Fiberdyne Labs, Inc. Variable Fiber Optic In-line Attenuators (VOA)

Variable Fiber Optic In-line Attenuators (VOA)

 

Introduction:
   To reduce signal power in a fiber-optic link. This precision devise can adjust the amount of attenuation, by very small amounts. It can also add large loss to an optical circuit.

Conceptual Usage:
    Attenuation is used, where signal power is too high. For example, in a fiber-optic link, a transmitter may overwhelm the receiver with too much power, or the link may be too short for adequate losses. In each case, too much power may damage or saturate the detector (i.e. receiver). Attenuation reduces the power to an acceptable or usable level. Variable attenuators permit the user, to control the level of power reduction.

 

Features:
  •  - Complies with Telcordia GR-910
  •  - Beam-blocking technique for higher power handling
  •  - Pigtail fiber cable can be used as a cable assembly
  •  - Connectors Types: SC, SC/APC, LC, LC/APC, ST, FC, etc.

 

Standard Configurations:
  •  - Inline-style
  •  - Pigtail fiber at both ends

 

Options:
  •  - Fiber types:
          - Multimode (50/125 or 62.5/125)
          - Single-mode (9/125)
  •  - Fiber pigtail lengths
  •  - Connectors: with or without

Custom Lengths:
The Fiberdyne Labs, Inc. VOA is available with 1 meter or 2 meter total length of cable. Due to the manufacturing process it is difficult to make the In-Lin VOA longer, however, Fiberdyne Labs, Inc. can splice on addional cable to facilitate custom requirements.
