Mechanical optical attenuator is a passive optical attenuator. The shape of the mechanical attenuator is just like the fibre adaptor. It can be applied in traditional optical network, optical testing project, FTTx construction and etc which the optical power may be over the limit of the equipment. The bulkhead mechanical attenuator allows the interconnection of two fibre patch cable. Female to male mechanical attenuator is assembled with a fixed type connector,so it can only be connected with one fibre patch lead. Both fixed value and variable value attenuator is available.
● Metal material makes it durable
● FC to FC connector
● Fixed 10dB attenuation value
● Guaranteed return loss of -55 dB.
● Protect equipment from being overpowered.
● Choose from five fixed attenuation values.
