Product Overview

RENT YOKOGAWA AQ6370C-20 High Performance Optical Spectrum Analyzer (call for availability)

Ambient condition change, vibration and shock to an optical precision product, like an optical spectrum analyzer, will effect the optical components, and eventually degrade optical performance. The Yokogawa AQ6370C-20 High Performance Optical Spectrum Analyzer however, using its quality standard functions, can maintain its high optical performance within a couple of minutes so that you can quickly start a measurement.

The Yokogawa AQ6370C-20 High Performance Optical Spectrum Analyzer comes equipped with a wavelength reference source for the wavelength calibration function and the optical alignment function.  The wavelength calibration function automatically calibrates with the built-in wavelength reference or an external light source, to ensure the wavelength accuracy. The optical alignment function automatically aligns the optical path in the monochromator using the built-in source to maintain high performance.

Features and Specifications of the Yokogawa AQ6370C-20 High Performance Optical Spectrum Analyzer include:
