How to Choose a Fiber Optical PLC Splitter?


As a simple passive component, the fiber optical PLC splitter evenly divides an input optical signal into multiple output optical signals, playing a significant role in EPON, GPON, BPON, and other application technologies. How to choose a fiber optical PLC splitter is also a problem.


1. The bare fiber PLC splitter


The bare fiber splitter is the simplest and most commonly used fiber optical PLC splitter in FTTX projects. This type of PLC splitter has optical fibers at all ends. Therefore, network engineers can freely splice according to applications. At the same time, the bare fiber PLC splitter only takes up a small amount of space in the process of routing. Hence, it can be installed in the fiber splice tray to provide distributed signals for FTTH.


2. The fiber optical PLC splitter of micro steel pipe type 


A fiber optical PLC splitter of micro steel pipe type looks like a bare fiber splitter. The main difference from the latter is that the fiber optical PLC splitter of micro steel pipe type uses a compact stainless steel tube package, which is usually terminated with an optical fiber connector.


3. The fiber optical PLC splitter with fanout kits


The fiber optical PLC splitter with fanout kits generally uses 0.9mm tigh-buffered optical fiber, which increases the length of the breakout ribbon fiber connected to the PLC chip. The adapter of this fiber optical splitter has a variety of splitting ratios, which can meet the user's requirements for different types of splitters.


4. The fiber optical PLC splitter of ABS box type


The fiber optical PLC splitter of ABS box type uses a plastic box to protect the splitter chip. The input fiber and the output fiber are on a layer of a light splitting waveguide made of the quartz substrate, which can provide easier and more flexible cabling. In addition to providing reliable protection, the fiber optical PLC splitter of ABS box type can also be installed in various cabinets.


5. The fiber optical PLC splitter of LGX box type


The fiber optical PLC splitter of LGX box type looks like an MTP distribution box. It puts the entire fiber optical PLC splitter in a metal box to isolate the distribution fiber embedded on the panel from the input fiber of the fiber adapter.


6. The fiber optical PLC splitter of the miniature cassette type


The fiber optical PLC splitter of miniature cassette type is currently widely used in FTTx projects. Especially when the FTTx network user's distribution space requirements are low, this type can provide quick installation, which is helpful for the project's rapid deployment.


7. The fiber optical PLC splitter of tray type


The fiber optical PLC splitter of tray type uses a space-saving package to better manage cables. However, it uses an international 19-inch design and can be deployed on ODF for good cable management and signal transmission.


8. The fiber optical PLC splitter of rack-mounted type


The design of the fiber optical PLC splitter of rack-mounted type meets the requirements of high-density data centers or servers. It can be firmly installed in a data center or server rack. Multiple ports can be added to the fiber optical PLC splitter, which is an ideal solution for high-density cabling.
