Pennington, NJ (PRWEB) January 21, 2009
PD-LD, Inc., the worldwide leader in Volume Bragg Grating® (VBG®) technology, has introduced a Triplexer laser module, intended for use in fiber optic test equipment that requires multiple wavelengths of light. This innovative component provides test equipment manufacturers the ability to offer their customers a more efficient way to test fiber optic installations. The three primary wavelengths of light used in fiber-to-the-home and commercial installations, 1310nm, 1490nm and 1550nm, are all now available in a single convenient package.
These fiber optic active device assemblies are built with three laser diode sources. In PD-LD's Triplexers, the three high reliability DFB semi-conductor lasers are optically coupled to single mode fiber in a manner that ensures stable and repeatable light output over a wide operating temperature range. Having the three wavelengths combined allows the creation of a single port instrument for fiber optic installers, allowing them to test all three wavelengths concurrently and only requiring one optical connection.
"This product was designed to meet the needs of both test equipment designers and installers of fiber optic lines," said Tom DeBerardine, Executive VP of Sales for PD-LD. "By having all three sources coupled into one single-mode fiber, test equipment designers have the ability to make their product more compact. For installers, this product will reduce the time required to test the fiber with each wavelength of light since they can connect to the fiber once and characterize all three wavelengths simultaneously."
Modules are available with all standard fiber optic connectors. Other wavelengths and fiber types are available upon request.
