Variable Optical Attenuators (VOA)

VOAs - Blocking Pigtail Style

Key Features

  • Rugged and compact size
  • Wide wavelength range
  • Singlemode, polarization maintaining and multimode fiber versions
  • Low PDL and wavelength dependency
  • High power handling
  • High attenuation range


OZ Optics offers a complete line of low cost, compact PC board mountable pigtail style variable attenuators with low backreflection. These attenuators are designed to meet Telcordia standards. These attenuators can be used for 1300 nm and 1550 nm, as well as for C (1520-1570 nm), L (1570-1620 nm) and S (1470-1520 nm) bands, with minimal changes in the insertion loss.

Mounting holes provide easy attachment to PC boards and patch panels. The attenuators consist of two collimating lenses, prealigned for optimum coupling efficiency. A seal cap is used to seal the junction against temperature and humidity effects. The attenuator can even withstand immersion in water for extended periods of time.
