MOEC Manatee Observation and Education Center (Ft. ), a leading manufacturer of Electronic Variable Optical Attenuators (EVOAs) for fiber optic systems, today announced the availability of two new additions to its award-winning Shadow(R) EVOA EVOA Electronic Variable Optical Attenuator (Bookham Technology)
EVOA Exchange View Only Administrator line, the Shadow(R) L-Band EVOA and the Shadow(R) High Power EVOA.
These products will allow system designers to effectively control signal power in optical networking Communications between computers, telephones and other electronic devices using light. An optical network is far more reliable and has far greater potential transmission capacity than networking in the electrical domain. See optical fiber. systems.
The Shadow L-Band EVOA meets the demands of DWDM (Dense WDM) The term given to wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) when significantly more channels were being added. Since WDM is increasingly more "dense" all the time, both terms are used synonymously. See WDM.
DWDM - wavelength division multiplexing system designers who wish to expand channel capacity by extending their capabilities into the longer wavelengths of the L-band. In addition to the industry-leading insertion loss The amount of loss attributed to a particular device being used in (inserted into) the system. For example, a circuit added to filter out unwanted frequencies may reduce the output current by some amount. See injection loss. , low backreflection and high dynamic range of the other Shadow series EVOAs, the L-band product offers low wavelength dependence throughout the 1570-1604 nm range.
The Shadow High Power EVOA is capable of handling up to 1 Watt, making it suitable for the high input optical powers in Raman amplifier Pronounced "ruh-mahn," it is a device that boosts the signal in an optical fiber by transferring energy from a powerful pump beam to a weaker signal beam. It relies on the interaction between light and atoms in the fiber. applications and in free-space point-to-point laser communication systems. The unit's ultra-low insertion loss offers system designers expanded power budgets and enhances system economics by conserving precious photons.
The L-Band and High Power units join MOEC's award-winning Shadow series of EVOAs, which includes the C-Band, Narrowband, and Shutter devices. All of MOEC's Shadow attenuators boast compact packaging, no moving parts, large dynamic range of up to 40 dB, and the industry's lowest insertion loss of less than 0.15 dB.
A leader in the optical-power management arena, MOEC creates and delivers innovative fiber-optic components for deployment in sophisticated optical networking systems. The company's products are designed to help eliminate bandwidth challenges presented by the enormous data requirements found in today's leading consumer and business Internet and other data communications applications. In addition to the Shadow(R) series of EVOAs, the company makes waveguide waveguide, device that controls the propagation of an electromagnetic wave so that the wave is forced to follow a path defined by the physical structure of the guide. optical amplifiers under the WaveDaemon(TM) brand.
