Exfo IQ-2300 Series ASE Broadband Sources

  • Loss Characterization of DWDM Components
  • Return Loss Measurement
  • Noise Generation for System BER Testing
  • Polarizer Testing
  • Fiber Bragg Grating Monitoring Under Stress


The Exfo IQ-2300 Sereis ASE Broadband Sources are a stable, high-powered, non-polarized fiber-optic source ideal for WDM filter and FBG (fiber Bragg grating) testing in the lab. The IQ-2300 Series ASE Broadband Source is based on the principle of amplified spontaneous emission that uses an erbium-doped fiber pumped with a 980 nm laser diode. This source is perfect for characterizing components such as filters, WDM couplers, and Bragg gratings. Its non-polarized output and very short coherence length makes it ideal for stable and repetitive insertion loss and optical return loss (ORL) measurements.

Product Family: IQ-2300, IQ2300, IQ 2300

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!
