OZ Optics now offers a new series of inline optical power monitor and tap couplers based on a revolutionary, patent pending technology. These taps and monitors provide a way to easily measure the signal intensity through an optical fiber in a simple, miniature package. They are ideal to use with optical amplifiers or DWDM systems for real time monitoring and feedback, or for fiber optic sensors. Competing monitoring systems typically use fused couplers to tap a fixed amount of light into another fiber and to a photodiode. This method is bulky and must be done using discrete components.


  • Optical power control devices
  • Channel balancing for Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) systems
  • Dynamic optical amplifier gain monitoring
  • Power monitoring
  • FTTH Network monitoring
  • Real time in-line test and measurement
  • Fiber optic sensors
