Patch Cords and Pig Tails

Veekay fibre optic patch cords are one of the most commonly used components of the fibre optic
network. These are used wherever device interconnection or fibre drop is required. Patch cords may
be broadly classified as per fibre type / count & connector type / count. Further sub classification
may be on basis of usage (indoor / outdoor / harsh environment certified), cable ( diameter 0.9 / 2.0
/ 3.0 / 4.8 / 8.2 mm), armouring & finally customized cable assemblies

Some common connector types are detailed below:

ARMOURED PATCH CORD

FC connectors are the most commonly used patch cords in fibre optic networks where FC stands for fixed connectors. It is fixed by way of threaded barrel housing.

FEATURES

» Nickle plated brass body
» Compact design
» Available in Singlemode and Multimode type
» Specifically designed for low connection loss
» Highly stable against mechanical or environmental shock
» Extremely low insertion loss and excellent back reflection
» Meets Telocordia/ IEC standards

SC connectors are commonly used patch cords due to good durability and low cost. The push pull design of the connectors is ideal for limited space requirement.

FEATURES

» Plastic moulded rectangular body
» Low cost compact design
» Available in both Singlemode and Multimode type
» Accurate alignment through ceramic ferrule
» Stable against mechanical or environmental shock
» Low insertion loss and excellent back reflection
» Meets Telocordia/ IEC standards

 

ST connector is a quick release bayonet style connector with a long spring loaded ferrule which holds the fibre. ST connectors are cylindrical with twist lock coupling, push-in and twist type. ST patch cords are used in multimode networks.

FEATURES

» Metallic body
» Compact design
» Available in Singlemode and Multimode type
» Accurate alignment through ceramic ferrule
» Low insertion loss and excellent back reflection
» PC and UPC available
» Meets IEC & TIA/ EIA standards

 

LC connectors are a popular small factor patch cord which reduces space and are widely used for dense installation. The LC connector has a push and latch structure for making connections. It has high precision thermoplastic housing and accurate 1.25 mm ceramic ferrule.

FEATURES

» High precision thermoplastic body
» Low cost compact design
» Available in Singlemode and Multimode type
» Accurate alignment through ceramic ferrule
» Best suitable for dense installation
» Low insertion loss and excellent back reflection
» PC, UPC and APC available
» Meets IEC & TIA/ EIA standards

MU connector is a small form factor of SC connector having same pull and push design. MU
connector has a 1.25 mm ferrule. MU Patch cords have high optical performance and are widely
used for dense installation.

FEATURES

» Metallic body
» Compact design
» Available in Singlemode and Multimode type
» Accurate alignment through ceramic ferrule
» Low insertion loss and excellent back reflection
» PC and UPC available
» Meets IEC & TIA/ EIA standards

 

MT-RJ connector features two fibre connection i.e. two optical fibre connections within one MT-RJ
connector. There are male and female type MT-RJ fibre optic patch cords, male type connector has 2
pins on each connector whereas female type has corresponding receptacles.

FEATURES

» Plastic housing and plastic ferrule
» Two fibres with one ferrule
» Compact and light weight design
» Available in Singlemode and Multimode type
» Best suitable for dense installation

 

E2000 connector has a structure similar to that of SC connector but has a smaller footprint with
shutter closing. The spring loaded shutter protects the ferrule from dust and scratches.

FEATURES

» High precision thermoplastic body
» Compact design
» Precision mechanical dimensions
» Zirconia ferrule fully protected with shutter
» Push-pull locking mechanism for easy installation
» Meets European and other international standards

 

Armoured patch cord retain all the features of standard fibre patch cords, but are much stronger. Its
construction includes stainless steel tube or corrugated Aluminum tubing inside, which protects the
optical fibre and provides better security. Although armoured fibre cables are strong, some variants
are actually as flexible as standard fibre optic patch cords and can be bent without damaging the
fibre.
Armoured fibre patch cords can be made of similar outer diameter as the standard fibre patch cords.
They can be with different jacket colors and jacket types such as HDPE /OFNR/ LSZH and others.

FEATURES

» Fully secure from external damages
» Convenient for high security application
» High tensile strength
» Anti rodent
» Available in Singlemode and Multimode type
» Low insertion loss and excellent back reflection
» Available with variety of connectors like FC,SC, ST,LC and others
» PC, UPC and APC available depending on the connector type
» Meets international standards
