   The Agilent/HP 8156A is a high performance attenuator for single-mode and multimode applications. Options are available to select the desired return loss performance (up to 60 dB). An optional 13 dB monitor output allows you to measure the signal power at the output of the attenuator. Using the built-in back reflector mode and an external reference reflector (821BR), the 8156A can be used as a programmable back reflector to measure component and system sensitivity against reflections. The attenuation range is 60 dB with 0.001 dB resolution between 1200 nm and 1650 nm. Due to a novel single filter design, no ranging occurs. This completely eliminates dark spots or potential attenuation overshoots or undershoots. Attenuation accuracy is typically better than ±0.05 dB with a polarization sensitivity of less than 0.02 dB peak-to-peak.

  This option guide describes the options available and how they should be ordered. Options cannot be used without the mainframe Agilent 8156A and two or three Agilent connector interfaces, such as the Agilent 821FI.

  • Agilent 8156A Non-modular mainframe for optical attenuator
  • Option 100 Standard performance version with 35dB return loss and straight contact connectors; two connector interfaces required
  • Option 101 High performance version with 45dB return loss and straight contact connectors; two connector interfaces required.
  • Option 201 High performance version with 60dB return loss and angled contact connectors; two connector interfaces required.
  • Option 121 High performance version with 45dB return loss and straight contact connectors built-in monitor output (13dB tap), three connector interfaces required
  • Option 221 High performance version with 60dB return loss and angled contact connectors built-in monitor output (13dB tap), three connector interfaces required
  • Option 350 Standard performance version for 50/125 µm multimode fibers; two connector interfaces required
