The 2880 Fiber Analysis System is a factory-proven optical test platform that can be configured to perform fast, accurate and reliable characterization of several important single-mode and multimode optical fiber transmission parameters. These include: chromatic dispersion, polarization mode dispersion, spectral attenuation, fiber length, strain, transmitted power, bending loss and cable skew.

Multiple measurement capability makes the 2880 a versatile tool for both fiber and cable manufacturers.

Features and Benefits
Fastest Chromatic Dispersion Measurements
  • Minimize measurement time and expense
Configurable Optical Platform
  • Provides full spectral coverage from 1240 to 1650 nm with standard configuration
  • Allows customization of spectral range and width with special wavelength fixed source and tunable laser options
  • Add either interferometric or wavelength scanning PMD measurement options
  • Enables measurements on fibers over 200 km long with ultra-high dynamic range option
  • Measurement options for cable design qualification (single and multi-fiber strain, cable skew, macrobending loss)
PKSL Test Application
  • Provides menu-driven test definition with an easy to use graphic user interface, plus the ability to extensively customize test sequences
