LCA 510

Component Analyzer

The LCA 510 is a fast and accurate component analyzer that is ideal for production test and quality control. The LCA 510 provides the high throughput and connectivity needed for the manufacturing floor while delivering the extremely high sensitivity and resolution.


Product Description

The LCA 510 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 510 utilizes the software interface of the OVA 5100 with the ability to measure and analyze insertion loss (IL), return loss (RL) and polarization-dependent loss (PDL).
