Special EXFO test equipment catalogue for R&D/Manufacturing
EXFO has released a new catalogue covering their entire range of products for the fibre-based telecom engineer. Equipment for network engineers and R&D/Manufacturing is covered but, as Elliot Scientific only specialises in the latter, we have made available a special abbreviated version for download from our EXFO product pages.
Examples of the test equipment covered include:

New Products from EXFO – Tunable Laser Source & Matrix Optical Switch
EXFO has recently launched two new products that Elliot Scientific is able to offer to the UK and Irish telecom sectors.
IQS-2800 ITLA Tunable Laser Source – Up to 36 continuous wave high power lasers in one box
The recent upsurge in bandwidth requirements by carriers is pushing next-generation transmission systems to achieve new capacity limits via use of complex high-order modulation formats like dual-polarisation quadrature phase-shift keying (DPQPSK).
The new EXFO IQS-2800 is a modular test solution, housed in the IQS-636 platform, that provides researchers and engineers with a comprehensive way to design and test these future ultra-high-capacity network architectures. The lasers are continuous wave (CW), tunable, with a high-power output, narrow 100 kHz linewidth, and 10 pm resolution tunability over the C, L or A band.
MXS-9100 MEMS MxN Matrix Optical Switch – Any number of M input fibres can connect to any number of N output fibres
The new MXS-9100 optical switch is the perfect solution for centralised instrument sharing or automated testing in manufacturing. With its all-optical cross-connect technology, the MXS-9100 provides a unique combination of low insertion loss, fast protected switching and high reliability required in the lab or manufacturing environment. It allows any of M input fibres to connect to any of N output fibres in a fully non-blocking manner.

MEMS Optical Switches released for EXFO IQS-600
EXFO has added IQS-9100B MEMS Optical Switch test modules to its IQS-600 platform, the only modular system providing optical, transport and datacom testing in a single environment. The IQS-9100B switch modules provide highly accurate and repeatable fibre-to-fibre switching for single mode 1 x N configurations up to 1 x 32.
- Available for single mode fibre in 1xN configuration up to 32 ports
- Switching time faster than 30 msec
- Life expectancy of 109 cycles
- Insertion loss between 0.9 and 2.0 dB
- -50 dB back reflection
The MEMS-Based Design of the EXFO IQS-9100B delivers durable performance in a compact package. Fast switching time and a 1-billion-cycle lifetime expectancy make it the perfect optical switch for demanding manufacturing applications.
The IQS-600 Platform provides a flexible approach to optical, transport and datacom test and measurement for manufacturing, automation, optical qualification and R&D. It combines powerful features and control capabilities for up to 100 different modules. The IQS-9100B can easily be controlled remotely via the standard LAN or optional GPIB interfaces available on the IQS-600 using SCPI commands, LabVIEW drivers or any other automation software
