WDM COUPLERS

This fused fibre, WDM, high isolation, bandpass coupler allows separate optical signal streams each of 1310 and 1550 nm wavelengths to be combined and/or divided, for transmission on a single fibre. The coupler is of high precision construction and housed in a rugged, strong and sturdy housing.

Connecting SM optical fibre cord lead length for both 1310nm and 1550nm systems; and for the single WDM system SM fibre cord lead can be supplied to Customer requirements. The fibre cord leads are 3mm dia, single mode, optical fibre cord, terminated in: A/SC; and LC optical connectors.

This coupler offers: high performance; isolation; directivity (ie low crosstalk); return loss; low PDL, and low insertion loss. The coupler will provide, a reliable, service life in an Exchange or CO over a temperature range of – 40 to + 85 degrees Celsius. Other connector types, eg ST, SC, FC, LC, etc, with desired optical fibre cord length/s, are available separately. The A/SC connector lead is labeled line, lead length 150 – 200mm. The LC connector leads are labeled as 1300nm and 1550nm, lead length 2.1 metres. Also supplied is a length of double sided tape.

SINGLEMODE LAUNCH FIBRE

This 250 micron, “launch” singlemode optical fibre x 1km long, is used with OTDR instruments to inspect and/or test or look for faults on a long fibre cable link, that could be 50 km long, or of a greater length. The launch fibre allows the OTDR to interrogate the complete fibre link length, from end to end, and allows fibre inspection/viewing from the first connector. The OTDR can pick up: splice losses; high point losses and typical fibre attenuation over the cables link length. The ends of the launch fibre are connected to A/LC and A/SC connectors, for ease of use. The 1km of launch fibre cones in a strong, foam lined box for transport, storage and handling.

SINGLEMODE THRU ADAPTORS, SC-UPC

The duplex ( ie two way) / simplex  through connector (or adaptor) is mounted in a patch panel, of an optical fibre termination unit, or OFDF, and allows a pigtail to be connected to a patch cord. The pigtail is usually fusion spliced to an optical fibre of anexternal cable; and the patchcord connects to transmission equipment. A through connector allows the optical transmissionsystem connection to be quickly made and broken, as required. This enables fault finding and maintenance activities (such as service restorations & re‐arrangements) to be undertaken quickly and efficiently.

The Zirconia sleeve through connector is typically used on single mode optical fibre systems.

SINGLEMODE THRU ADAPTORS, SC-APC

The through connector (or adaptor) is mounted in a patch panel, of an optical fibre termination unit, or OFDF, and allows a pigtail to be connected to a patch cord. The pigtail is usually fusion spliced to an optical fibre of an external cable; and the patch cord connects to transmission equipment. A through connector allows the optical transmission system connection to be quickly made and broken, as required. This enables fault finding and maintenance activities (such as service restorations & rearrangements) to be undertaken quickly and efficiently. The SC connector is a compact size unit. The adaptor unit comprises a plastic body, and inner part with a precision alignment mechanism; which is made to demanding specifications. The alignment sleeve and precision body ensures: reliable, long term, mechanical and optical performance for the through adaptor. The through adaptor is capable of a reasonable number (eg 500) of matings/unmatings, and of withstanding normal (not excessive) handling forces/loads without suffering any damage or significant increase in optical performance. The assembly is capable of reliable operation in Exchanges or Repeaters over the temperature range of 25 degrees to + 70 degrees Celsius, and up to high levels of RH. Two way and four way through connector modules are also available.

The phosphor bronze through connector is typically used on multimode systems.

SC-UPC ATTENUATORS

Typically installed close to the Transmitting system (Tx), not the receive (Rx) system. Attenuators are used in line, in an optical transmission system, to reduce the signal strength, to safe and acceptable levels. This signal attenuation prevents unplanned outages due to equipment failure. These items are used in systems such as: Telecommunication Networks; CATV Networks; Data Communications Networks; Instrumentation and Local Area Networks. The Attenuator is manufactured to recognised and approved industry standards, and will achieve a 20 year service lifetime, under typical operational conditions. Each attenuator assembly is capable of a reasonable number (eg 500) of matings/unmatings, and of withstanding normal (not excessive) operational handling forces/loads without suffering any damage or significant increase in optical performance. The complete assembly is capable of reliable operation in Exchanges or Repeaters over the temperature range of –25 degrees to + 70 degrees Celsius, and up to high levels of RH.
