Comparison of FBT Splitter and PLC Splitter

                                         Comparison of FBT Splitter and PLC Splitter
Fiber optic PLC splitter, known as Optical splitter as well, is suitable for a fiber optic signal to be decomposed into multi-channel optical signal output. It divides out a main light source into 1-N optical path and synthesizes 1-N optical path into a main light source and recovers this source. We Opelink are specilized in this product for many years. After many years , we have thousands clients from all over the words. The fast delivery, high quality and cometitive price make us become the first chice for the customer. Most important of all, our service and quality help us to get high reputation and gather more and more customers.

FBT Splitter

FBT Splitter is the traditional technology in which two fibers are placed closely together, typically twisted around each other and fused together by applying heat. The fused fibers are protected by a glass substrate and then protected by a stainless steel tube. The quality of FBT fiber splitter has improved over time and they can be deployed in a cost-effective manner. FBT splitters are widely accepted and used in passive optical networks, especially for where the split configuration is no more than 1×4.

The inner structure of the FBT splitter
The FBT splitter can olny work at three working wavelengths: 850nm, 1310nm and 1550nm, and cannot work in other wavelength environments. The splitting ratio of the FBT splitter can be adjusted as needed, so unequal splitters can be made, but the volume is relatively large therefore the reliability will be reduced, and the installation space is limited.


PLC Splitter
Fiber splitters are used to separate or combine optical signals. A PLC is a micro-optical component based on planar lightwave circuit technology and provides a low cost light distribution solution with small form factor and high reliability. PLC splitters have high quality performance, such as low insertion loss, low PDL, high return loss and excellent uniformity over a wide wavelength range from 1260 nm to 1620 nm and have an operating temperature -40℃ to 85℃. When high split counts are needed and small package size and low insertion loss is critical, a PLC splitter is more ideal.

The inner structure of the PLC splitter

The PLC splitter can work at 1260nm to 1650nm wavelength, which means wavelength range supported by the PLC fiber splitter is wider. Its splits the optical power evenly, and can equally distribute the signal to users, and there are many channels for a single device, which can reach more than 32 channels.
