Passive Components

Passive network components are network components that usually do not require any electrical power input. Key passive components include couplers/splitters, wavelength-selective splitters (WDM, CWDM, and DWDM), circulators/isolators, and optical switches. They are available for both single-mode (SM) and multi-mode (MM) applications. These parts are crucial for building a powerful and error-free network. Using unsuitable passive components at key locations in a network could have a quick and noticeable detrimental effect on system performance.



Winding a large fiber spool is easy, but making compact, low loss fiber coils requires attention, precision, and skill.

These connectorized couplers are free of fiber pigtails and ready to be inserted in optical systems without the headaches of tinkering with fragile and messy fiber pigtails.

GPC-PMC

The polarization maintaining filter coupler can either split the light from an input PM fiber between 2 output PM fibers, or can combine light signals from 2 PM input fibers into a single PM output fiber.

This device can be used either as a polarization beam combiner to combine light beams from two PM input fibers into a single output fiber, or as a polarization beamsplitter to split light from an input fiber into two output fibers of orthogonal polarization states.

General Photonics’ fiber optic circulators are compact, high-performance light-wave components that separate signals traveling in opposite directions along fibers by transmitting signals from port 1 to port 2 and port 2 to port 3, while blocking signals traveling in the opposite directions.

The LT900 Series of 1xN (1x3-1x26) optical switches combine world class switching speed with low insertion loss and excellent repeatability.

AOI-Transceiver

AOI is a leading manufacturer of optical semiconductors for demanding analog and digital transmission systems. The portfolio includes analog optical components, digital optical components and optical data transceivers.

Calient's Optic Switch (OOO / All optical Switch) provides flexible, protocol-transparent, wavelength-independent, non-blocking connectivity between fiber optic links

FOV-Vorlauffaser-Ring

Lead and lag fibers are used to adapt the meter to the target. The use of a launch fiber protects the adapters on the meter and evaluates the start or end events.

The PL-300 family of products extend PacketLight optical network solution capabilities by providing a wide range of passive optical modules.
