Optical Attenuators are a means of reducing the level of a fibre signal. There are essentially two reasons for doing this - one, for artificially inducing a known loss into a system for testing purposes (for example to simulate a poor connection or a long fibre link) and two, for reducing the power received at an optical input to keep the level in the optimum range for the receiver and prevent saturation.
Doped? Air Gap?
The optical attenuators offered by MCL Data Solutions fall into two basic methods of operation: air gap and doped fibre. Air Gap is a method where a mating pair of connectors are spaced apart by a precisely measured distance to induce a known loss. This method suffers the disadvantage of increasing the back reflection. Doped fibre attenuators are made using a section of fibre which has been manufactured with an absorption agent within the core which blocks the path of a fixed amount of light.
