OZ Optics’ PDL-100 polarization dependent loss (PDL) meter integrates a sophisticated optoelectronic design with a user-friendly interface. The meter is designed to be insensitive to external optical power drift and generates very low insertion loss fluctuations during a measurement cycle. OZ Optics' PDL-100 PDL meter can be used to measure any pigtailed optical passive components accurately and repeatably, including fiber array wave guides, variable optical attenuators, isolators, couplers, switches and other optical devices.

The PDL-100 meter offers the capability of quickly characterizing PDL versus wavelength over a specified wavelength range. This is useful for testing a variety of optical components such as fiber Bragg Gratings. The meter is capable of acquiring and statistically analyzing multiple PDL measurements during a user-adjustable period of time.

The PDL-100 polarization dependent loss meter includes a built-in computer using the Windows CE operating system and a color touch screen. The built-in graphical display makes data analysis easy. The unit can be remotely operated via the serial interface port (RS232, RS485) or via a parallel printer port. An optional GPIB to RS232 converter is also available.

OZ Optics provides fixed and variable polarization dependent loss emulators. These emulators produce a precise level of polarization dependent loss, from 0.05 to 1dB. These devices can be used as references for calibration if required. OZ Optics also offers polarized fiber optic sources, single mode (SM) patchcords and polarization maintaining (PM) patchcords to complete your test setup.
