What accessories should I order with the 8162x optical heads?
The optical heads Agilent Technologies offers are used for optical power measurements. The heads will not be able to operate as standalone instruments. The following accessories are needed:
An interface module
An optical head adapter
The current optical heads are the 8162xB optical heads
The current mainframes are the 8163, 8164 and 8166 mainframes
The 8162xB optical heads work with both the 81618A single channel and 81619A dual channel interface modules.
All 81001xx series connector adpaters with integral D-shape are suitable for 5mm and 3mm heads.
Available connector adapters for the 8162x optical heads are:
(Can be used only with 5mm heads)
81003TD - MTP
81003PD - MPX
81003JD - MT-RJ
If the connector you use is not listed, you can either use a patchcord or use the 81000ZA blank adapter.
The 81000ZA is a cap which fits onto the optical heads. You will need to do the machining yourself to have your connector fit in there.
A third option is to design your own cap. The thread size of the optical heads is M32 by 1 mm (pitch) by 3 (rotations).
Available optical head adapters are:
(81000xx series are connector adapters (threated) for 5mm heads)
81000AA - Diamond HMS-10
81000FA - FC/PC/SPC/APC
81000GA - NEC D4
81000KA - SC/PC/APC
81000PA - E-2000
81000SA - DIN 47256/4108
81000VA - ST
81003LA - LC
Agilent Technologies also offers a bare fiber adapter to use with either the 8152x or the 8162x optical heads. The model number is 81000BA. This bare fiber adapter is for fibers with a cladding of 125 micrometer.
There are several optional accessories, which can be ordered depending on your specific needs. Please note that these accessories will work with the 81003xD adapters only if an additional magnetic D ring is used:
81002FF - integrating sphere
81000AF - 1 inch filter holder
81000DF - depolarizing filter
81001FF - 10 dB diffraction filter
81010BL - single mode fiber lens
81050BL - multi mode fiber lens
