Firebird instrumentation

Share this on social media:

Phoenix Photonics has unveiled two new Firebird instrumentation range products that are a programmable polarisation control instrument and an associated polarisation controller microprocessor interface.

The microprocessor interface enables the electronic polarisation controller to be programmed directly from a computer through a simple USB interface. It is compatible with the existing Firebird control software and additional interface software is also available for engineers who wish to write their own control programme. The polarisation control instrument integrates the EPC and the PCI into a single bench-top instrument. Fully compatible with the Firebird control software, USB and RS232 standard communication links and optional GPIB and Ethernet links are also available. Additional functionality is included in the bench-top version.
