Optical Splitter - 19” Rack Mounted



Optical splitters for rack mounting are supplied in a 19” sub-rack for 1RU height. The units can accommodate splits up to 1x64 in 1RU with SC/APC or LC/APC connectors.

PBN offers a wide range of splitter configurations to suit the specific requirements of customer networks.

The OSF-19 was designed primarily for fiber-splitting within CATV headends, with a premium optical performance.

All inputs and outputs are available on the front panel and are clearly marked.

The front panel can be configured for special splitting arrangements, such as 4 x (1x4) and similar customized versions. This flexibility allows PBN to cater for any possible customer requirement.
