Acterna has released the OLC-65 optical level controller, which features variable optical attenuation, optical level control, and optical power meter functionality rolled in a single handheld instrument.

The device provides support for multiple field applications, including control and display of power levels during receiver sensitivity testing, provision of stable power levels at system interfaces, simulation of line loss for amplifier and BER testing, and power level control for calibration test set ups. The all-in-one nature of the OLC-65 makes test setup simple and eliminates the need to connect additional instruments, cables, and couplers.

The OLC-65 also includes remote control via SCPI commands over RS232 interfaces, level control function for stable output power, sweep function for stable and repeatable automated test cycles for various attenuation values over time, and universal interchangeable optical adapter systems.

The lightweight, battery-powered device features a 1/4 VGA display for complete reliability.
