Fiber Optic Patchcord - PigtailShowing 1–1 of 2 results
Fiber optic pigtails are short patchcords with one connector on one end that are spliced to terminate fibers inside equipment or closures. They provide a flexible interface between fiber splices and pre-connectorized patchcords. Proper pigtail performance ensures optimal splice protection and connectivity.
Inside closures or modules, pigtails neatly bridge the gap between spliced fibers and adapter ports. Their connector end plugs into adapters while their bare fiber end gets spliced to fiber cable plants or device ports. Standard lengths of 1-2 meters provide flexibility. durability and precision mating performance are necessities for plug-cycle reliability.
Choosing the right pigtail depends on the enclosure, connector type, and system. Factors like fiber count, transmission wavelengths, and density are considered. Proper splicing and routing provides protection and stable optics. Routine inspection and cleaning of connector ends removes contamination or damage. Fiber optic pigtails enable modular, pre-connectorized links protecting splices while optimizing connector performance.
