CCD Cameras

IDS Imaging Development Systems, Woburn, MA, offers the UI-2280 (USB) and UI-6280 (GigE) series CCD cameras that feature the Sony sensor ICX-655 with a 5-megapixel resolution. The uEye models combine the performance of a global shutter sensor with a high image resolution. The 3.45-μm pixels of the CCD sensor ensure high light sensitivity. The USB version of the UI-2280 transfers 6.5 frames per second, and the UI-6280 models with GigE achieve 8.5 and 10 frames per second, respectively. In trigger mode, all cameras achieve the same speed as in freerun mode. Higher frame rates are possible when an AOI (Area of Interest) is set or binning (horizontal and vertical) is used. The 2⁄3" size makes the cameras suitable for microscopy applications. The cameras are available with housing options in color and monochrome versions. Several options for the filter glass in front of the sensor are available.

Micro-OTDR

Anritsu Company (Richardson, TX) has introduced the MT9090A Network Master™ Micro-OTDR, a new tool for the installation and maintenance of today’s optical networks. The MT9090A Network Master features 5 cm resolution for accurate mapping of events. With less than 1 meter (3 feet) dead zones, the µOTDR can conduct fast and accurate evaluations of central offices, FTTx cables, and intra-building cables. In addition to traditional premise/access applications, the µOTDR expands the areas in which handheld OTDRs can be used. Featuring dynamic range of 37 dB, the MT9090A Network Master can provide great detail and high resolution when measuring metro links, as well as conduct complete evaluation of long haul fibers up to 175 km (108 miles). The overall capability of the MT9090A Network Master makes it a single instrument solution for evaluating fibers in any network, including premise, access, metro, core, as well as PON-based FTTx networks featuring up to a 1x64 split.
