Optical Channel Monitor

OCM-C  C-band Optical Channel Monitor:

OWL’s C-band optical channel monitor (OCM) provides users with quick and accurate optical channel measurement for DWDM networks using the wavelengths specified in the ITU G.694.1.

Features include: user-definable optical power threshold, selectable channel spacing (50 & 100 GHz), and data storage.

Data can be viewed either as a bar graph or in tabular format, and the LCD display will automatically rotate based on the orientation of the OCM unit. Viewing in landscape mode allows for more viewing detail.
