Fibr Fiber Sources & Attenuators
GAO Tek offers a wide collection of sources & attenuators that include products such as optical attenuators, laser sources, light sources, and visible laser sources. These high quality and affordable products are designed to meet the needs of technicians and field professionals for a variety of uses such as telecommunications systems, industrial networks, data communication networks, and voice communication networks.
Functions of Sources and Attenuators
Optical attenuators are utilized to reduce or balance the power of the light transmitted from one device to another device. Attenuators are usually used when the light arriving at the receiver is too high, thus, it may overpower the receiving systems. Variable optical attenuators allow users to manually or automatically vary the attenuation of the signal in the fibers as it is transmitted through the devices.
Fiber optic light sources are designed to transmit signals from one place to another. These devices are mainly used to emit electromagnetic radiation in order to perform a specific task, whether detecting faults, breaks and microbends, characterizing link-loss or certifying LAN/WANs.
Visible laser sources empower technicians to isolate light leaks or breaks in both single-mode and multimode link. They additionally distinguish micro-bends, macro-bends, poor splices, and split connectors. These devices can be covered with different wavelengths to meet specific requirements such as single mode or multi-mode.
GAO Tek´s fiber sources and attenuators are portable and easy to use devices that provide quick and accurate testing results. These high-performance devices feature digital LCD screens that can display wavelengths, step sizes, current attenuations, input and output powers simultaneously, as well as battery power levels. Furthermore, they can operate with different frequencies and usually have several fiber ports so they can be used with different patch cords. Our products are manufactured according to international standards and are compatible with the fiber optic products currently available in the international market.
Applications and Industries
Fiber attenuators and sources are used in a variety of applications such as dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM), erbium doped fiber amplifier (EDFA), and other high power applications. Other uses for these devices include telecommunications systems, industrial networks, data communication networks, and voice communication networks. Additionally, they are used to emit electromagnetic radiation in order to perform a specific task, whether detecting faults, breaks and microbends, characterizing link-loss or certifying LAN/WANs.
