During the latest ECOC exhibition in Amsterdam, UK-based optical fiber components specialists Phoenix Photonics has unveiled two new products as part of its expanded Firebird instrumentation range. The company launched a programmable polarization control instrument and an associated polarization controller microprocessor interface.

The microprocessor interface enables the already popular electronic polarization controller (EPC) to be programmed directly from either a desktop or laptop computer through a simple USB interface. It is totally compatible with the existing Firebird control software and additional interface software is also available for engineers who wish to write their own control program.

The polarization control instrument integrates the EPC and the PCI into a single bench-top instrument. Fully compatible with the Firebird control software, USB and RS232 standard communication links and optional GPIB and Ethernet links are also available. Additional functionality is included in the bench-top version.

"The bench-top instrument brings together both modules into a compact, easy-to-use format, allowing us to introduce additional functionality to widen flexibility. We are particularly pleased, in line with customer expectations, that the technology we use allows us to offer them world-class quality instruments at a highly competitive price," Dr. Ian Giles, CEO of Phoenix Photonics.
