Fibertronics offers a wide range of Fiber Optic Attenuators.
What is a Fiber Optic Attenuator?
A fiber optic attenuator is an inline component installed in a fiber optic circuit that reduces the power in the optical signal. Often used to limit the optical power received by a photodetector and used limit of the optical power to the receiver. A fiber optic attenuator is also known as a optical pad and may be an external device.
Available for Singlemode 9/125, Multimode 50/125 and Multimode 62.5/125 applications. Our Male to Female buildout Optical Attenuation (pads) are availabe in all fiber modes. LC, ST, SC, LC/APC, SC/APC, FC and FC/APC types.
The adjustable attenuator uses a Air gap for the attenuation value and is available with a ST or FC configuration. The Variable Attenuator is our newest addition. The In-line type are custom manufactured to meet the length and connector type the customer needs. Our most popular type is the build-out male to female type attenuator.
Fibertronics attenuators are capable of withstanding over 1W of high power light exposure for extended periods of time, making them well-suited to Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA) and other high-power applications.
