Distribution of an optical signal to multiple sources without the need for electrical conversion.

Optical splitters take an optical signal and split it into two or more outputs and functions like a distribution amplifier. The optical power at the input is split to the outputs at an even ratio:

  • a 1×2 splitter will output 50% of the input’s power on each output
  • a 1×4 splitter will output 25% of the input’s power on each output
  • a 1×8 splitter will output 12.5% of the input’s power on each output

Optical splitter modules use passive optical circuits. The modules fit the OG3-FR frame but draw no power. With no active components, modules offer a very high level of reliability.



  • Maximum input loss of 4dB on 50% split, 8dBm on 25% split, and 11dBm on 12.5% split
  • Optical input range: 1270nm to 1620nm
  • Passive modules contain no active components and offer very high reliability
  • Latching rear module to prevent accidental removal


  • Optical input / output connection: LC / UPC
  • Fits OG3-FR frame, no power required
  • 5-year transferable warranty
