JDSU CORL-A1 Optical Return Loss Meter

The JDSU cORL-A1 provides a compact, intuitive Optical Return Loss Meter designed to enable applications ranging from simple continuity verification and return loss testing to integration into process automation equipment designed for automated alignment. Available in two or three laser versions with the option to select from four key wavelengths: 1310, 1490, 1550, and 1625 nm. The intregrated multiplexer and single optical output found in the cORL-A1 greatly simplifies the optical connections and calibrations. The 70 dB dynamic range in return loss enables the measurement of high performance angled physical contact (APC) connectors. A simple, intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) and keypad minimizes training requirements. A universal serial bus (USB) interface may be used for test automation interfacing to a PC. While connected by USB, the cORL-A1 does not require an additional mains connection, reducing cord tangle. Specifications. ORL Mode; Peak wavelength: 1310, 1490, 1550, 1625 nm.

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.

Broadband Source (BBS)
A Broadband Source is a spectrally large source that emits a signal which contains a continuous range of frequencies with a broad optical bandwidth (usually 100 nm or more). Sometimes called a white light source, there are two different meanings of this term. Visible white light and a source which does not necessarily emit in the visible spectral region.

Coherence is the pattern and or relationships of waves due to phase properties.

Linearity is the relative difference between the displayed power ratio, Dx/D0, and the actual (true) power ratio Px/P0 caused by changing the displayed power level from the reference level, D0, to an arbitrary displayed level, Dx.

Power Flatness Over Modulation
When changing the wavelength and modulation frequency, and measuring the differences between actual and displayed power levels (in dB), the power flatness is ± half the span between the maximum and the minimum value of all differences.

Singlemode fiber
Singlemode Fiber has a small core, only about 9 microns, and is used for telephony and CATV with laser sources at 1300 and 1550 nm. It can go very long distances at very high speeds. 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.
