Fiber optic attenuators are used in the fiber optic links to reduce the optical power at a certain level. FiberMania supplies various kinds of fiber attenuators, including SC, ST, LC, FC, MU, and variable fiber optic attenuators.
The most common fiber optic attenuators are the female to male type, which is also called a plug-in attenuator. They are with ceramic ferrules and there are various types to fit different kinds of fiber optic connectors. Fixed value fiber optic attenuators can reduce the optical light power at a fixed level, for example, a 15dB SC fiber optic attenuator will reduce the optical power 15dB and utilize a SC male to female attenuator. Variable fiber optic attenuators are with adjustable attenuation range. We also manufacture attenuated fiber optic patch cables, their function is same as attenuators and are used inline.
Every single fiber optic attenuator is strictly tested during the production and can be delivered in a very short period.
