Built for xWDM Test Applications
The FTB-5230 Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) is designed for testing both
DWDM and CWDM systems within metro/access links and long-haul networks. 
This cost-effective module is housed in the FTB-400 Universal Test System,
EXFO’s tough, portable test platform. What’s more, the FTB-5230 covers the
entire transmission wavelength range, from 1250 nm to 1650 nm.
With a commonly used resolution bandwidth of 0.1 nm, the FTB-5230 is ideal
for characterizing DWDM networks with a channel spacing of down 50 GHz.
Thanks to user-friendly features such as pass/fail analysis and trace
comparison, this modular OSA helps you ensure high-quality transmission.
The FTB-400 Universal Test System offers rapid,
powerful multitasking with simultaneous acquisitions
and post-processing. Combine up to seven single-slot
field-interchangeable modules for hundreds of versatile
Combine the three-slot FTB-5230 CWDM OSA, the
short-dead-zone FTB-7200D OTDR and the highly
versatile FTB-3930 MultiTest Module to certify fiber and
signal quality by characterizing entire networks.
Optimize CAPEX thanks to the advantage of combining
an OSA, an OTDR, a power meter, an OLTS and many
other instruments inside a single platform.
