Planar Lightwave Circuit – PLC Splitter



PLC Splitter Datasheet

Go!Foton’s PLC Splitters provide high performance with very low insertion loss, excellent uniformity and temperature stability, and low PDL. They are designed for demanding requirements over a wide operating wavelength range (1260 ~ 1650nm) and are GR-1209-CORE, GR-1221-CORE specification compliant.  The splitters are pigtailed with Bend-Insensitive Single Mode fiber (Bend Radius 15mm) to achieve a robust, compact package that is durable for field handling. The splitters are available in 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 channel configuration with a variety of connector choices.
