For testing Chromatic Dispersion in optical fibres the CMA 5000 CD/OTDR measures the chromatic dispersion, dispersion slope, and the zero-dispersion wavelength of any fiber type to allow optimized compensation. The CMA5000 Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) application characterizes the data rate capability of each fiber, quickly identifying which fibers are capable of providing higher data rates. For Optical Spectrum Analysis in the field the CMA5000 OSA400 and OSA425 offer highest performance in a field instrument. OSA 425 is the optimized cost OSA and OSA 400 gives the highest performance for your WDM system and provides lab specifications in a rugged field module. With best in class ORR, this OSA can compute OSNR measurements with very high accuracy. The unique flat top filter can drop signal up to 40Gb/s to do transport analysis. For component OSA measurements the MS9740 is best choice. This analyzer has the dynamic range, reception sensitivity and sweep speed required for measuring the characteristics of a wide range of devices.
