Build your Attenuated Patchcord

« Start Building your Attenuated Patchcord »


alker offer attenuated patchcords with a fixed attenuation in single decibel (dB) increments from 1 – 25 dB. The attenuator is integral to the fibre optic patchcord and is positioned 1m from ‘End A’ of the completed assembly.

An alker attenuated patchcord could be used in situations where a long length of fibre needs to be simulated or to reduce the power of the light to avoid damaging any sensitive receiver equipment.

alker holds on stock and can terminate most fibre optic connectors and cable so use our simple ‘stepped’ building process to build the assembly you need for your application.

The term fibre optic ‘patchcord’ is also referred to as a Jumper, Jumper cable, Lead, Assembly, Cable, Patch cable and more. They traditionally refer to a length of fibre optic cable which has been terminated at both ends with fibre optic connectors.

The term ‘pigtail’ traditionally refers to a short length of fibre optic cable with a fibre optic connector at one end and bare fibre at the other.
