FVA-3800

VERSATILE AND COMPACT SIGNAL ATTENUATION SOLUTION


The FVA-3800 Multiport Benchtop Optical Variable Attenuator is designed for a broad range of applications for users with very demanding research requirements as well as for those looking for a fast, high-density solution. It is the most compact instrument on the market. Capable of integrating up to four attenuators in a single unit, users with tight space requirements are now able to get a no-compromise solution.

Polarization-Maintaining Option

The FVA-3800 is compatible with polarization-maintaining fiber. This eliminates the need to use an external polarization controller to maintain the polarization of the input signal, which is critical for coherent transmitters, receiver design and testing.

Front Panel Control

PC Application for Multi-Instrument Management


EXFOs Test Instrument Manager application, TIM, makes it very easy for users to control and view the status of each attenuator. Simply connect a PC running the application to the FVA-3800 via USB, for single device operation, or connect via Ethernet, for multi-device operation. The TIM application is also compatible with the FLS and IQS-2800 ITLA tunable light sources.

Remote Control
Standard USB and Ethernet interfaces enable the FVA-3800 to be remotely controlled from a PC or test station. This allows users to program their own software solutions for complex procedures or to automate their testing using SCPI commands.

Pr

Equipped with an LCD display, the FVA-3800 does not require a PC to set the attenuation range, wavelength or power output level. This makes it fast and easy for users to set all the required parameters.

SIMPLE, FLEXIBLE AND USER-FRIENDLY INTERFACE

im

in

The power monitoring function is used to set the attenuator output power level. When enabled, this option maintains power stability, even when there is a fluctuation in source power. It also simplifies test setups by eliminating the need for an external power meter.

ar

The rugged and reliable design of the FVA-3800 is built using components with high mean-time-between-failure (MTBF) specifications. Thanks to minimal maintenance, our attenuators can be used in 24/7 production environments.
