The AQ6380 from Yokogawa Electric Corporation is an Optical Spectrum Analyzer that operates at a wavelength of 1200 to 1650 nm. It has a wavelength resolution of 0.005-2 nm in 0.01 nm steps and a wavelength accuracy of up to ±0.005 to ±0.05 nm with a close-in dynamic range of up to 65 dB. This spectrum analyzer has an optical return loss of 30 dB and a level sensitivity of -85 dB (TRAD mode) & -72 dB (RAPID mode). It has a minimum warm-up time of 1 hour and a measurement time of 0.2 s. This spectrum analyzer requires an AC supply of 100 to 240 V and consumes up to 100 W of power. It can be controlled remotely via Ethernet, GP-IB, USB, and VGA interfaces and manually via a 10.4-inch color LCD touchscreen display.
The AQ6380 incorporates smart technology and functionality including automated wavelength calibration and optimized sweep speed allowing for more efficient operation. It also includes gas purging mechanisms, fully automated wavelength calibration, compatibility with high-resolution and high sample counts, and single-mode fiber input. This spectrum analyzer is available in a benchtop module that measures 426 x 221 x 459 mm with FC/PC or SC/PC connector and is ideal for WDM test, DFB-LD test, LED test, FP-LD test, application management (add/delete) and fiber inspection applications.
