Fiber Optic Attenuators are used in the fiber optic links to reduce the optical power at a certain level. Fixed value fiber optic attenuator can reduce the optical light power at a fixed level, for example, a 2dB SC APC fiber optic attenuator.
Variable fiber optic attenuators are with adjustable attenuation range. Optical variable attenuator is a double window (1310/1550nm) of passive components. The variable optical attenuator could continually and variably attenuate the light intensity in the optical fiber transmission. Variable fiber optic attenuator could help simulate distance or actual attenuation in the fiber optic testing work by inserting a calibrated attenuation into the link. By using the variable fiber optic attenuator, technicians could verify the power margin received by testing the fiber optic link power budget. Variable fiber attenuator can help user vary the light power injected from a light source into the optical fiber. Important parameter of variable fiber attenuator include its insertion loss, reflection loss and attenuation range.
In fiber optic network, people may need to reduce or balance the power of the light transmitted from one device to another device, and in such cases, fiber optic attenuators will be used to control the output of the fiber light power level and also to reducing the power of the light in the fiber optic network.
