    The 10/100/1000 Copper Tap provides a complete copy of data from a full-duplex copper link to your network analyzer. First, the tap replicates the full-duplex signal from the network. Then it sends one signal back to the network and the other signal to a monitoring device equipped with a dual-receive capture card.

    Use the tap with all types of equipment—network and protocol analyzers, security monitoring devices, remote monitoring applications, RMON probes, and more.

    The tap operates passively and works regardless of traffic levels. Once you install the Tap, you can leave it in permanently without interfering with network operation and minimizing points of failure. You can even connect and disconnect different monitoring devices without interrupting the network.

    A Copper Tap Rackmount Bracket (TS253) (sold separately) holds three taps.
