Basic Knowledge about a Fiber Optic Splitter You Should Know
Fiber Optic splitters can be categorized as PLC fiber splitter and FBT fiber optic splitter. To understand them well, You should have a Basic Knowledge Fiber Optic Splitter. Here below you can learn it in 5 minuates to get the general idea about fiber optic splitters.
A fiber optic splitter is a device that splits the fiber optic light into several parts by a certain ratio. For example, when a beam of fiber optic light transmitted from a 1X2 equal ratio splitter, it will be divided into 4-fiber optic light by equal ratio that is each beam is 1/2 or 50% of the original source one.A fiber optic splitter is different from WDM. WDM can divide the different wavelength fiber optic light into different channels. fiber optic splitter divide the light power and send it to different channels.
Most Splitters available in 900µm loose tube and 250µm bare fiber. 1×2 and 2×2 couplers come standard with a protective metal sleeve to cover the split. Higher output counts are built with a box to protect the splitting components
Features of Fiber Splitters Couplers:
- Comes in Singlemode, Multimode 62.5, and Multimode 50 Fiber Modes
- Built with either 900µm loose tube fiber or 250µm bare fiber
- Available unconnectorized or with any fiber optic connector or combination: LC, LC/APC, SC, SC/APC, FC, FC/APC, and ST
- 1×2 and 2×2 available in many split ratios including; 50/50, 40/60, 30/70, 20/80, 10/90, 5/95, 1/99
ABS PLC Splitter Boxes / Modules
Teleweaver offers a wide selection of splitter boxes, and modules including Ruggedized ABS box PLC Splitters with a variety of options.
Basic Knowledge Fiber Optic Splitter of PLC Splitters
From one input fiber to multiple output fibers, PLC (Planar Lightwave Circuit) Splitters are Single Mode Splitters with an even split ratio. Available split counts are: 1×4, 1×8, 1×16, and 1×32.
Basic Knowledge Fiber Optic Splitter Single Mode Dual Window Couplers
Singlemode Dual Window Couplers are Single Mode Splitters, with a defined split ratio from one or two input fibers to 2 output fibers. Available split ratios are: 50/50, 40/60, 30/70, 20/80, 10/90, 5/95, 1/99, 60/40, 70/30, 80/20, 90/10, 95/5, and 99/1
Multimode Fiber Optic Couplers are Multimode Splitters,with either 62.5µm or 50µm fiber core size, and a defined split ratio from one or two input fibers to 2 output fibers. Available split configurations are 1×2 and 2×2 with split ratios of: 50/50, 90/10, and others.
