The New Ridge Technologies NRT-8000 is the world’s Smallest Optical Spectrum Analyzer with built in “live wavelength calibration” for C-Band applications. Custom-Cal is excited to offer the NRT-8000 and we’ve already done hands on lab testing! What we liked: portability, remote communication from remote location via internet (including WiFi and Wireless networks), Simple plug and play via USB using your laptop (and compatible Tablet), and ready to test. The NRT-8000 has many features common to OSA’s costing two to three times as much. Ask Custom-Cal for a Quote and Demo today!

NEW RIDGE TECHNOLOGIES NRT-8000 1527.2 to 1565.5 nm Handheld Optical Spectrum Analyzer

The New Ridge Technologies NRT-8000 is World's smallest OSA at the announcement (Oct. 1, 2013). With built-in reference for each single sweep, the NRT-8000 boasts excellent wavelength/frequency (±3.0 GHz or 0.0024nm) across the entire wavelength range. The rugged and compact design is perfect for outside plant (OSP) and military field applications. The integrated Server-Client (TCP/IP) software offers flexible remote control capabilities over the internet. The NRT-8000 is truely a universal OSA at affordable price. The NRT-8000 control software boasts the most simplified graphical user interface desgin. Without complex menu, the operator can start working on this instrument without learning curve. The control software is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8 that will meet vast majority of customers' requirements in the lab, in the systems and in the field. Specifications. Wavelength (Frequency) Coverage: 1527.2 nm to 1565.5 nm (196.3 THz to 191.5 THz). Absolute Wavelength (Frequency) Accuracy: ± 3.0 GHz (0.024nm).

Standard Calibration $400.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the NEW RIDGE TECHNOLOGIES NRT-8000. 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.

Chromatic Dispersion
Chromatic Dispersion is a broadening of the input signal as it travels down the length of the fiber. Chromatic Dispersion results from a variation in propagation delay with wavelength, and is affected by fiber materials and dimensions.

A Detector is a signal conversion device that converts power from one form to another, such as from optical power to electrical power

Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD)
Polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a form of modal dispersion where two different polarizations of light in a waveguide, which normally travel at the same speed, travel at different speeds due to random imperfections and asymmetries, causing random spreading of optical pulses. It is he difference between the maximum and minimum values of loss typically measured in ps/km^1/2.
