FIRST-CLASS BUILDING BLOCK FOR ASSESSING SIGNAL ATTENUATION High-quality components and meticulous calibration procedures make the FVA-3150 Variable Attenuator the instrument of choice for repeatable and accurate attenuation settings (up to 65 dB). The FVA-3150 meets system and component manufacturers’ need for component and system loss simulation, instrument calibration, power meter linearity measurement and spectral tuning. Its ultra-low insertion loss enables you to optimize the loss budget. The FVA-3150 is configured for singlemode or multimode fibers. Use it as a stand-alone instrument or mounted on a 19-inch rack (optional).
Choose from three attenuation modes: absolute (including insertion loss), relative (in reference to the 0.00 dB level) or X+B (relative display to any selected reference value).
The monitor output port enables accurate power-level monitoring at the receiver end of your system.
