The Keysight N4156A high performance measurement solution provides highly accurate insertion loss (IL) and polarization dependent loss (PDL) measurement. It is especially designed for startup manufacturers of critical DWDM passive components like multiplexers / demuliplexers of filters. In development and final test, manufacturers of such devices need a high performance measurement solutions to maximize throughput and yield and minimize the costs.
The N4156A system consist of:
an 8164B mainframe
a high performance tunable laser (81600B #150 or #160) for the C or C+L-band
an 81634B low PDL power sensor (upgradeable to four power sensors)
an optional 8169A polarization controller
the N4150A Photonic Foundation Library software
all necessary connectors and patchcords
and the typical specifications for the complete solution set up
This is offered at a very attractive price below the prices of separate instruments.
