The all new SA500 Spectral Attenuation system represents a new generation of fiber test equipment based on the latest digital DSP technology.
The PE.fiberoptics Spectral Attenuation system in the form of the SM400A became the industry standard for factory measurement of spectral attenuation on long non-repeatered submarine cable lengths.
The SA500 with it's new electronics and software continues this role, but with enhanced spectral coverage, functionality and measurement speed.
In most Submarine Cable manufacturing sites, cable lengths between land stations and the first amplifier have stretched. There now exists a requirement to measure the Spectral attenuation of lengths with losses greater than 35dB, something the SA500HD achieves with unmatched accuracy and repeatability.
