A flexible systems-based approach to optical- and protocol-layer test and measurement
IQS-600 Intelligent Qualification System
Comprehensive range of plug-in test modules
Highly intuitive Graphical User Interface
Ethernet, GPIB and RS-232 for remote-control operation
LabVIEW™ drivers and ActiveX libraries for all available modules
PCI interface slots enabling the integration of fast data-acquisition cards or other test equipment
The IQS-600 Intelligent Qualification System offers a flexible systems-based approach to optical- and protocol-layer test and measurement for manufacturing, automation, optical qualification and R&D. It combines powerful features and an easy-to-use graphical user interface.
Based on standard industrial PC architecture, the IQS-600 is a scalable modular system that houses a controller, expansion units and a comprehensive range of plug-in test modules.
Using an IQS-605P or an IQS-610P Controller Unit and IQS-610E Expansion Unit, you can expand your system to as many as 100 modules. The IQS-600's EXFO Bus II delivers the operating speed you need for transferring data and commands between interconnected units.
Plug-in modules include: Power Meter, Light Source, ASE Broadband Source, WDM Laser Source, EDFA Booster, Variable Attenuator, PDL Meter, Polarisation Scrambler, Return-loss Meter, OSA, Optical Switch and many more - some are listed below with links to EXFO's web site.
IQS Plug-In Modules
High-performance Power Meter - IQS-1700
The IQS-1700 Optical Power Meter offers a continuous-mode peak-acquisition speed of 5208 measurements per second with an 80 dB range. A 300 μs stabilisation time allows simultaneous measurement of high and low signals on one or two channels.
Optical Light Source - IQS-2150
The IQS-2150 Optical Light Source features variable output power over a 6 dB range that can be fine-tuned in 0.1 dB increments. Both the LED and laser versions come in various wavelengths to support all singlemode and multimode applications.
Variable Attenuator - IQS-3150
EXFO's IQS-3150 Variable Attenuator is ideal for BER testing and system verification in demanding 24/7 production environments.
MEMS Optical Switch - IQS-9100B
The IQS-9100B MEMS Optical Switch provides highly accurate and repeatable fibre-to-fibre switching for singlemode 1 x N configurations up to 1 x 32.
Utility Module - IQS-9600
This IQS-9600 Utility Module secures and standardises the integration of couplers, isolators, filters and Bragg gratings into the IQS-600 Integrated Qualification System.
Optical Switch - IQS-9100
The IQS-9100 Optical Switch is ideal for component testing, ribbon fibre testing, multichannel monitoring, remote and multiple-component testing, signal routing and bypass switching.
