PowerPXIe 1500 Series – Optical Power Meter Module

Coherent Solutions’ PowerPXIe 1500 Series is a versatile, compact optical power meter with analog output for quick and accurate optical power monitoring and measurement.


  • Logarithmic analog output: output voltage is linear with optical power in dBm
  • Digital optical power readout
  • Fast monitoring of signal power from -60 to +10dBm
  • Available with external trigger input
  • Seamless PXI integration.



  • Perfect for analog control loops that require feedback of the optical power
  • Automate mechanical fiber positioning in your production environment
  • Quickly characterize modulator transfer functions
  • Measure insertion versus wavelength of your components using a swept laser.

Application Notes


Hardware Triggering of Coherent Solutions’ PXI Optical Modules

PXI’s integrated timing and hardware triggering capabilities offer a number of advantages over more
traditional software-initiated measurements. Learn how to make the best use of the hardware triggering capability present in Coherent Solutions’ PXIe photonics modules.

 Hardware Triggering Application Note


Transient Testing in PXI

Until recently, measurements of power versus time were only available using expensive oscilloscopes and optical-to-electrical converters. These solutions required complex synchronisation and suffered from poor power accuracy and dynamic range in addition to requiring extra equipment.

With the TRACE capability of the optical power meters from Coherent Solutions, you can now capture accurate time domain power meter readings over the entire range of the power meter (>70dB).
