The Multicom MUL-OTC-EDFA-V 1550nm Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) Module is a low noise 1550nm optical amplifier designed to be used in the Multicom Optical Transport Chassis MUL-OTC-CH-V. Available optical output levels range from 13 to 24dBm.
This hot pluggable EDFA is designed to amplify 1550nm optical signals to increase the optical transmission distance over fiber, and can be used in conjunction with the Multicom 1550nm Optical Transmitter Module.
The EDFA Module includes input and output optical power detection to adjust the laser pump automatically and keep the output optical power of the EDFA module constant. Internal control circuitry accurately maintains the output power and temperature of the laser. This module communicates with the CMM status control and display unit by A/D sampling, a switching circuit, and a communication interface circuit.
