Edit: Fiber cables   Date: 13-03-27

Types of fiber optic patch cables including SC, LC, ST, FC, MU, MTRJ, E2000, SMA, MTP/MPO and other fiber optic patch cables. These fiber optic patch cables are available in single mode and multimode versions, with custom length and cable colors. Our fiber patch cables are competitive prices and fast delivery.

Shenzhen Jiafu Optical Communication Co., Ltd Established in 2001. As a reliable fiber optic cables manufacturer, we have served thousands of customers from all over the world. All fiber optic cables from us are high quality and reliably.

Fiber optic patch cables are used to link between the equipment in fiber optic communications, they are actually a piece of fiber optic cable terminated with connectors at each end of the cable. So the fiber patch cables names have much to do with the connectors and the cables. For example, a LC SC single mode duplex 9/125 5 meters Rizer fiber optic patch cable, here the LC and SC are the names of the connectors. Single mode 9/125 is the optical fiber specifications, duplex is the cable structure. Rizer is the fire resistant standard. 5 meters is the cable length. Fiber optic patch cables are also called fiber optic jumpers or fiber optic patch leads, fiber optic patch cords.

Because fiber optic connectors are many types, the fiber patch cables are also many types based on these connectors. There are UPC and APC type fiber optic connectors; they are with different polished ferrules inside the connectors. For each fiber patch cord, all connectors should be either single mode type or multimode type, to use accordingly with the optical fiber type as in the cable. There can be single mode UPC and single mode APC connectors on the same SMF patch cord, but for multimode, there is only UPC type connectors and thus only multimode UPC fiber patch cords. Based on the cable structure, there is simplex fiber patch cable, which only has one strand of optical fiber inside the single jacket. Duplex fiber patch cable can be regarded as two simplex types joint side by side. Multi fiber patch cables have many optical fibers inside the single cable jacket.
