Benchtop Intelligent Optical Signal-To-Noise Ratio Generator

banner_Logo_OZ-opticsOZ Optics’ Intelligent Optical Signal-to-Noise Ratio Generator (iOSNRG) has been designed to allow users to inject a programmable level of noise into an optical signal, creating a precisely de-fined signal-to-noise ratio. All iOSNRG settings can be controlled automatically with the user-friendly touch panel or computer inter-face. With a built-in narrow-band tune-able filter, the wavelength can be selected to be any channel within the ITU Grid with fine-tuning capability. The output power level is user programmable, making this an ideal instrument for doing OSNR measurements in data communication systems. The instrument comes with GPIB, USB, and Ethernet interfaces, allowing it to be controlled by a computer, for automated testing of systems or devices.
