Uni-Directional Tap/DetectorDiCon's Uni-directional Tap/Detector is a high performance, hybrid component which taps and monitors optical signals in uni-directional transmission systems. Uni-directional Tap/Detectors reduce the cost of power monitoring by combining the tap and PIN photo-diode PIN in a single component without the need for an in-line isolator on the output port.
Applications:Uni-directional Tap Detectors enhance the accuracy of power monitoring by eliminating unwanted back-reflection and scattering from sources downstream of the device. Tap/Detectors with Corning SMF-28 fiber are designed for power monitoring in protections switches, line cards, fiber amplifiers, and OADMs. Tap/Detectors with polarization maintaining fiber are designed for power monitoring of signal or pump laser sources that use PM fiber pigtails.
