Fiber Optic Pigtails

Cable types include copper and fiber. Copper cable is a group of insulated conductors enclosed within a common jacket while fiber optic cable refers to one or more optical fibers enclosed within a protective covering and material to provide strength. Cable assembly is a cable that has connectors installed on one or both ends. If connectors are attached to only one end of the cable, it is a pigtail. If its connectors are attached to both ends, it is known as a fiber jumper & fiber patch cable. General use of these cable assemblies includes the interconnection of multimode and single-mode fiber optic cable systems and optical electronic equipment.

FS is the professional supplier of fiber pigtails SC, SC/APC, ST, ST/APC, FC, FC/APC, LC, LC/APC, MT-RJ, MPO, MTP, E2000, E2000/APC, bunch/ribbon/bundle fan out fiber optic pigtails. Fiber optic pigtail is used to splice outside plant cable to the backside of a fiber optic patch panel.

Generally speaking, pigtail fiber optic cable is a fiber end with a connector factory-attached for future splicing into a system. It starts as a manufactured patch cord or jumper with a connector at each end. Then you can cut the jumper in half and have two pigtails ready to splice. Pigtails are available with a variety of connectors, depending on your needs. These products have advantages over field terminations because the connectors are factory-installed and polished to exacting standards. By this way to save time over attaching a connector to the end of an optical fiber, and it typically produces a better connection. They are especially useful in situations where many connectors have to be added to cables in a relatively short time, or in a location where is easier to make a splice than it is to add a connector. On the downside, fiber pigtails require hardware to protect the splice and investment in a fusion or mechanical splicer, in addition to the cost of the connector and hardware itself.

Common connector type of fiber pigtails is SC, LC, FC, ST, MU, MTRJ, etc. ST pigtail connector is with metal outer body and with a long spring located ferrule hold the optical fiber. ST cable can be 9/125 single mode or 50/125 multimode or 62.5/125 multimode. ST fiber pigtails connector ferrule interface can be PC, UPC or APC.

Besides, FS supply various kinds of fan out pigtails, include ribbon, bunch, bundle fan out fiber pigtails. Fanout fiber pigtail is designed for easy connectorization. The break out cables can be 3mm outer diameter or 0.9mm outer diameter, the break out part of the pigtail can be with break out kits or with heat shrinkable tubes, and the cable length can be customized to fit for your special needs.

FS also offer the armored and waterproof fiber optic pigtail, they are produced strictly according to IEC standards, the products feature low insertion loss, high return loss, good interchangeability and repeat push-pull performance, which make them easy to use.
