The 2800 Fiber Analysis System is a highly flexible measurement platform that can be configured to perform a variety of critical single-mode fiber measurements including chromatic dispersion, polarization mode dispersion, fiber strain, bending loss, spectral loss, skew and high resolution fiber length. Multimode chromatic dispersion, spectral loss (with optimized launch conditions) and fiber length measurements are also optionally configurable.

Standard LED sources cover the wavelength range from 1240 to 1630 nm, while optional LEDs can be fitted to enable measurements at 650, 850, 980 and 1060 nm. Ultra-high dynamic range options enable CD measurements on standard telecom fibers over 200 km long.
