All optical components feature machine-polished ceramic ferules and ceramic sleeves designed for superior optical alignment and low loss. The chassis is constructed from heavy-gauge anodized aluminum, suitable for use in remote installations.
Injection-molded E Series horizontal wire managers are designed to smooth the installation and rework of cables on a standard 19-inch rack. Extra wide spacing between fingers and smooth edges are designed for easy routing of cable bundles, while built-in bend radius control maintains a 1-inch minimum bend radius that increases transmission reliability. Multiple mounting slots on the sides are designed to permit easier alignment on the rack, while increased depth on the rear is designed to provide more clearance between the rack and manager when working with large cable bundles.
Handheld RF power meter
The Model 3500 portable RF power meter is designed to provide the accuracy of a benchtop RF power meter while in the field. With a frequency range of 10 MHz to 6 GHz, the Model 3500 is built for such applications as WLAN and WiMax devices, and wireless sensors. Its dynamic range of -63 dBM to 20 dBM lets you measure signals either directly from the device under test or through layers of cabling and fixtures. In the field, the Model 3500’s +/- 0.21 dB accuracy enables precise characterization of devices, tighter test limits, and more accurate fixture calibration. Using normal or high-speed mode, the unit also can capture and transfer data to a PC through its USB interface, allowing for trend or drift analysis.
