With the rapid deployment of high speed fiber multiplexer, the possibility of having an un-terminated derived channel or branch increases. The single fiber connector mated to an unused adapter or coupling is the source of back-reflection. The fiber optic terminator is usually used to terminate the unused fiber connector ports in fiber optic systems. Such unused ports will create unwanted return loss and degrade the whole network performance. Fiber optic terminators are passive components that can absorb light coming from the unterminated connectors plugs and reduce signal degradation in digital and analog systems.
Fiber optic terminators are designed to reduce back-reflections, which is typically found on laser-activated, connectorized access points such as those found on splitters, DWDM’s or fiber distribution frames. are functional devices using Metal-Ion Doped Fibers. By using these fibers, optical terminators can convert the optical power into heat and the power is attenuated inside the devices. The structures of the plug type optical terminators are simple and the power-proof and performance stability is superior. The fiber optic terminators also maintain the cleanliness of unterminated plugs and protect them from possible physical damage.
The plug type optical terminators are used to terminate dark fiber port on the fiber optic component. Their ceramic ferrule is polished with an angled or non-angled end face to reduce unwanted reflections from open ports. These optical terminator also provide improved personal safety over termination methods.
