Discontinued BPD-002

Balanced Photodetector


Replacement Product: OEM Balanced Photodetector

The BPD-002 is a compact laboratory balanced detector. It has a 200 MHz bandwidth balanced RF output and two 1 kHz monitor ports, and is packaged in a sturdy enclosure.

Product Description

The BPD-002 is designed for use in research and development, with ease of use and high performance as the primary design goals. The device is fully enclosed in a compact, sturdy aluminum box with two optical input ports, a balanced RF output port, two 1 kHz monitor ports, and a power supply port. With a bandwidth up to 200 MHz, a transimpedance gain larger than 30K and a saturation power larger than 130 µW, the BPD-002 can be integrated into laboratory or commercial OCT, fiber sensor, and high performance optical measurement systems.
