Optical fiber pigtails are recommended for sometimes required when there is a need to make a transition from thin buffered fibers (250-900 um), typical for distribution cables and not suitable for direct optical fiber connector termination, to cross-connection or equipment connection points. Pigtail fiber optic cable mechanically for fusion connected to the distribution cable fibers simplify cabling system installation and servicing significantly.
FiberStore pigtails are manufactured to meet TIA, IEC and Telcordia standard requirements. FiberStore pigtails based on 900-um buffered white cable are available in multimode 62.5 um OM1 and 50um OM2, OMC3, OM4 and singlemode, simples and multistrand, ST, SC, FC and LC versions.
Single-mode and multimode fiber optic pigtails shall be available in 3-meter lengths, made of OFNR fiber optic cable, and be compliant with TIA-568-C.3 Single-mode pigtails shall come in ST, SC, and LC connector styles, and offer UPC and APC polish types. Insertion loss shall average.3dB, but not exceed .5dB at 1310 nm and 1550 mm per mated pair. Multimode pigtails shall come in ST, SC, and LC connector styles, and offer 50 um (10G, 300 m) lazer optimized, 62.2 um core styles. Insertion loss shall average . 3dB, but not exceed .5dB at 1300 nm per mated pair.
Fiber optic patch cords include duplex LC, SC, ST, and duplex MT-RJ connectors on both ends. Fiber optic pigtails include simples LC, SC and ST on one end and open (unterminated) on the other end. Patch cords and pigtails meet requirements of TIA/EIA-568-C.3. 1. The fiber connectors are FOCIS compliant or compatible and meet the requirements of TIA/EIA-455-21A.
FiberStore fiber optic patch cords and pigtails support high speed data applications over installations that include entrance facilities, carrier equipment, telecommunications, patch field and CATV. The APC patch cords pass all TIA/EIA-5868-B.3 and ISO/IEC 11801 OS1 performance requirements and offer optimum performance compared to standard single-mode patch cords. The APC connectors provide a lower insertion loss and a higher return loss than standard UTP singlemode connectors. The pigtail fiber optic cable include LC, SC, MTRJ, ST pigtail and more in standard meter lengths.
