Pigtails & Patchcables

Pigtails are short pieces of fibre cable with a connector already mounted on, used to provide fibre cables with a connector.
Patchcables or patchcords are used to connect one optical device to another for signal routing, so to connect a cable termination point with another termination point in a flexible manner.

A frequent application of pigtails and patchcables are patch panels. All these products can be found on the webshop

Pigtails

SC ST LC Pigtail

A fibre pigtail is a single optical fibre that has an optical connector on one end and a length of exposed fibre at the other end. The end without connector is then stripped and spliced to the fibre used to make a connection with the end equipment.

Providing an optical fibre cable with a connector is delicate job, using a pigtail and splicing it to the fibre cable is therefore a more common solution.
An extensive range of optical pigtails is available for all telecom and datacom applications. Below you can already find a short list.

Patch panels

Patchpanel Fibre optical patch panels provide a convenient way to rearrange fibre cable connections and circuits. The function of patch panels is to terminate the fibre optic cable and provide access to the cable's individual fibres for connection. A simple patch panel is a metal frame composed of two parts, the compartment that contains fibre adapters, and the compartment that contains the fibre optic splice trays and excess fibre.
On the outside of the panel, fibre optic cables can be connected and disconnected to arrange the circuits as required.
