Adapter Attenuators

Fiber attenuators FO are passive parts of the fiber optic link used for optical power reduction of the transmitted signal so that it fits the working range of a receiver. A specific application of zero attenuators is to buffer valuable connectors for example in measuring equipment, where any physical damage or scratching would distort measurement accuracy and would require expensive repair. Details and datasheets can be found in our Products section.
