New Product: MOEC Unveils New Variable Optical Attenuators; Latest Additions to Award-winning Shadow Product Line Bring Benefits for L-Band, Raman Amplifiers, and Free-Space Systems.
WATERVLIET, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 14, 2001
Molecular OptoElectronics Corporation (MOEC), 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 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 systems.
The Shadow L-Band EVOA meets the demands of DWDM 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, 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 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 optical amplifiers under the WaveDaemon(TM) brand.
