Optical Attenuators

The MEXFOSERV® Fiber Optic Attenuators provide superior performance for all single-mode in-line attenuation requirements . Standard attenuation values are 5, 10 & 15 dB and are available in SC, FC. ST, LC & MU connector configurations. Attenuation is achieved by controlled absorption of light energy. MEXFOSERV® is one of the only manufacturers of attenuators in North America which allows us to better control the quality and lead times.
