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.

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.

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 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.
