 The TIA-500 optical receiver is a convenient, easy to use optical to electrical converter. It is extremely useful in a variety of laboratory and field service situations where a quick check of the operation of a laser source, optical transmitter, or the output of a fiber optic communications link is required.

The use of surface-mount construction techniques permits the unit to be mounted directly on the vertical input BNC connector of your oscilloscope or digitizer. Simply energize the battery powered unit and the optical signal presented to the fiber input port is faithfully reproduced on the oscilloscope screen.
