DIAMOND optical attenuators - precise and repeatable

Share this on social media:

Attenuators are used to adapt the transmitted light power to the characteristics of the implanted receiver. The in-line fixed attenuators (OAF) offer excellent reliability and repeatable amount of light loss (attenuation) via a doped fiber. This results in wavelength independent and stable attenuation values for typical wavelength bands used in telecommunication applications (1260-1360 and 1460-1580 nm). They are suitable for optical power up to 20dBm. They are available in SM PC/APC and MM PC for the following connector types: E-2000™, F-3000™, SC, FC, DIN, ST, Diamond; and are fully compatible with all respective connectors and adapters.

Main features of Diamond attenuators:

  • High repeatability
  • Attenuation values from 0 up to 30 dB
  • Power range up to 20 dBm
  • High Return loss > 65dB
  • Compatibility with all standard connectors interfaces
