Exfo IQ-5100 Polarization Controller

  • Provides Continuous Random Scanning Over all Possible States of Polarization
  • Measures: PDL of WDW and Passive Components
  • (4) Liquid-Crystal Elements


The Exfo IQ-5100 Polarization Controller is engineered for the IQ-200 Optical Test System, and provides continuous random scanning over all possible states of polarization. This module is ideal for measuring the PDL of WDW and passive components such as couplers, isolators, and Bragg gratings. It can be used for any measurement application requiring controlled or varying states of polarization.

Using four liquid-crystal elements, the IQ-5100 Polarization Controller simulates the action of four variable waveplates and therefore provides a full sampling of polarization states at any wavelength from 1200 to 1635 nm.

Product Family: IQ-5100, IQ5100

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.
