Product information "VP Variable Optical Attenuators"
MEMS-based, Pigtail Style, Broadband; Single/Dual Types; Fiber Type Single Mode; 1240 to 1640 nm; Attenuation up to 45 dB
Sercalo Technology’s VP series of MEMS-based, broadband variable optical attenuators (VOAs) achieves very low insertion loss and optimized polarization dependent loss characteristics. The VP series of variable attenuators allows the continuous adjustment of the attenuation with a 0 to 5 V control voltage.
The highly reliable attenuation mechanism is based on a micromechanical shutter – moving an obstructing element into the optical beam between two single mode fibers – and features below 2 ms response time and only 0.5 dB insertion loss. The position of the obstructing element can be adjusted by an integrated electrostatic actuator, resulting in a fast and hysteresis free response. The low insertion loss and the fast response time make the VP series of VOAs ideal components for active power tuning in WDM networks. Their miniature package withstands rugged environments and is well suited for direct mounting on printed circuit boards
