Types Of Hybrid Fiber Patch Cord

by Claire L. Fiber Network Solution, All in FiberStore

Recently, it is becoming apparent that fiber optic cable is steadily replacing copper wire as an appropriate method of communication signal transmission. They span long distances between local phone systems along with providing the backbone for most network systems. Other system users include cable television services, university campuses, office buildings, industrial plants, and electric utility companies. A fiber-optic method is like the copper wire system that fiber-optics is replacing. For example, fiber patchcord is probably the mostly used components within the fiber optic network.

Fiber patch cable (also known as fiber jumper cable or fiber patchcord) is utilized for connecting one optical device to a different, sometimes with two different connection types. You can find 4 connector types: LC, SC, ST and MTRJ which may be arranged in any configuration to match your connection needs. For example SC fiber cable (SC LC fiber patch cord), LC fiber patch cable (LC to ST fiber cable), ST fiber patch cable (ST to LC fiber patch cable, ST to SC fiber patch cable), ect.

Connector Types:

1. Same connector type fiber patch cable: This fiber optic patch cable has the same kind of connector for both ends, such as ST, SC, LC, FC, MTRJ, E2000, MU, etc.

2. Hybrid fiber optic patch cables: This fiber optic patch cable has different connectors on each side. One end may be SC and the other end could be LC, ST, FC, MTRJ, E2000, MU, etc.

We have to know more information regarding the fiber optic patch cable types, for example, the hybrid fiber optic patch cables, LC to ST fiber cable is terminated with LC fiber optic connectors using one end and ST fiber optic connectors however. Called Lucent Connectors, Little Connectors or Local Connectors, these snap-in connectors are generally useful for high density connections and are compatible with plug-and-play devices for example SFP modules and XFP transceivers. Straight Tip (”ST”) connectors start using a bayonet-style coupling type, enabling an easy twist-on and twist-off installation. Do not let all of these connectors of different sizes and shapes fool you. Different devices decide on different connector types.

FiberStore provides different types of fiber patch cords including common single-mode 9/125, OM1 62.5/125, OM2 50/125, 10G OM3/OM4 patch cables, armored patch cable, fiber optic pigtails, multi core patch cables, MPO/MTP fiber along with other special patch cables. Should you ever work that will require fiber patch or anything else fiber optic products related and are struggling to discover the products on FiberStore, avoid getting discouraged. Instead, call us or perhaps an email, we are able to support you in finding what you’re looking for as well as ensure it is custom.
