Fiber optic attenuator, also named optical attenuator, is a small device developed to reduce the power level of an optical signal. The receiver may be damaged When the optic signal arriving at the receiver is too strong. The attenuator can be used to avoid it to happen. The MPO fiber attenuator contains doped fiber and is suitable for both 1310nm and 1550nm operations. Instead of using an individual attenuator for each path, the MPO attenuator allows for even attenuation of signal power across the entire span with just a single component. It provides a valuable approach for network operators seeking to reduce both cost and the volume of components necessary to run and maintain 40G and 100G optical transmission systems.
Available with attenuation values ranging from 1dB to 30dB. Low insertion loss makes this MPO attenuator an ideal fit for those seeking the perfect scenario of high-performance characteristics and costs savings.
