Three Types of Fiber PLC Splitter


The expansion of the broadband network, and the resulting fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure, enables network organizers to adopt robust management and planning systems. The fiber splitter is a small part of the system. Today, this article focuses on the basics of splitter terminal boxes and their advantages.

Fiber splitter provides a cost-effective way for FTTH access networks. There are different types on the market. According to the configuration type of the fiber PLC splitter, there are three types of splitter junction boxes: plug-in PLC splitter, blockless PLC splitter and ABS PLC splitter.

The plug-in PLC splitter can accommodate a different configuration. If equipped with fiber pigtails and adapters, the splitter can provide a one-step solution for cable distribution. This box is usually made up of SPCC. It has two layers. One is light split. The other is stitching. Simple and easy access to and out of cable management, easy installation, maintenance and subsequent termination.

Blockless PLC Splitter is suitable for wall mounts with 1-3 entry ports, 8-24 outlet ports, and up to 24 FTTH ports. They have mechanical splicing, welding, splitting, wiring distribution and other functions. In addition, the number of pigtails and adapters installed in the terminal box can also be flexibly matched.

ABS PLC splitter has two cable ports, the largest cable diameter capacity and three connector trays. The capacity of the trunk cable is 12 single fibers. Suitable for corridors, basements, rooms and buildings of the external wall applications, with mechanical splicing, welding, splitting, wiring distribution and other functions.

Fiber PLC Splitter enables service providers to more effectively accelerate their deployment and is an ideal solution for deploying networks in FTTH applications. But also improves efficiency in different FTTX network applications. With a compact wall mount solution, these splitter can save a lot of space while maintaining manual access to the connector.
