
A measure of the loss of light within an optical component
