Information about PLC Splitter


PLC Splitter (Planar light wave circuit splitter) is a type of optical power management device that is fabricated using silica optical Waveguide technology. They are designed for FTTx Passive Optical Networks, CWDM, DWDM and optical cable TV System.

We supply the PLC splitters including 1XN to 64 and 2XN to 64 types, they are with a wide range of working wavelength from 1260nm to 1620nm. The PLC splitter can be with optional various kinds of connectors and cable length, they feature compact size and very good optical performance. They provide a cost effective and space saving networking solution.

They are key components in FTTH Networks and are responsible for distributing the signal from the central office to numbers of premises. With it’s compact size, these splitters can be utilised in in-ground and aerial pedestals as well as rack mount systems. Two types of planar light wave circuit (PLC) products–chips and modules–have been developed to serve the rapidly expanding area of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH)systems.
