Smarter Modular Variable Optical Attenuator Blade
Take your Optical Attenuation Beyond the Next Level
Coherent Solution’s MTP-1000 & VOA-Blade is a reliable, fast and high density attenuation solution for research and continuous-production environments. Each blade has an integrated powermeter for precise output power control, even with fluctuating input. With up to 9 VOA-Blades in a single unit, you have up to 36 individual attenuators – which can be controlled individually or in sync through one, intuitive software application.
VOA-Blade is designed to be used in continuous production environments, so that your testing can run reliably even when you are not around, 24/7. It is built to the highest standards using components with high Mean-Time-Between-Failure (MTBF) specifications to minimize any potential downtime in your production.
Stable Power Output
The built-in power meter and power stabilization function lets you set and maintain the output power stability even when the input power fluctuates. You will get reliable and repeatable test results, each and every time.
Select the Best Fit for your Application
You can choose the broad wavelength range model for versatility or the narrow wavelength models for the best accuracy and performance.

INTUITIVE AND FUNCTIONAL SOFTWARE INTERFACE
The control software for MTP-1000, Test Instrument Manager (TIM), uses graphical representation of the instrument for intuitive control of connected units. The same software controls different types of Blade modules to save you time and effort in control and set up of the test platform.
ULTIMATE SCALABILITY AND VERSATILITY BUILT-IN
With the modular architecture, you can set up a testing platform with just the right number of attenuators to suit your current requirement while future proofing yourself with the potential to add more.
Each VOA-Blade holds 2 or 4 attenuators, the MTP unit has capacity for 9 blades, enabling you with up to 36 attenuators per unit and up to 1024 units per configuration. The versatility doesn’t stop there, the LaserBlade, PowerBlade and SwitchBlade can be inserted alongside the VOA-Blade. Each LaserBlade holds 2 or 4 lasers of your choice (C or L band). All blades are controlled by the same intuitive software. This makes the MTP-1000 a future-proofed model of excellence.
Efficient Use of Space
MTP-1000 platform lets you make the most of your testing bench space by housing up to 36 individual attenuators in one mainframe. Its compatibility with other types of blade modules, such as the LaserBlade, SwitchBlade and PowerBlade enable you to replace a tower of stacked equipment with just one mainframe.
19-inch Rack Mountability
The MTP-1000 mainframe with the optional rack mounting brackets is compatible with any 19-inch rack for easy integration into your testing set up.
