Optical power head, high power InGaAs, 27dBm

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Agilent Technologies

Keysight Technologies

Description :

The 8162xB family of optical power heads provide accurate power measurements with a large area detector in a remote head for flexible positioning. Functionality includes averaging time settings from 100 µs to 10 s, automatic power ranging, monitoring of minimum and maximum values and logging up to 20k samples. Fiber adapters are available for common connector types including MT ribbon fiber connectors and bare fiber clamps.

The D-shaped adapter type are held magnetically for quick adapter change. The heads also include a removable 81624DD adapter ring for use with the threaded type adapters. The heads are connected to the 816x mainframes using the 81618A single channel or 81619A dual-channel interface module.

  • Quote and availability


  • Low relative uncertainty reduces the impact of connectorizing and fiber handling and leads to a robust test setup
  • The 5 mm large-area detector is less susceptible for connector misalignment and guarantees highly repeatable measurement results. Lower power per mm² makes the optical head more suitable for high power measurements and guarantees better linearity
  • Power Range: -70 to +27 dBm
  • Low PDL uncertainty ±0.002 dB typical
  • Low spectral ripple uncertainty: ±0.002 dB typical
  • Optional ±2.5% uncertainty with special calibration
