New Products from UC Instruments



Custom-Cal proudly supports distribution, calibration and sales of the popular UC Instruments Optical test equipment and instrumentation designed to meet the needs of Photonics, Optical and Telecomm Industries.


Our calibration role with UC Instruments guaranties instrumentation that will meet and exceed both you expectations and the published specifications!

  Because of our flexibility and high quality standards you can easily gain access to specific information you need and even request special measurements to insure the product will perform to your satisfaction or particular application. What we like about UC Instruments is there willingness and flexibility to design in additional features to meet demanding applications. Secondly and just as important: as a calibration provider having our level of experience I can easily state that UC Instruments has been very careful to NOT “over spec” instruments they provide. I am especially pleased that instruments reviewed and calibrated far exceed the published specification and are backed by an industry standard one year warranty.

  This line of new equipment features the Optical Lightwave Multimeter Mainframe and a suite of compatible plug-in modules such as:

      •  Optical Power Meter (OPM) with a very high dynamic range and sensitivity greater the -80dBM
      •  Tunable Laser Source (TLS) with comparable performance to the competition but at affordable pricing
      •  Optical Attenuator (VOA) increased functionality using just one slot of the Mainframe
      •  Return Loss Plug in Module
      •  High Speed Polarization Controller Module

  Other exciting products include:

      •  Affordable Wavelength Meter featuring a small footprint and high resolution scanning mode.
      •  ASE source featuring broad band and high power performance
      •  Laser Sweep Optical Spectrum Analyzer featuring fast sweep performance
         Rugged Portable Instruments with great form and fit designed with you in mind

  Have you noticed that it’s becoming increasing difficult to source used optical test equipment and the prices just keep going up?
  We have discovered a new manufacturer that solves the problem by supplying compatible new models at a price that often rivals the cost of used optical test equipment.

  UC Instruments has a comprehensive offering of new test equipment designed to meet both current and future needs:
