Fiber Optic Patch Cords

As an industry leading supplier of fiber optic products, Fiber Savvy provides Fiber Patch Cables terminated with a complete line of connector types. ST, SC, LC, MTRJ, we’ve got them all! We offer the most comprehensive selection of fiber optic patch cords to suit your project requirements. Our fiber patch cables are available with PC, UPC, and APC polishing types to meet your standard or customized configuration.

Fiber Savvy supplies both single mode and multimode fiber optic patch cords which have all been inspected with interferometers and tested with insertion loss and reflection test equipment. This ensures that every fiber optic patch cord we ship is meets industry standards for exceptional performance.

A popular LC to LC fiber optic patch cord Fiber Savvy offers is the Fiber Patch Cables, LC to LC Single Mode, Duplex, 9/125. This duplex fiber optic patch cable is terminated with LC fiber optic connectors on each end. This type of fiber optic patch cord is commonly used for high density networking with plug and play devices such as SFP modules and XFP transceivers. The connectors easily snap-in for quick installation, and are available in lengths from single foot to up to 30 feet.

Our LC to LC fiber optic patch cords work great with our patch panels like the Fiber Patch Panel, Swing-Out, Up to 24 Ports, 1U. This single rack mount unit accommodates up to two adapter panels and two splice trays. It is designed to handle both patching and splicing in one single unit. It fits either 19” or 23” rack shelf mounting, and has a swing out master panel to facilitate termination and splicing.

We are an end-to-end provider of fiber optic solutions. The Fiber Splice Tray, 24 Single Fusion Splices, Aluminum, 0.5"x12.25"x4" is designed to route and safely store fiber optic cable and protect the splices. This unit has a capacity of 24 single fusion splices while providing both protection and organization. It has adhesive backed fiber insert holders and comes with cable ties.

Connector Performance

Controlling connector and face geometry of fiber jumpers is crucial for solid network reliability. Radius of curvature, apex offset, and fiber undercut are the three critical parameters that effect long-term connector performance. These parameters are closely monitored and controlled throughout the automation process, thus assuring the highest quality in each and every connector assembly. Because our fiber patch cables include first-rate connectors, you can purchase from Fiber Savvy with confidence.

Radius of Curvature

Another essential connector characteristic is radius of curvature. This describes the radius of the end-face surface measured from the ferrule axis. The correct radius of curvature is necessary to control the compressive forces on the connector end-face. Radius of curvature values between 10 to 30 mm are recommended to avoid fiber damage and to ensure low reflectance and insertion loss. Within this range, your fiber optic patch cables will perform at a high level.

Apex Offset

Apex offset is the displacement between the apex and the sphere that fits the ferrule and-end face and the center of the fiber core. Excessive apex offset can lead to lack of physical contact of the fiber cores and an increase insertion loss. A typical apex offset of 50µm is recommended. Values greater than 50µm can reduce finer-to-fiber contact and cause increases in reflectance over the operating temperature. Apex offset is an important, oft-overlooked aspect of fiber optic patch cables.

Fiber Undercut/Protrusion

Fiber undercut is the distance of the fiber above or below the fitted spherical surface of the ferrule. Proper undercut guarantees that fiber-to-fiber contact will always be maintained over the operating temperature range. An undercut value of ± 50 nanometers is recommended to avoid air gaps between fibers. Larger undercut vales can cause changes in reflectance and insertion loss. Excessive fiber protrusion can increase the compressive load at the end of the fiber causing fiber damage or failure of the fiber-ferrule epoxy bond.

The preceding considerations can help you choose the right fiber optic patch cords for your network. Don’t see what your’re looking for?
