Optic Fiber Reflector for monitoring FTTx system


A fiber optic reflector is an optical passive device constructed in a short segment of optical fiber that reflects particular wavelengths of light and transmits all others that are not within the specific reflection wavelength range.


Common types include adapter type and pigtail type. HYC's SC reflector is a kind of reflector based on SC connector package. SC/APC and SC/PC interfaces are available.


The reflector for 1650 nm reflects all wavelengths from 1645 nm to 1655 nm. With its low insertion loss at the transmission wavelength range and high reflectance at the reflected wavelength range it is the ideal optical termination for link monitoring of FTTx networks , FTTx reflectors are suitable for both point to point (PTP) and point to multipoint (PTMP) networks. They are preferably installed at the subscriber’s homes in order to highlight these positions in the OTDR trace by distinct reflections of the test signal.


HYC SC reflector has a transmission wavelength (1260~1625nm), high reflectivity, low insertion loss (≦1.4dB), high return loss (≧35dB),compact design and more features.


1.Create high reflectance at the termination of a PON without disturbing traffic
2.Test reflectance from the central office
3.Check optical continuity of subscriber when being added or when troubleshooting

With the implementation of the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) project, the coverage of the optical network is getting larger and larger, involving more and more users. Therefore, it is particularly important to detect and maintain the fault of the entire optical network quickly and accurately. Fiber optic reflector will be widely used in FTTx network, PON OTDR test, central office reflectivity test, communication system link detection and so on.
