1×3, 1×4, 1×5, 1×7 POF – Splitter

 

1x3 POF-Splitter1×3 POF – Splitter

The typical excess loss of 1×3 POF splitter is 2.3dB. This is achieved  by forming the POF waveguide endfaces at the splitter tip in a way to reduce losses from pendentives as far as possible (see Knowledge Base: Passive optical components).

At the splitter tip there is a ferrule for 2.2mm jacketed POF cable that can be fixed with a lock nut adapter screw. The splitter branches are equipped with metal crimp ferrules for 2.2mm jacketed POF cable, too.
Main application of 1×3 POF splitter are the fiber optic sensors; e.g. if light from 3 LED with different colours is coupled to a POF cable to realize a colour sensor.

It is feasible to isolate one or more splitter branches optically, in order to realize high crosstalk attenuation between the splitter branches.

 

1x4 POF-Splitter1×4 POF – Splitter

The typical excess loss of 1×4 POF splitter is 2.5dB. This is achieved  by forming the POF waveguide endfaces at the splitter tip in a way to reduce losses from pendentives as far as possible (see Knowledge Base: Passive optical components).

At the splitter tip there is a ferrule for 2.2mm jacketed POF cable that can be fixed with a lock nut adapter screw. The splitter branches are equipped with metal crimp ferrules for 2.2mm jacketed POF cable, too.

 

 

1x5 POF-Splitter with lock-nut adapter1×5 POF – Splitter

The typical excess loss of 1×5 POF splitter is 2.8dB. This is achieved  by forming the POF waveguide endfaces at the splitter tip in a way to reduce losses from pendentives as far as possible (see Knowledge Base: Passive optical components).

At the splitter tip there is a ferrule for 2.2mm jacketed POF cable that can be fixed with a lock nut adapter screw. The splitter branches are equipped with metal crimp ferrules for 2.2mm jacketed POF cable, too.

 

1x7 POF-Splitter with lock-nut adapter1×7 POF – Splitter

1×7 POF splitter have a typical excess loss of 4dB. A taper element is used to transform the light from the splitter tip to the 7 outgoing fibers as uniform as possible. As the design of 1×7 splitters is not completely symmetrical attention has to be payed to the required splitter symmetry.

At the splitter tip there is a ferrule for 2.2mm jacketed POF cable that can be fixed with a lock nut adapter screw. The splitter branches are equipped with metal crimp ferrules for 2.2mm jacketed POF cable, too
