This SMOF, patch cord with LC UPC Grade A* connectors, of 2.0m length, is supplied with Ø2.0mm duplex optical fibre cord. The SMOF meets G652D specification, with no water peak in the wavelength profile graph. A duplex (figure “8”) cord comprises two single fibre cords, joined side by side. The duplex cord is easily separated into single cords if required. This cord can withstand 10 full turns (360°) twists over a 1m length, without causing any significant increase in attenuation. However, for best performance when using the duplex cord, full twists are best avoided. Each single optical fibre cord has the following features coloured yellow; 9μm core dia; 125μm cladding dia; and a 900μm tight buffered jacket. The core has an aramid yarn (e.g. Kevlar) strength member, provided under an LSZH sheath. The cord has physical properties of minimum tensile strength of 100N; an MBR of 25mm; ability to withstand a small crushing load; and the ability to withstand a small impact load. The cord also passes a standard edge bend test.
* Grade A connectors have not yet been ratified by the standard bodies.
** Max. Input Power can only be applied, if connector end faces are absolutely clean.
