Fiber patch cord refers to two connectors at both ends of the fiber optic cable, which is used to achieve an optical path connection. According to the fiber transmission medium, they are divided into Single-mode fiber patch cord and Multimode fiber patch cable. Today we are going to learn about single-mode fiber jumper cord.
What is Single-mode Fiber Patch Cord?
Fiber core diameter of single-mode fiber patch cord is especially small, only 8μm~10μm. And there is only one light propagation path. Therefore, the light can only be transmitted along with the shaft core of the optical fiber, thereby avoiding the waste of dispersion and light energy completely. Usually, the color of single mode optical fiber patch cord is yellow, the connection head and the protective sleeve are blue, which is generally used for long-distance transmission and high bandwidth demand network connection.
Single Mode Patch Cord Types
The types of single mode fiber patch cord can be classified according to the fiber optic connectors, core number, cable material, cable diameter, usage environment and so on.
Based on fiber optic connectors:
The connectors of fiber patch cables are available in LC/ SC/ ST/ FC/ MU/ MTRJ/ E2000 and other types. The ends can be collocated with the same connector or can be combined with different connectors, such as LC-LC, LC-SC, LC-ST, SC-ST, SC-SC, ST-ST, etc.
Based on the polishing type :
It is divided into APC, UPC and PC
APC: Greenhead, inserting end is oblique, the angle range is 30 degrees, and the top has oblique 8°±1°
UPC/PC: Bluehead, inserting end face is flat

Based On fiber capacity :
There are Simplex , Duplex ,Bundle, Ribbon single mode fiber optic patch cord
St Simplex Single mode fiber optic patch cord :
St Duplex Single-mode fiber jumper :
Based on cable material and diameter
The cable diameter of single mode fiber optic patch cord are 0.9mm, 2.0mm , 3.0mm. According to cable outer sheath material, it can be divided into ordinary type, ordinary flame retardant type(PVC), low smoke halogen free type (LZSH), low smoke halogen free flame retardant type, etc.
Based on the usage environment:
It can be divided into the outdoor single-mode fiber optic patch cord, indoor single mode fiber patch cord, amored single mode fiber optic patch cord, waterproof single mode fiber optic jumper and so on.
Our single mode fiber optic patch cord uses a unique grinding process, which ensures excellent optical performance and good stability of the product, and ensures long-term safety and reliability of the product.
