How Many Types of Fiber Optic Patch Cables Available at FiberStore

FiberStore is a leading manufacturer of broad range of fiber optic and copper data communication cabling and connectivity solutions. Our products include fiber optic and copper cabling, fiber optic and copper connectors, fiber optic and copper patch cables, pre-terminated fiber optic and copper cable assemblies, etc. Fiber optic cable and fiber patch cables can be classified to thousands of types as the various in the fiber structures, fiber numbers, connector types (for patch cables only) as well as the application areas. Then, how many fiber patch cables does FiberStore provide? It is hard to give an actually number, because it is too many to calculate. To better interpret this answer, let’s start an overview on FiberStore fiber patch cable types:

It is well known that an optical fiber patch cord is composed of a fiber optic cables with two fiber connectors terminated on each end. It is typically used to in computer work station to outlet and fiber optic patch panels or optical cross connect distribution center. According to common cable structures, functions, and major applications, fiber patch cable can be divided into different types: common fiber patch cables, armored fiber patch cables, fiber optic pigtails, mpo/mtp fiber cables, fiber pigtails, multi-core fiber patch cables, and other special patch cables such as volition fiber patch cables, military grade patch cables, pre-terminated fiber cables, etc.

Common fiber patch cables
Common fiber patch cables refer to patch cables that commonly structured with fiber, out sheath and tight buffer. According the fiber fiber types, common fiber patch cables are generally divided into OM1 multimode, OM2 multimode, 10G OM3 and 10G OM4 types. All of them can terminated with a variety of connector types such as LC, SC, ST, FC, MU and MTRJ.

Armored Fiber Patch Cables
Armored fiber patch cable can be understanded as the armored fiber optic cable terminated with fiber connectors on each end. This patch cable use rugged shell with aluminum armor and kevlar inside the jacket, and it is 10 times stronger than common fiber patch cable. This will help make the armored fiber patch cord resistant of high tension and pressure. We supply armored fiber optic patch cable, including 10G OM4/ OM3, 9/125, 50/125, 62.5/125 fiber types.

Multi Core Fiber Patch Cables
Multi core fiber patch cord are individually reinforced fibers terminated with fiber optic connectors. When the optical fiber is terminated on both ends it is termed as patch cord. The multi core patch cable is widely used for CATV, LANS, Telecom, Video, active device termination, telecommunication networks and Gigabit. Varies connector types are available including SC, SC/APC, FC, FC/APC, LC, ST.

Fiber Optic Pigtails
Pigtail fiber optic cable can be get by cutting the fiber patch cables in the middle, so that the pigtail is an fiber patch cable with fiber connector at only one side to link to the equipment while the other side can be melt with optical cables fibers. FiberStore supply 10G 50/125, 62.5/125, 50/125 multimode optic pigtail with SC, ST, FC, LC MT-RJ, SC/APC, FC/APC, E2000 fiber optic connectors.

MPO MTP Fiber Cables
MPO fiber cables are designed to meet the multi-fiber technology for fiber optic network. . It uses a high-density multi-fiber connector system built around precision molded MT ferrule. FiberStore’s MPO fiber cables are available in UPC and APC and APC finishes, support both multimode and single mode applications, and optional lengths availableExcept for the mentioned types fiber patch cables, FiberStore also offers many other fiber patch cables, which will be introduced in the next article, you can also go to to know the details in advance!
