Fiber optic connectors

Fiber Optic Cable Connectors – Connectors for Cables

Fiber cables are strong and fast for efficient communication and transmission of data. They are unique because they transmit light instead of electrical signals, so the terminations are required to be more accurate. An optic fiber connector aligns microscopic glass fibers perfectly to allow for communication without disruption and has similar design feature. Better connectors lose very little light because…

Understanding Fiber Patch Cord Performance

With each passing day, fiber optics has become increasingly affordable, widely used for high data-rate systems such as FDDI, multimedia, ATM, or any other network that requires the transfer of large, time-consuming data files. As one of the most basic elements consisting of fiber optics in optical networks, fiber patch cord, or fiber optic patch cable and fiber optic jumper,…
