Products > Acrobat™> PM-TAP

Real time, polarization-preserving, linear polarization power tap monitor in a compact package. Boston Applied Technologies’ Polarization Maintaining power tap/monitor (PMTAP) measures PM fiber slow axis linear polarization output power. It is a compact solid-state device. The PM-TAP has a tap/output monitor and a photo detector; this eliminates the need for an external polarization-maintaining coupler and photo detector, substantially reducing cost and space requirements.
