Low Cost, Affordable: The Progressive ODL system is the most cost-effective ODL system in the market for cases where the customer requires many different delay lines.
In case that the customer requires a significant amount of different delay lines (e.g. 8 to 256delay states), the Progressive ODL system is a one system solution that can scale the costs of utilizing many Single ODL systems or several Switchable ODL systems. Using a Progressive ODL system can provide you with savings of up to 200% -1000 % when compared to utilizing the traditional ODL systems depending on the number of delay lines.
Ease of Operation: The Progressive ODL system can operate with an Automatic Gain for all different delay states facilitating the use for the operator of the system. For example, a 255 us delay line when compared to 1 us delay line, has a variance of about 25 dB loss between the two states, which can be ‘automatically compensated’ to ±1dB. This feature enables a much easier operation and a user-friendly customer experience
Compact Design: The Progressive ODL System is much more compact than any other ODL architecture. The system is designed to fit where you need it, saving space and resources.
Easy Installation: The Progressive ODL system can be installed in a small space within a short time.
Low Complexity: Our Progressive ODL System easily integrates to your system. Because of its optimized design, it keeps the system simple as opposed to connecting it to many different ODL systems.
Reliability: Our Progressive ODL system has minimum number of fiber connectors, designed and tested as a most reliable ODL system.
Below is an example comparison between different ODL architectures with different number of delay states:
|Cost Factor vs. |
# Delays: 8-256
|Easy Operation |
(system gain var.)
|Progressive ODL system||1||Easy |
~ ±1 dB
|Switching ODL systems||~2-10||Uneasy|
(~25 dB variance)
|Single ODL systems||~10-50||Uneasy |
(~25 dB variance)
* The Reliability is also ‘High’ for Standard/Switchable Delay system with one/few delays.
RFOptic has created an innovative design of our Progressive Delay line system with unique features and optimized architecture of multiple delays, e.g. 8 to 256 delay states.
