Press Releases

We regularly update news editors and other interested parties with our news ticker. All newsworthy information at LASER COMPONENTS is available here first! You will find the press releases in chronological order below. If you are looking for press releases from a specific department, use the navigation bar on the side. We differentiate between general company news and news from the product groups: photodiodes, IR components, photon counters, lasers, measurement devices, fiber-optical components, optics, and laser accessories.

Power Meter with 125,000 Samples per Second


OptoTest OP740

With the OP740 from OptoTest, LASER COMPONENTS offers a high-speed solution for measuring the power of optical fibers from multiple channels. This device makes it possible to measure up to 125,000 samples per second with up to twenty-four fibers. In contrast to other systems, a separate, independent measuring unit is used for each fiber. This not only increases the speed but the accuracy of the measurement results as well. The relative measuring accuracy of the OP740 is ±0.02 dB. Thanks to this combination of high sampling rate and accuracy, even short signal dropouts in individual fibers can be detected as part of a dropout test.

Depending on the application, the OP740 is available with four to twenty-four ports per U2 rack. It can be optionally equipped with silicon (400 nm - 1100 nm) or InGaAs detectors (830 nm - 1700 nm).
The four-color touchscreen display allows the user to display the measurement results in real time and to choose how many channels are displayed. Several pass/fail measurements can be performed simultaneously without additional software. The color coding provides information about the performance of the overall system. The threshold values are defined by the user.

The OP740 is in demand wherever fast optical performance monitoring of many channels is required. For example, in the production of splitters, the cores of several fibers are fused together and twisted until the correct splitting ratio is achieved. This is best achieved when all outputs of the splitter can be monitored simultaneously.

In combination with the OPL-LOG software, this device is also suitable for long-term tests: for example, if the behavior of fibers is to be tested over the course of several weeks in a climate chamber.
