Attenuators are typically build out style male to female adapters that reduce the power level of optical signals by a fixed amount.

The closer receiving equipment is to the source of a transmit signal within the network, the “hotter” the signal will be.

Attenuators reduce the power level of a transmit signal to a safe level for use with receiving equipment.

They are also used for the testing of linearity and dynamic range in photosensors.

Small attenuation variation ensures accurate output.
