Lightwave component analyser, single mode, economic

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Agilent Technologies

Keysight Technologies

Description :

The Lightwave Component Analyser offers accurate and fast testing of electro-optical components for S21 responsivity, as well as electrical reflection. The N4374B turnkey solution is based on Keysight E5071C network analyser. All system components are optimized for best overall performance, resulting in highest accuracy and lowest ripple of the test results. The new N4374B replaces the industry standard 8702 series LCA and supports modulation frequencies up to 4.5 GHz at 1310nm and 1550nm source wavelength.
