Catalog Description


Multiport Benchtop Optical Variable attenuator

The FVA-3800 Multiport Benchtop Optical Variable Attenuator is designed for a
broad range of applications adapted to users
with very demanding research requirements as well as those looking for a fast,
high-density solution.

The most compact instrument on the market, this no-comprise solution can
integrate up to four attenuators within a single unit,
thereby accommodating users with tight space requirements.

Front panel control
Equipped with an LCD display, the FVA-3800 does not require a PC for setup of
the attenuation range, wavelength or power
output level. This makes it fast and easy for users to set all the required

PC application for multi-instrument management
EXFOs Tunable Instrument Manager application (TIM) makes it very easy for
users to control and view the status of each attenuator.
Simply connect a PC running the application to the FVA-3800 via USB for
single-device operation or connect via Ethernet for
multidevice operation.

The TIM application is also compatible with the FLS-2800 and IQS-2800 ITLA
tunable light sources.
Remote control

Standard USB and Ethernet interfaces enable the FVA-3800 to be
remote-controlled from a PC or test station. This allows users
to program their own software solutions for complex procedures, or to automate
their testing using SCPI commands.
