Yokogawa Announces Release of AQ6370B High Cost-performance Optical Spectrum Analyzer with Dramatically Increased Measurement Speed
AQ6370B High Cost-performance
Optical Spectrum Analyzer
On July 30, Yokogawa Electric Corporation will release the new AQ6370B Optical Spectrum Analyzer for measuring the quality of optical communications equipment and optical components. The AQ6370B is a replacement model for the AQ6370 Optical Spectrum Analyzer, which was released in February 2006. The AQ6370B reduces the measurement time, by 50 percent compared with the AQ6370 for example, thereby improving measurement efficiency and reducing cost on the production line.
In addition, as service and price competition among communication carriers intensifies, further cost-cutting is required for optical equipment and components. Therefore, a superior cost-performance optical spectrum analyzer that delivers lower cost yet higher productivity is required by optical communications manufacturers. The AQ6370B has been developed to meet such requirements.
Released in 1998, the AQ6317 series have sold more than 3,000 units to capture the leading market share in the industry worldwide, followed by the AQ6370 to enhance measurement efficiency. The latest AQ6370B is expected to replace the AQ6317 series because a decade has passed since the series was released.
