The Agilent/HP 81561A is a variable optical attenuator plug-in module (single slot) for Agilent's Lightwave Multichannel Platform 8163, 8164 and 8166 series. Small and cost effective, this HP81561A module offers high resolution (.001dB) for single wavelength applications. Using 9/125 um single mode optical fibers (SMF28), Agilent 81561A features an integrated shutter which can be used for protection purposes or to simulate channel drops if available. In addition, by entering the operating wavelength, the instrument automatically applies the appropriate corrections. Typical return loss is 60dB; Angled fiber connector.
