The Nano-speed Premium grade of Variable Fiber Optical Attenuator (NPOA) provides electrical control of optical power. This is achieved using a patent pending non-mechanical configuration and activated via a voltage electrical control signal. The solid-state optical crystal design eliminates mechanical movement and organic materials. The NP Series Variable Optical Attenuators are designed to meet the most demanding operation requirements of ultra-high reliability and fast response time with minimal mechanical footprint. Agiltron also offers customized electronic designs to meet special control requirements and applications. The NPOA is bidirectional.
The NP Series VOA is available in either normally-transparent or normally-opaque configurations.
The NP Series VOA is controlled by 5V TTL signals with a specially designed electronic driver having performance optimized for various repetition rate.
