MPB Communications EBS-7210 Erbium Broadband Source

  • Double (C and L) Band Erbium Source
  • High-Power Uniform-Output Emission
  • Low-Ripple and High Long-Term Stability


The EBS-7210 is a double-band broadband source. The reduced ripple of its high-power emission spectrum is ideally suited to test broadband passive components (such as AWGs and FBGs) since it allows loss measurements to be performed with a uniform, large dynamic range, hence equally precisely, over both the C and the L bands.

The EBS-7210 is a high-power, spectrally-flattened broadband source spanning both the erbium C and L bands. The EBS-7210 was developed to be an affordable, yet powerful, laboratory test source for DWDM component manufacturers.

With its broad, flattened emission spectrum and eye-safe wavelength, the EBS-7210 Dual-Band Broadband Source is well suited for a wide range of applications, such as wavelength-dependent loss and PMD measurements of DWDM-system components, gain and gain-flatness measurements of EDFAs, local networking by spectral slicing, fiber-optic sensors and white-light interferometry.

· Spectral measurements of C & L band DWDM components
· Compliance tests of C-, L- or dual-band systems
· Accurate gain and gain-flatness measurement of dual-band EDFAs
· Local networking by spectral slicing
· High sensitivity PMD measurements
· Fiber sensors and gyroscopes
· White-light interferometry

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!

InstraView Request Form

To get started:

  1.   Fill in the request form below
  2.   We'll send you an email letting you know exactly when your piece of equipment will be available for viewing
