This SMOF, duplex patch cord with LC UPC Grade “B” connectors (10m long), has a LSZH sheath as standard. Each fibre cord is Ø2.0mm. The SMOF meets G652D specification, with no water peak in the wavelength profile graph. This ruggedized patch cord can withstand up to 6 full turns (360o) twists over 1m length, without causing any significant increase in attenuation. However, for best performance when using the ruggedized patch cord, full twists are best avoided. A single optical fibre cord has the following features: minimum tensile strength of 100N; an MBR of 30mm; ability to withstand a small crushing load; ability to withstand a small impact load; and ability to pass a standard edge bend test. Also supplied are 4 off, red coloured, SC through adaptors, that are used to indicate the optical fibre is directly spliced through and does not have a connector connection at a patch panel.
