Product Details Supplier Info More products

Eigenlight’s Series 100 optical tap power monitors, available from Laser Components, are designed for measuring optical power in line of optical fibres and are suitable for applications such as test instruments and speciality lasers.

The GR-468 Telcordia-qualified devices house stable optical tap and PIN photodiodes; there are no lenses or evanescent coupling.

The patented process is utilised to scatter light out of the fibre-optic core and directly onto the integral detector.

According to the company, the Series 100 devices maintain fibre continuity and avoid lenses or partial reflectors in the optical path. This provides low insertion losses, with directionality to more than 30dB, virtually no back reflection, high directivity and negligible polarisation-dependent loss.
