Er/Yb Doped Fiber Amplifier, 36 dBm Module (EYDFA-36-M)

Data Sheet

Product Overview

The Optilab EYDFA-36-M Erbium Ytterbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EYDFA) Module is a high-power, versatile amplifier designed for CATV/PON networks, optical communication and other general-purpose optical amplification applications. Based on multi-mode pumping Er/Yb double clad fiber technology, EYDFA-36-M is designed to produce high output power up to 36 dBm. By using a dual stage design, EYDFA-36-M provides optical gain of up to 36 dBm (with optional Pre-Amp), while maintaining low noise figure (NF) below 5 dB. The EYDFA-36-M amplifier produces optical output levels from +33 dBm to +36 dBm with an input power level range from -20 dBm. Featuring adjustable output level power via ACC through the front panel and software control through USB, this compact module housing ideal for OEM integration applications.
