Teledyne LeCroy Introduces Industry’s Highest-Bandwidth Coherent Optical Receiver at ECOC 2015

Teledyne LeCroy today introduces the IQS series of Coherent Optical Receivers, featuring the industry's highest bandwidth. These products extend Teledyne LeCroy's Optical Modulation Analysis (OMA) portfolio, enabling the creation of flexible, modular systems with unparalleled performance and ease of use. When combined with Teledyne LeCroy's LabMaster 10Zi-A oscilloscopes and integrated Optical-LinQ analysis software, the IQS receivers test DP-QPSK and DP-16QAM optical signals at speeds up to 130 GBaud.

The result of several years of collaboration with the optical specialists at Coherent Solutions, the 70-GHz Teledyne LeCroy IQS70 Coherent Optical Receiver pairs with the LabMaster 10-65Zi-A oscilloscope to provide a system bandwidth of 65 GHz, delivering an ideal solution for characterizing leading-edge 56-Gbaud communications systems and enabling detection up to 130 GBaud. For lower-rate applications, the 42-GHz IQS42 Coherent Optical Receiver provides the ultimate test platform for up to 32-Gbaud DP-16QAM or DP-QPSK when used with the 36-GHz LabMaster 10-36Zi-A.

Completing the world's most comprehensive OMA solution, Optical-LinQ is an intuitive and fully integrated software package for measurement and visualization of optically modulated signals. It runs entirely within the user interface of the LabMaster 10Zi-A. No other OMA on the market offers such integrated control of both oscilloscope and coherent receiver. Optical-LinQ provides fully automated control of the IQS receiver, phase recovery algorithms, and polarization demultiplexing, as well as an exhaustive number of modulation analysis displays and parameters.

In addition to a market-leading system bandwidth of 70 GHz, these Optical Modulation Analysis systems provide a dynamic calibration capability to enable the LabMaster 10 Zi-A real-time oscilloscope to be disconnected from the IQS Coherent Optical Receiver and used for other electrical validation and testing without requiring a factory re-calibration. This enables dual use of the oscilloscope for serial-data eye diagrams and jitter, noise and crosstalk analysis on NRZ electrical tributaries using Teledyne LeCroy’s SDAIII-CompleteLinQ software package.

"Consistent bandwidth leadership means Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes have become crucial tools for those pushing the boundaries of optical communications technology," said Patrick Connally, Product Manager for high-performance oscilloscopes at Teledyne LeCroy. "Our new IQS receivers complete the most comprehensive and highest-performance Optical Modulation Analysis solution on the market, enabling us to continue providing the most capable toolset for innovators in telecommunications."

Teledyne LeCroy will demonstrate an OMA System consisting of an IQS70 receiver and a LabMaster 10-65Zi-A oscilloscope system in its booth 458 at the ECOC Exhibition in Valencia, Spain.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
