Planar lightwave circuit splitter (PLC Splitter) is a type of optical power management device that is fabricated using silica optical waveguide technology. It features small size, high reliability, wide operating wavelength range and good channel-to-channel uniformity, and is widely used in PON(EPON/GPON) networks to realize optical signal power splitting.
Optical PLC Splitter is one of the key components in FTTH, it’s typical parameter include input and output part cable length, connector type, light splitting ratio and package style. Just like fiber optic patch cable, PLC splitters are usually with 0.9mm, 2mm or 3mm cables. 0.9mm outer diameter cable is mostly used in blockless/steel tube package fiber optic PLC splitters, while 2mm and 3mm cables are mostly used in box type package fiber splitters. Usually, PLC splitter is use G657A1 fiber, typical connectors installed on the fiber optic splitters are SC/UPC, SC/APC, LC/UPC, LC/APC or FC/PC type.
