Abstract

In this study, we present the design of the monitoring device used to monitor the status of all optical networks. It begins with the first type developed in direct connection between tapper and display. The second type of wireless technology applied to detect damage to the fiber optic transmitter which is placed on optical line. The status of optical line can be monitored from a distance and do not have a direct connection with tapper. The third type is improved from the second type which is used for multi optical lines. The status of each line can be monitored using only one instrument called a Portable Control Unit (PCU). With this tool built and maintenance work can be done easily and more effectively. The developed solutions are also inexpensive and environmentally friendly. Early damage detection is important to avoid any leakage of the laser in the event of damage (e.g., broken) on active optical lines. Finally, we proposed also the potential application of PCU in small world application such as in-building and in-ship security system to increase the surveillance, cost effective solution and ease of maintenance.
