An improved « plug & play » interferometric system for quantum key distribution is presented. Self-alignment and compensation of birefringence remain, while limitations due to reflections are overcome. Original electronics implementing the BB84 protocol makes adjustment simple. Key creation with 0.1 photon per pulse at a rate of 325 Hz with a 2.9% QBER – corresponding to a net rate of 210Hz over a 23 Km installed cable was performed.
