The Anritsu MT9820A is an optical test device designed to perform rapid insertion loss measurements on any fibre or bulk optical component over the entire telecom band.
The accurate Anritsu MT9820A uses the new sweeping method to monitor the output power and wavelength of up to four external tunable laser sources during using high-speed sweeps.

Leveraging its four internal detectors, the MT9820A achieves lightning-fast analyses of multi-channels optical components, such as OADM, WSS, multiplexers and interleavers. The Anritsu MT9820A also has interface capability for additional external detection units.

The MT9820A’s patented configuration provides a solution that continuously sweeps over several lasers to achieve fast, full-range measurements of any CWDM, FTTX or WDM optical component.

A compact format, open architecture, flexible hardware inputs and outputs, and configurable software at one low price combine to make the MT9820A a practical and affordable test solution for present and future applications.

The MT9820A unit adapts to any tunable laser source without compromising performance.

The MT9820A’s combination of high-speed electronic and optical interferometry enable four real-time measurements with high resolution and accuracy that is ideally suitable for optical characterisation during alignment and manufacturing processes, as well as for optical sensor analysis.
