Product information "MPC-203 Polarization Controller"
980-1620 nm; SOP Change Rate ≤11 Mrad/s; IL <0.6 dB; PDL <0.1 dB; PMD <0.2 ps; AL <0.1 dB; RL >50 dB
General Photonics’ MPC-203 high-speed multifunction polarization controller is specially designed to meet the high SOP (state of polarization) scrambling requirements needed for stress testing a coherent receiver’s polarization tracking performance.
MPC-203 combines General Photonics’ award winning PolaRite™ II/III polarization controller with proprietary polarization control algorithms to achieve a wide range of polarization control functionalities, including high-speed polarization scrambling with a maximum SOP change rate of up to 11 Mrad/s.
Unlike other high-speed polarization scramblers found in the market, this all-fiber, pass-through design ensures low insertion loss (IL), polarization dependent loss (PDL), polarization mode dispersion (PMD) and activation loss (AL).
