Types of fiber optic attenuators:
1. Female to Male（ Plug style） optical attenuator (MU, SC, FC, ST, LC) UPC& APC polish available
2. Female-Female (Adapter style) fiber optical attenuator
3. In-Line style fiber optical attenuator
4. In-Line Variable fiber optical attenuator Attenuation scale:0~30dB.
Fiber optic attenuators are used in the fiber optic links to reduce the optical power at a certain level. We supply various kinds of fiber attenuators, including LC, SC, and ST, FC, MU of various types
Commonly used fiber optic attenuators are the female to male type, which is also called a plug fiber attenuator. They are with ceramic ferrules and there are various types to fit different kinds of fiber optic connectors. 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. There are also attenuation fiber optic patch cables available, their function is same as attenuators and are used inline.
