OCM-C C-band Optical Channel Monitor
OWL’s C-band optical channel monitor (OCM) provides users with quick and accurate optical channel measurement for DWDM networks using the wavelengths specified in the ITU G.694.1.

Features include: user-definable optical power threshold, selectable channel spacing (50 & 100 GHz), and data storage.

Data can be viewed either as a bar graph or in tabular format, and the LCD display will automatically rotate based on the orientation of the OCM unit. Viewing in landscape mode allows for more viewing detail.

Two frequency/wavelength ranges available; see specifications below*.
