Brand: FCA

Product Details

Optical couplers, otherwise known as splitters, are passive devices that distribute optical power. They are designed to split or combine the received signal, providing it with one or more outputs.






Product Description

The 1x16 PLC Splitter SM G.657A SC/APC 2.0mm 1m - CONNECTICO (Part number: CO-S-PL-116-BB-2000-SCA) from FCA is a PLC type with a SC /APC connector and 1x16 configuration. Fiber optic splitters are passive component that split the fiber and its signal. The signal is sent along of fiber and when it reached a fiber optic splitter, the signal is divided into two or more signals.

Optical couplers, otherwise known as splitters, are passive devices that distribute optical power. They are designed to split or combine the received signal, providing it with one or more outputs.

Manufactured using the PLC (Planar Lightwave Circuit) method, they provide a high standard for applications in high-density locations. They are used in P2MP and WDM networks, where the optical signal coming from the central facility, with different power and length, is divided among many subscribers.

Optical splitters are characterised by high reliability, stability and directivity, while ensuring low insertion loss. They are terminated with any type of connector and come in several housing versions.


  • telecommunications network infrastructure
  • passive and active xWDM, CATV network devices
  • passive and active FTTx network devices


  • Power splitter made in PLC planar technology
  • PLC technology allows better transmission parameters and smaller size than FBT welded technology
  • uniform distribution of input signal power among many outputs
  • combining signal from many inputs to one output
  • point-to-multipoint signal transmission in tree topology networks
  • wide optical window ensures parameters stability in the whole band 1260 to 1650 nm

Fiber Type (ITU) - OS2 G.657.A2

Each type of single-mode fiber has its own area of application, and the evolution of these optical fiber specifications reflects the evolution of transmission system technology from the earliest installation of single-mode optical fiber to the present day. Choose the right fiber is very important for each project/installation. The OS2 G.657 standard single-mode fibers were developed to allow a better bending radius regarding the G.652 standard. For the OS2 G.657 fiber there are 4 subcategories: G.657.A1, G.657.A2, G.657.B2, G.657.B3.

The G.657.A2 fiber type is characterized by 7.5 mm minimum bending radius. These specifications of the G657 fibers allow to have a better cost-efficiency due to compact cable designs and reduced space requirements. Find some benefits when using the G.657.A2 fiber type:

  • Low attenuation;
  • Excellent macrobend performance (low bending radius);
  • Flexibility;
  • Cost-efficiency.

FO Connector Type 1 - SC

SC FO Connector is a type of fiber optic connector that uses a 2.5mm ceramic ferrule to align and connect optical fibers. Used in high-speed data communication networks. Provides low insertion loss and high return loss. The connector is easy to install and provides a secure, reliable connection for both single-mode and multimode fiber optic cables. Its locking mechanism ensures a stable connection and the push-pull design makes it easy to connect and disconnect. The SC connector is commonly used in data centers, telecommunication rooms, and other high-density fiber optic installations.

FO Polish Connector 1 - APC

APC (Angled Physical Contact) FO Polish Connector Type 1 is a fiber optic connector that uses an angled endface to achieve low back reflection and insertion loss. It features a 1.25mm ceramic ferrule and is commonly used in telecommunications and data networking applications where low back reflection is critical. The APC connector offers high precision and reliability, making it suitable for use in single-mode fiber networks. However, the angled endface of the APC connector requires special polishing techniques, making it more expensive than other connector types.

Fiber Mode - Single Mode (SM)

Single mode fiber uses a LASER light source, is a type of optical fiber with a small core diameter that allows only one mode of light to propagate. It is used in telecommunications and data transmission systems to transmit signals over long distances with low attenuation and high bandwidth. Single mode fiber is ideal for high-speed and long-distance applications, such as internet backbone networks, cable television networks, and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services. Its narrow core reduces the dispersion of light, allowing signals to travel further and faster than with multimode fiber.
