What Are Optical Multiplexers?

Posted on by FS.COM

An optical multiplexer, basically, a device, an input can be routed to the many different output, usually is 16. It utilizes fibr optic technology, is usually controlled by use of software and a totator block, and has an optical path that is actually coupled through several COL-UV/VIS collimating lenses. So, this is basically what a fiber optic multiplexer is…but what exactly do these devices do, and what are they used for? Well, that is a good question, and here is some information that might help you. Although it is hard to tell you all about optical multiplexer in an article, here are some things that may help you better understand the complex operation of equipment.

Basically, optical multiplexer using one side of a fiber optic cable, so a lot of things can send information in the same line. It is like a giant multiple input connector that allow several signal input, and then send a fiber optic cable. This information travels along this wire until, it comes into contact with a demultiplexer, which is like another attachment at the end of the cable that again splits up the signals and sends them on their way.

One of the most obvious uses for a optical multiplexer is the fact that it saves a lot money. Therefore, by placing one end of the multiplexer, a signal separator in another company can save a lot of money in the fiber optic cable.

To some extent, the resulting network information, and the way to travel, can be compared to a large highway. This large highway connections may be two very big city, in the morning, there may be a lot of traffic on a highway to go to other city. However, although all use the same highway, traffic is it does not actually come from the same place, also is not all in the same place.

On the highway traffic slowly from a different side of the road in a city, it will exit in the same way when it arrives at destination. In this way, the illustration is a lot like a fiber multiplexer/demultiplexer system, with the cars being the information, the cities being the multiplexers, and the freeway being the fiber optic cable.

This is a very basic method to describe the optical multiplexer how to work, and i hope it can help you to understand. It is not a too hard to master the concept of, even if the fiber is still a technology, can make people don’t use it all the time. The best way to learn about fiber optic cable is to either research it, or to actually work with it in a network or a system. A lot of different industries now make use of the speed with which fiber optic can deliver information. Light travels a lot faster than electric signals, after all. Optical Multiplexer is popularly with telecommunication operator and suitable in business for communication operator, government and kinds of entities. It is one of the most transmission equipment in point-point fiber optic network. Typical optical multiplexers are Video & Data & Audio Multiplexers, PDH Multiplexer.
