Singlemode Variable Optical Attenuator MPS-2500
The use of the MPS-2500 Singlemode Variable Optical Attenuator (VOA) is critical whenever optical system loss budgets need to be varied to compensate for wavelength dependant losses, perform bit error rate (BER) testing and enhance optical receiver performance in the presence of high power levels. The MPS-2500 VOA is an adjustable attenuator that offers some great performance features over competing VOA's. Specifically, the MPS-2500 does not utilize any form of air-gap in the optical pathway. This ensures optimum system return loss and attenuation vs. wavelength flatness. Our Variable Optical Attenuator offers multi-wavelength capability to support WDM, CWDM and DWDM network applications with an attenuation range up to 40 dB. The MPS-2500 is made exclusively with Corning fiber and connectors for superior performance. In addition to the standard inset flathead screw, our VOA has a thumbscrew that can be used to adjust attenuation. This makes adjusting the attenuation in a tight spot nearly effortless and reduces the chance of damaging a surrounding component with a screwdriver.
