Multimode Attenuating Patchcords


  • 850 and 1300 nm operating range
  • Very good attenuation uniformity
  • Very low sensitivity to changes in modal distribution
  • Patchcord without splices or bulges
  • 900 μm or 2.0 mm cable, with customized length


  • Light sources and detectors
  • Testing systems
  • Optical telecommunication networks
