PPC’s Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) Splitters are manufactured using silica glass waveguide circuits and extremely precise alignment of optic fibers in very small package. They split or combine light from incoming fibers to multiple numbers of outgoing fibers. They perform uniformly over a wide spectral range, with ultra-low losses. The GEN2 PLC Splitter Modules are enclosed in a chemically resistant housing and are compliant with Telcordia GR-326, GR-1209 and GR-1221 standards. They easily snap into and finger release from splitter slots in PPC Fiber Distribution Hubs or Splitter Chassis (no tools required).
