40G-BiDi Fiber tap (FTP-1518)
Model: FTP-1518
Monitor outputs are at 850 and 900nm. The FTP-1518 is completely passive and uses no electrical power.

These network taps are ideal for security applications, network monitoring and anywhere you need to see all the data that only an In-Line solution can provide. Invisible to the network, completely passive and fault-tolerant, fiber taps will not affect network performance or integrity.

They provide permanent In-Line access to network links - eliminating the need for network connectors to be disconnected and connected each time a segment needs to be analyzed. Our taps allow you to view layer 1 and 2 errors not seen when performing network monitoring using SPAN ports.
