These 12 x singlemode optical fibre pigtails, 1.5m long with A/SC connectors, is supplied with 0.9mm diameter optical fibre cord.
These 12 x SMOF pigtails, 1.5m long with A/SC connectors, is supplied with 0.9mm diameter optical fibre cord, each a different colour. The cords colours are Telco Industry standard, and range from Blue to Aqua. For optical fibres 1 to 12 the Telco Industry Standard Colour Code is: Blue, Orange, Green, Brown, Slate, White, Red, Black, Yellow, Voilet, Rose and Aqua. The SMOF meets G652D specification, with no water peak in the wavelength profile graph. Each optical fibre cord has the following features: different colours; 9μm core dia; 125μm cladding dia; and a 900μm tight buffered outer sheath. The cord has physical properties of minimal tensile strength; and MBR of 30mm; ability to withstand a small crushing load; and the ability to withstand a small impact load.
This cord in intended for use in subracks or panels, to avoid congestion, where space is at a premium.
Be very careful NOT to subject the 0.9mm dia cord to high values of tension, or it may become damaged, or suffer a failure.
Each connector is individually recognizable e.g. coloured green and has a shroud/boot fitted between the connector and the cord. The included end angle of the A/SC connectors ferrule is 8° when measured between a central vertical line and the end of the connectors ferrule end face. The connector is manufactured to recognized and approved industry standards, and will achieve a 20 year service lifetime, under typical operational conditions.
The connector is fitted with a high quality ceramic e.g. zirconia ferrule. Each connector assembly is capable of a reasonable number (e.g. 500 cycles) of matings/unmatings, and of withstanding normal (not excessive) operational handling forces/loads without suffering any damage or significant increase in optical performance. The complete assembly is capable of reliable operation in Exchanges or Repeaters over the temperature range of -20° to + 70°C and up to high levels of RH.
