These Optical power monitors contain both the photodiode and amplifier as a system to measure optical power.
Precision dual transimpedance input stages provide for high common mode rejection and linearity throughout the full dynamic range of the system.
These optical power monitors are particularly useful for the measurement and monitoring of optical power in the standard telecommunications bands. The output is a voltage linearly proportional to power.
The fast response time at high signal-to-noise ratio makes the OPM series particularly useful in system control feedback loops, such as fibre alignment systems. The high sensitivity and wide dynamic range allow measurement of fibre coupled lasers and LEDs alike.
Several options of photodiode material and optical input, including free beam input, make these units useful in a wide range of applications including non-telecom metrology.
The OPM series is insensitive to electromagnetic interference by design, an important factor when working in 'dirty' industrial environments. The case wings allow you to mount the amplifier on standard 25mm and 1" optical tabletops and are useful for OEM applications. Please see the datasheets for full details of the options available for each model.
