Product Details Supplier Info More products

Eigenlight’s Series 100 optical tap power monitors — available from Laser Components — are discrete component devices designed for measuring optical power in line of optical fibres.

The Series 100 devices are GR-468 Telcordia qualified and are suitable for use in 40Gbit and 100Gbit optical transport systems. Within a small hermetic package, each tap power monitor houses a stable optical tap and PIN photodiode; there are no lenses or evanescent couplings.

The devices maintain fibre continuity and avoid lenses or partial reflectors in the optical path. This ensures low insertion losses and good performance compared with competing technology, with directionality to more than 30dB, virtually no back reflection, high directivity and negligible polarisation-dependent loss.
