The Force Model 6901 and 6902 provide unparalleled performance in post-amplifier, in-line amplifier, pre-amplifier applications. As a post amplifier, Model 6901 receives the transmitted signal at its origination and launches a data stream at +15.5 dBm typical over a single optical fiber, making it ideal for long-haul applications. As an in-line amplifier, Model 6901 increases the signal strength at some point in the transmission line, greatly increasing the allowable distance between the transmit and receive sites. As a pre-amplifier, the Model 6901 directly precedes the receiver, boosting signal strength. Model 6902 provides four outputs of +8.9 dBm via an integral optical 1 x 4 splitter, providing multiple signals for local distribution. The Models 6901 and 6902 will interface with a remote status monitoring system via a rear panel 9-pin D-sub connector, allowing the user to access system information from a distant location. The wide wavelength range, excellent gain flatness, and low noise figure make the EDFAs ideal for CATV and DWDM applications.
