The Difference Between Fiber Optic Patch Cord And Pigtails
Oct 12, 2017

Fiber Optic Patch Cord are used to jump from the device to the fiber cabling link. There is a thick protective layer, generally used in the optical terminal and the connection between the terminal box.

Fiber Optic Patch Cord as a jump signal, connect the optical path of the device, the smaller the insertion loss Although the attenuation caused by the smaller, but blind pursuit of high optical parameters, Fiber Optic Patch Cord materials, technology must be greatly improved, need to pay high The cost, cost is not appropriate. In the design of the optical system, the design power of the light source will have a reserved amount, which is greater than the power of the actual application. By means of the optical attenuator, optical splitter and so on, the power will be reduced to the actual power required. So the connection of the Fiber Optic Patch Cord insertion loss to the carrier-class requirements on it. If you want to make the performance of the jumper better, such as interchangeability, reliability, consistency is improved, it is recommended that customers use jumper end face interference (3D) Fiber Optic Patch Cord, which is now the international high standard jumper Claim.

Pigtail is also called pig tail line, only one end has a connector, and the other end is a fiber optic cable core of the broken head, through the welding and other fiber optic cable core connected, often appear in the fiber terminal box, for connecting fiber optic cable and fiber transceiver (Also used between couplers, jumpers, etc.).

The fiber optic connector is a detachable (active) connection between the optical fiber and the optical fiber which precisely engages the two end faces of the optical fiber so that the light energy output from the emitted optical fiber can be coupled to the receiving fiber to the maximum, And minimizes the impact on the system due to its involvement in optical links, which is a fundamental requirement for fiber optic connectors. To a certain extent, fiber optic connectors also affect the reliability and performance of optical transmission systems.
