Optical Vector Analyzer
OVA 5100

Optical Vector Analyzer

The Luna OVA 5100 is the fastest, most accurate and economical tool for loss, dispersion and polarization measurements of modern optical networking equipment.

*The OVA 5100 is a direct replacement for the OVA 5000 with equivalent functionality. For more information on the differences, see this comparison of OVA 5100 and OVA 5000.

Product Description

The OVA 5100 is the ideal device for single-connection, all-parameter characterization of fiber components from couplers to specialty fiber and everything in between (Fiber Bragg Gratings, arrayed waveguide gratings, free-space filters, tunable devices, amplifiers, etc.), all with a single sweep of a tunable laser.

The OVA 5100 uses an interferometric method to directly measure the linear transfer function (Jones Matrix), from which all standard linear parameter measurements can be accurately extracted.
