Attenuators

In optic data communication, receiving either too much or too little optical power will cause high bit error rates. A fiber attenuator is a unit used to reduce the power level of an optical signal. 

When it is necessary to attenuate the strength of an optical sign, for example to adjust power at certain wavelengths in an xWDM system or to protect a sensitive receiver during short transmission lines, you would need an attenuator. 

We offer a wide range of fixed attenuators, either as in-line ir as pluggable attenuators with different attenuations and fiber connector types such as FC, LC, SC, APC and UPC. Our high-quality attenuation joints are available from 1 to 20dB and ensure even and predictable attenuation.
