SC Fiber Optic Attenuator, Single-mode, Male to Female, Plug Type

SC fiber Optic attenuator is a passive optical device used to reduce the power level of an optical signal in a fiber optic communication system. SC fiber optic attenuator is critical in managing signal strength to ensure that the optical signal is within the optimal power range for the receiving equipment, preventing signal degradation and potential damage.

FOCONEC has SC/APC and SC/UPC single-mode optical attenuator available with fixed attenuation value, ranging from 1dB to 20dB generally.


  • Optical Fiber Communication Systems: Used to adjust signal levels to match the dynamic range of the receiver.
  • Testing and Measurement: Employed in test environments to simulate different distances and losses in the fiber network.
  • Data Centers and Telecommunication Networks: Essential for balancing signal power in complex network setups, ensuring consistent and reliable data transmission.
  • FTTx and PON Networks: Used in Fiber to the x (FTTx) and Passive Optical Networks (PON) to regulate the optical signal strength.

How to Choose the Right SC Fiber Optic Attenuator?

  1. Determine the Required Attenuation Value: Calculate the necessary attenuation based on the power levels of your transmitter and receiver.
  2. Consider the Operation Wavelength: Ensure the attenuator is compatible with the operating wavelength of your system.
  3. Check Connector Compatibility: Verify that the SC connector type fits with your existing equipment.
  4. Evaluate Performance Specifications: Look for attenuators with low insertion loss and high return loss for optimal performance.
  5. Quality and Durability: Choose SC fiber optic attenuator from reputable manufacturers to ensure long-term reliability and performance.
