The LCA 500 is a fast and accurate component analyzer that is
ideal for production test and quality control. The LCA 500 provides
the high throughput and connectivity needed for the manufacturing
floor while delivering the extemely high sensitivity and resolution.
The LCA 500 provides single-scan measurements for testing a wide range of passive components from couplers to specialty fiber and everything in between (Fiber Bragg Gratings, arrayed waveguide gratings, free-space filters, tunable devices, amplifiers, etc.).
The LCA 500 utilizes the software interface of the OVA 5000 with the ability to measure and analyze insertion loss (IL), return loss (RL) and polarization-dependent loss (PDL).
- Single scan measurement of IL, RL and PDL
- High resolution (1.6 pm) and sensitivity (80 dB dynamic range)
- Integrated tunable light source
- Measure in transmission or reflection
- Complete full band measurement scan in less than 3 seconds
- User-friendly interface
