C-Band & Extended C-band DWDM EDFA


C-band and Extended C-band DWDM Erbium-doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA) are among the Amonics’ specialist products. They are designed with high-power pump laser and high-stability pump combiners, renowned for robustness in high power boosting. The EDFAs feature high output power, high gain with very low noise, and they can be customized to accommodate a wide range of input signal levels. They are thus ideal for various demanding applications.

The turnkey microprocessor-controlled EDFAs provide illustrative alarms and status indicators. An integrated RS232 computer interface enables easy control, diagnostic functions and data acquisition. The EDFAs are available in both benchtop and rackmount casings.
