Adapters & Plug attenuators
On our webshop you can find a wide variety of adapters, connectors and plug attenuators for optical fibre cables.
An optical fibre adapter is used to join two connectors together, as a coupling for connectors so fibre cables can be linked.
Our adapters are precision made to ensure perfect alignment of connectors, reducing insertion loss. In most cases, it is the critical part of the system that aligns the ferrule part of the connectors, keeping the fibres in perfect alignment.
Attenuators are passive devices used to reduce the amplitude of a light signal without significantly changing the wave itself. This method of attenuation allows higher performance than fibre splices, which function by misdirecting rather than absorbing the light signal.
Attenuators are often a requirement in applications where the receiver cannot accept the signal generated from a high-power light source. The plug type configuration makes it possible to use the attenuator directly on the ends of a patchcable and can as such be inserted into an adapter.
