PLC planar waveguide optical splitter is an integrated waveguide optical power distribution component, based on a quartz substrate, which is one of the most important passive devices in the optical fiber links. It is an optical fiber junction device with multiple input terminals and multiple output terminals. Just like a coaxial cable transmission system. Optical network system also needs to couple, branch, and distribute optical signals, which requires a PLC splitter, It is especially suitable for connecting office end and terminal equipment in passive optical networks (EPON, GPON, BPON, etc.) and shunting optical signals.
PLC splitter can be written M x N, optical splitter M × N indicates that a splitter has M inputs and N outputs. The optical splitter used in the optical fiber CATV system is generally composed of an optical splitter of 1 × 2, 1 × 3, and 1 × N.
The main packaging methods are ABS BOX, 19-inch standard rack mount, insert type, mini type, bare fiber type, branch type, tray type, and so on.
According to the PLC splitter chip, PLC Fiber Optic Splitter can be classified as 1xN and 2xN PLC splitters, such as 1x4 fiber splitter, 1x8 plc splitter, 1x16 plc splitter, 2x32 splitter, 2x64 PLC splitters, etc. Besides, PLC Fiber Optic Splitters also can be classified according to different packages to meet clients' needs in various scenarios, including small size PLC splitter that needs to be used in terminal boxes and big size rack mounted PLC splitter that can be installed in racks. There are five types of PLC splitters we can see in the market: Bare Fiber Optical Splitter, Blockless Fiber Splitter, ABS Splitter, LGX Splitter, and Rack-Mount Splitter.
As the PLC Splitter manufacturer, PHXFIBER provides Fiber Optic PLC Splitter, including PLC Splitter Device, ABS Box PLC Splitter, LGX PLC Splitter, and Mini Type PLC Splitter.
