What is Fan-out Fiber Optic PLC Splitters?
Fan-out Fiber Optic PLC Splitters is mainly used for 0.9mm optical fiber where the ribbon fiber can be converted to 0.9mm optical fiber through fan-out. Fiber adaptor can be provided both for the input and output ends of this kind of splitters so that they can be used directly to meet the low demand on the size of the splitter. For instance, all kind of precision splitter insertion box and splitter wall-mounted cabinets.
Fanout Splitter comes with fan-out kits and terminated ends. It features low PDL low excess loss, low insertion loss. The fanout kit is a set of empty jackets designed to protect the fragile tight buffered strands of fiber cables that require individual termination without splicing any fiber pigtail or needing to mount any protective enclosure. It is normally an option with fiber distribution cable, or sometimes loose buffer or ribbon cable, because these types of optical fiber cables contain multiple strands that are designed for a permanent termination.
Fiber optic splitters, also referred to as optical splitter, or beam splitter, is an integrated wave guide optical power distribution device that can split an incident light beam into two or more light beams, and vice versa, containing multiple input and output ends. Optical splitter has played an important role in passive optical networks (like EPON, GPON, BPON, FTTX, FTTH, etc.) by allowing a single PON interface to be shared among many subscribers.
