The Multiple Application Platform (MAP) Tunable Filter (mTBF-A1) is optimized for the industry-leading VIAVI MAP-200 platform. Based on the previous-generation MAP, the MAP-200 is the first photonic layer lab and manufacturing platform that is LAN Extensions for Instrumentation (LXI)-compliant by conforming to the rquired physical attributes. Ethernet connectivity, and interchangeable virtual instrument (IVI) drivers. The MAP-200 platform is optimized for density and maximum configurability to meet specific application requirements in the smallest possible foot print.

The MAP Tunable Filter is a tunable bandpass filter that offers continuous wavelength tuning from 1520 to 1630 nm. It is used for applications requiring low insertion loss (IL), high rejection, narrow bandwidth and wavelength tuning resolution of 0.005 nm. The standard model has a maximum input power of 300 mW and the high power option provides a maximum input power of 1000 mW.

Two options are available:

  • The peak search option, used to find the absolute maximum transmission power within the filter's wavelength tuning range or a local maximum transmission power within a user-defined wavelength range
  • 10% tap option for power monitoring MAP Tunable Filter is ideal for applications where the user needs to suppress amplified spontaneous emissions (ASE) or isolate specific wavelengths. These applications include amplifier characterization, bit error rate (BER) testing and optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) measurement.

Key Features

  • -3 dB bandwidth available at 0.11, 0.25, 0.55 nm
  • Low polarization dependent loss (PDL) (<0.3 dB)
  • Wide wavelength range (1520 to 1630 nm)
  • Can be automated when used with MAP-200 LXI-compliant interfaces and IVI drivers

5 Jahre Batterie- und Taschenabsicherung*




* Nur 5-Jahres-Pläne

Batterie- und Taschenabsicherung
Batterien (Akkus) und Taschen nutzen sich mit jedem Ladezyklus bzw. in der normalen täglichen Arbeit ab. Um sicherzustellen, dass dieser Verschleiß Sie nicht behindert, umfassen die Support-Pläne mit fünf Jahren Laufzeit auch den Austausch dieser Komponenten.

Im Rahmen des 5-Jahre-SilverCare- oder -MaxCare-Support-Plans übernimmt VIAVI den einmaligen Ersatz eines verbrauchten Akkus und einer abgenutzten Tasche/Schutzhülle. Dieser Austausch erfolgt nur bei Einsendung des Gerätes für die Reparatur oder Kalibrierung an VIAVI. Koffer sind von dieser Regelung ausgenommen. Zudem gilt diese Absicherung nicht für Geräte, die ohne Akku/Tasche verkauft wurden.

Die Batterie-/Taschenabsicherung ist in den SilverCare- und MaxCare-Plänen mit 5 Jahren Laufzeit enthalten.

Die Messgeräte werden mit Kabeln und Adaptern als Zubehör ausgeliefert. Um stets zuverlässige und präzise Messungen und einwandfreie Testergebnisse zu gewährleisten, übernimmt VIAVI den jährlichen Austausch eines Zubehörteils.

Wenn ein Zubehörteil als defekt oder fehlerhaft eingeschätzt wird, repariert oder ersetzt VIAVI dieses Zubehörteil nach eigenem Ermessen, ohne dass dem Kunden hierfür Kosten in Rechnung gestellt werden. Das ersetzte Zubehörteil kann neu oder gebraucht (überholt) sein. Die zugrückgesandten Zubehörteile gehen in das Eigentum von VIAVI über. Es gelten die folgenden Einschränkungen: In jedem Zeitraum von 12 Monaten kann immer nur ein Zubehörteil ersetzt werden. Der Ersatz bezieht sich nur auf Zubehörteile, die für den Betrieb des Messgerätes als unverzichtbar angesehen werden und zusammen mit dem ursprünglich gekauften Produkt ausgeliefert wurden. Der Kunde ist für die Rücksendung des fehlerhaften Zubehörteils an VIAVI verantwortlich, wenn er an dessen Funktion zweifelt oder das Gerät für eine Reparatur oder Kalibrierung eingesandt wird.

Express Leihgeräte
Jetzt können Sie Ihre Kalibrierungen und Reparaturen planen und Ausfallzeiten vermeiden. Mit dem "Express Leihgeräte" Service erhalten Sie ein ähnlich konfiguriertes Messgerät, noch bevor Sie Ihr Gerät zur Kalibrierung oder zu einer unvorhergesehenen Reparatur einsenden.

Factory standards to ensure accuracy MAP

Why calibrate this product?

It is essential in manufacturing environment to ensure your product meets the published/customer requirements. Having accurate measurements ensures highest possible yields whilst maintaining product specifications. Ensuring all that the optical test equipment is performing as designed and calibrated is requirement in achieving that goal.

Viavi will validate measurement accuracies conform to published specifications.

Maintain connectors and pigtails.

Factory standards to ensure accuracy

VIAVI is a TL9000 company and calibrates this instrument based on general requirements for the competence of calibration and testing laboratories (ISO/IEC 17025:2005) to ensure your instrument is certified to measure accurately. Instruments that are out of calibration will produce unreliable measurements and can create false passing or false failing test results that often cause your team repeat work. We maintain, polish and clean all fiber connectors, fix pigtail connections that are internal to the product to ensure all parts stay in good working order and upgrade software / firmware to the latest approved release to enable enhancements. VIAVI Care Plans are the most cost-effective way to plan for calibration with a low, discounted price at the time of instrument purchase.  Fixed rate calibration can also be purchased later via a separate purchase order.

  • Ensure accurate measurements that meet design expectations and optical budgets.
  • Maintain ports and connectors to keep signals working properly and to extend the life of the instrument. For example, if optical connectors or lasers are bad or interface ports are loose then after repeated connection cycles, optical measurements may be inaccurate or damage may occur.
  • When manufacturing optical network products, accurate, reliable and repeatable optical measurement performance is essential to compliance with published/committed product specifications
  • Know that optical product design, product manufacturing and customer expectations are accurate and in alignment throughout product lifecycle

Most business common implications MAP

How will my measurements be affected if the product is out of calibration?

Inaccurate measurements may prevent verification of power levels or introduce other measurement uncertainties, errors and artifacts. Out-of-calibration instruments can result in design errors, production problems, end customer escalations, increased failure rates, audit non-compliance or even ultimately loss of business. 

What are the most common implications of these issues to the business?

  • Uncalibrated tools produce unreliable measurement results that can't be certified to specifications and may violate product agreements or ISO/TL9000 standards with your customers and their network equipment vendors.

  • Design errors resulting from inaccurate measurements can result in ongoing issues throughout the product lifecycle including poor yields, inaccurate optical budgets, increased return rates  and customer expectation mismatch.

  • Production costs can be elevated by increased re-work, reduced yield and inconsistencies between measurements.

Common Business impacts include:

  • Lost revenue, customer complaints and increased costs.
  • Quality audit failures.
  • For end customers, repeat product quality issues with vendors often cause added cost, customer dissatisfaction and loss of business.
