Bristol Instruments Now Offers Higher Wavelength Measurement Accuracy for Fast and Affordable Optical Transceiver Testing

VICTOR, NEW YORK July 15, 2020 – Bristol Instruments has added a new product to its 338 Optical Wavelength Meter Series. The model 338A uses proven Michelson
interferometer-based technology with fast Fourier transform analysis to measure the wavelength of CW and modulated signals to an accuracy of ± 0.3 pm.

The 338A and 338B systems both offer the same fast measurement rate of 25 Hz, resulting in reduced testing times and greater production throughput. Their low price point, combined with Bristol’s standard five-year warranty on all of its wavelength meters, provides the lowest cost of ownership available.

“We’re committed to continually improving our products to address the production needs of our customers,” said Dr. Brian Samoriski, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Bristol Instruments. “With the addition of the 338A Optical Wavelength Meter, we have combined affordability, speed, and higher accuracy in one system to help optimize optical transceiver testing.”
