It is not possible to propertly install, maintain or troubleshoot systems using more than one wavelength on the same fibre without having an optical spectrum analyser. PROMAX introduces the PROLITE-60, the first low cost field optical spectrum analyser. This unique masterpiece is possible thanks to the use of a new type of monochromator recently developed by PROMAX engineering team.
The PROLITE-60 is the result of an intense research work associated to the development of the latest optical communication systems.
A priority for telecommunication operators all over the world is that of making more efficient their already existing optical networks. The first step is to increase their capacity, which can be achieved by using more wavelengths simultaneously to transport the information.
One of the biggest handicaps to implement this type of systems so far was the cost of the test equipment required to launch the projects. When various wavelengths are sharing one single fibre, the optical power meters are not normally bringing out much information about the problems that can be affecting to each one of them as the measurements are not wavelength selective. Say we are injecting into a fibre eight wavelengths out of eight laser sources. When we are to check at the other end of the fibre something as simple as whether all laser sources are working properly, an optical spectrum analyser is required. The PROLITE-60 is the first optical spectrum analyser truly portable, rough and batteries operated available at a really attractive cost.
The PROLITE-60 is also suitable for many other applications. Using the various available options it is suitable for reflectometry, analysis of materials, fibre sensors, testing of photonic devices such as filters, attenuators, couplers, isolators and other optical components.
