Fixed Attenuators

Fixed attenuators from Timbercon offer defined control of optical signals in both integrated and add-on products. Depending on the project or need, fixed attenuators can limit, or attenuate, the amount of light passing through to the exact level your project or application requires.

Timbercon fixed attenuators are used in applications where a pre-determined amount of light loss is specified. Though its applications range widely, fixed attenuators are most commonly used for test and measurement, optical sensors, and telecommunications applications.

Available in both inline and terminator/build-out styles, Timbercon fixed attenuators offer multiple options including SC, LC, ST, FC, and MU connector types and definable attenuation values from 1db to 20dB.
