SANTEC’s latest Multichannel Optical Power Meter (model: MPM-210) delivers upgrades in measurement speed and dynamic range.

Product Name: Multichannel Optical Power Meter
Product Model: MPM-210

Santec, a leading design and manufacturer of tunable lasers, optical instruments, OCT products, and fiber-optic components, has developed the new Multi-Port Power Meter (MPM-210). The MPM-210 offers greatly improved performance and function when compared to santec’s current power meter options. This enhanced functionality allows the MPM-210 to be used in many applications, ranging from production environments to R&D. The new MPM-210 multi-port optical power meter is also command compatible with the previous MPM-200 model, so switching to the new MPM-210 is as simple as swapping out your devices.

New Product Highlights
1. High speed measurement
・ 15 times faster data transfer than the previous MPM-200.
Combining the MPM-210 and a santec TSL-Series laser equipped with a power monitor output enables faster measurement.
・ 2 memory buffers per port , Up to 1 million logging sampling points per port
Reading the current measurement data and starting a new measurement and can be done simultaneously, shortening the time for repeated measurements.
・ Fast measurement (100kHz) with high resolution

2. High dynamic range (logging mode)
・ 1.5 times higher measurement dynamic range
The measurement dynamic range with one sweep is typically 50 dB or more.
The input power range has been expanded to -80 to + 10 dBm, and the measurement range has also been extended.

3. A variety of mountable modules depending on the application
・ MPM-211 (Power meter module 4 ports)
・ MPM-212 (Power meter module 2 ports and 2 ports analog output)
The analog output function outputs a 0 to 2V analog voltage signal proportional to the optical power. This feature is ideal for fast measurement without using communication.
・ MPM-213 (Current meter module 4 ports)
This module is suitable for measuring the performance of fiber optics components using transceiver- like photodiodes (ROSA/Coherent receiver, etc) and an optical channel monitor.

The MPM-210 can simultaneously measure up to 20 ports (4 ports per MPM-211 module) very fast with high resolution.

Release date: 1/1/2018

We are proud to announce that we will be showing the new MPM-210 at this year’s OFC2018 (The Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition), Booth 2738, San Diego Convention Center, March 13-15.
