338 Series Optical Wavelength Meter

Speed and affordability for optical transceiver testing

338 Series Optical Wavelength Meter

Fast and cost-effective wavelength measurement

The 338 Series Optical Wavelength Meter from Bristol Instruments combines speed and affordability to address the most important requirements of optical transceiver manufacturers.

The model 338 has a high measurement rate of 25 Hz that results in reduced testing times and greater production throughput. And, its price, along with a five-year warranty, provides a lower cost of ownership compared with comparable systems.

Reliable accuracy with continuous calibration

The 338 Optical Wavelength Meter uses proven Michelson interferometer-based technology with fast Fourier transform analysis to measure the wavelength of CW or modulated signals to an accuracy of ± 1.0 pm.

Continuous calibration with a built-in wavelength standard ensures the utmost confidence in the test results.

Designed for convenience, built to last

Operation of the 338 Optical Wavelength Meter is straightforward. A convenient touch-screen display controls the system and displays the wavelength and power measurements in a variety of formats.

The data can also be sent to a PC using a library of SCPI commands via USB, Ethernet, or GPIB.
