Optical Tap Monitors

Photonwares produce a wide range of optical tap monitors used for the measurement of power in optical fiber, offering cost, size, and performance advantages over competing technologies. It utilizes a patent-pending technology that taps light out of a continuous transmitting fiber onto an integral detector with low optical loss and directionality, as well we high optical power handling capability. They are available in virtually all types of single-mode and multimode fibers, as well as a wide range of PM fiber types, meeting the most demanding power measurement applications.  We uniquely offer >25dB high extinction ratio PM tap monitor and customer photodetector integration.   These GR-468 Telcordia qualified devices are used in 40G and 100G optical transport systems, as well as in high-power lasers, test instruments, and other applications.
