The Exfo IQ-5240 High-performance Optical Spectrum Analyzer delivers high-quality signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) measurements for WDM test applications and is designed to improve your productivity. In narrowly spaced systems, high-power peaks can plague secondary wavelengths generated by non-linear effects such as four-wave mixing and self-phase modulation. If your analyzer lacks dynamic range, it can misread new generated wavelengths or amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) between peaks. The IQ-5240 OSA design meets most requirements for systems with 50 GHz spacing since it delivers an optical rejection ratio of 40 dBc at 25 GHz (0.2 nm) from a high-power, spectrally narrow peak.

The IQ-5240 is a double-pass Littman-Metcalf monochromator that provides premium filter resolution bandwidth (65 pm in C-band) with a steep, high-rejection shape. The OSA grating rotates on a gearless DC motor. A high-resolution encoder locates and controls the filter position at all times. Linearity and stability are guaranteed due to an innovative optical design limiting misalignment and inaccuracies.
