Fiber optic dividers play an increasingly important role in today’s optical networks. From the FTTx system to the traditional optical network, not only allows many users to share a fiber optic interface, but can also help users to expand the function of optical network circuits. Today we will give you a brief introduction to the fiber splitter manufacturer.
With the continuous development of modern technology, a variety of fiber optic dividers appear in the market.
The two most common types: FBT fiber splitter and PLC fiber splitter
In addition to the size and appearance of the difference, there are many differences elsewhere.
The FBT fiber optic splitter is made of steel, fiber optic, heat shrink tubing and other common materials. Because the cost of these materials is not high, the manufacturing technology of the device is relatively simple, so the price of the FBT fiber splitter is cheaper. And the technology of the PLC fiber splitter is more complicated and expensive. It uses semiconductor technology for production, which greatly increases manufacturing difficulty, so its cost is higher. 2. Working wavelength The FBT fiber splitter supports only three wavelengths: 850nm, 1310nm and 1550nm, c does not work in other wavelength environments. The PLC fiber splitter can support the operation in
1260nm to 1650nm wavelength. You can see that the wavelength range of the PLC fiber splitter is wider. 3. Divided proportion The split ratio of the FBT fiber splitter is as high as 1:32, while the PLC fiber splitter can be raised to 64, this makes the PLC fiber splitter more reliable. In addition, depending on the most advanced technology, the PLC fiber splitter can divide the signal equally. 4. Temperature Temperature is the key factor that affects the performance of optical devices. Therefore, good temperature stability plays a vital role in the performance of the equipment.
The FBT fiber splitter can work stably at -5 ℃ ~ 75 ℃, while the PLC fiber splitter can operate in a wider temperature range of -40 ℃ ~ 85 ℃, e It can achieve excellent performance in such environments extremes. In addition to the above differences, there are other differences between them. For example, compared to the FBT fiber splitter, the size of the PLC fiber splitter is more compact. Therefore, the PLC fiber splitter is more suitable for high density applications. I hope the previous introduction of the FBT fiber splitter and the PLC fiber splitter will help you better understand the fiber splitter and help you choose the right fiber splitter!
