What is Fiber Patch Cables?

Fiber patch cable, known as fiber optic patch cord or fiber jumper cable, is really a fiber optic cable terminated with fiber optic connectors on both ends. It’s two major application areas: computer work station to outlet and fiber optic patch panels or optical cross connect distribution center. Fiber patch cables would be the backbone from the fiber optics industry. They’re strands of optically pure glass as thin as real hair. These cables carry information via mode of transmission of light. Short patch leads usually created using stranded wire are flexible patch cables. The fiber patch cables are used to plug one piece of equipment into another.

>Types

Fiber patch cables are utilized to two nearby components with fiber connectors. Fiber patch cables come with their respective connectors. They can be an ideal and easy replacement of copper cables because they make use of the same RJ45 connector as copper patch cables. Fiber patch cables can be found in simplex, duplex, multimode, single mode with ST-ST, ST-SC, SC-SC connectors. They are of two prominent types – single mode and multimode.

Single mode fiber patch cables are utilized in long-distance high capacity voice applications like telephone transmission or long-distance gigabit networking. These fiber patch cables can use 9/125 micron bulk fiber cables and connectors at both ends.

Multimode fiber patch cables are utilized in computer industry that is standard for data applications like local area network, wide area network, etc. Fiber patch cables in multimode are available in 50/62.5 micron. SC, ST, LC, FC, MT-RJ, E2000 and MU connectors have polished ceramic ferrules for precision and durability. The SC and LC duplex fiber patch cables come designed with a clip to keep polarity.

ST to ST fiber patch cable gives unlimited bandwidth at high speeds over long distances. These fiber patch cables are ideal for connections between fiber patch panels, hubs, switches, fiber media converters and routers, etc. Fiber patch cables provide higher speeds and increased bandwidth, when compared with conventional twisted-pair copper cable. These fiber patch cables are compatible with all standard fiber optic equipment and connectors. Ceramic connectors of those fiber patch cables ensure low signal loss and high reliability along with total immunity to electrical and electromagnetic interference.

>Application

They have various uses in most types of industries. Fiber patch cables are utilized in Medical Imaging, Mechanical Engineering, LAN Applications, CATV Networks, Telephone Lines, etc. Fiber patch cables have revolutionized the total network industry of telephones, cable, internet, audio applications, etc. The fiber patch cables offer accurate signal transfer that is totally distortion free. Thus because of these cables the audio or video transmission is completely distortion free and crystal clear. As these fiber patch cables use light as a mode of transmission there isn’t any hazard of electric interferences or any tampering.
