Multi-mode fibers patch cord
suitable fibers for different applications can save cost and improve efficiency.
1 Muti-mode fibers (MMF)( 50/125\62.5/125) patch cord
Multi -mode fibers normally use orange or slate jacket, interface and protective cover is black.

OM” stand for optical multi-mode,it stands for different fiber grade standards,which effect bandwidth and maximum distance in transmission.so the suitable fibers for different applications will save cost and improve efficiency. OM3, OM4. OM5 stand for different fiber grade.OM5,OM4 are new trend, which are more better in performance criteria than OM3.
OM3 patch cord, typically comes with a turquoise (aqua) color jacket.its core size is 50 micrometers (µm). OM3 supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet at lengths up to 300 meters. Besides OM3 is able to support 40 Gigabit and 100 Gigabit Ethernet up to 100 meters, however, 10 Gigabit Ethernet is most commonly used. OM3 uses 850nm VCSELs which means vertical cavity surface emitting lasers.
OM3 Patch Cord
OM4 patch cord, typically comes with a magenta color jacket. It is a more advanced and improved version of OM3. It also uses a 50 micrometers (µm) core but it supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet at lengths up to 500 meters and it supports 100 Gigabit Ethernet at lengths up to 150 meters. Just like the OM3, OM4 uses 850nm VCSELs.
LC-LC OM4 Patch Cord
OM5 patch cord, it is new MMF standards by TIA and IEC.Fiber diameter is 50/125μm.OM5 can be used in more higher bandwidth applications.its jacket is water green by TIA 2017
OM5 Patch Cord
Drop cable patch cord,also called FTTH drop patch cord.it can be customized in 3m, 5m, 10m, 20m, 30m,40m 50m, 60m, 80m,100m, 150m,200m,300m,500m,800m.ect

MPO(Multi-fiber Push On),it is the first generation of multi-core connector designed by Japan NTT company.comply with EC-61754-7，YD/T1272.5-2009, EIA/TIA-604-5. 40g and 100g optical modules use MPO interface type optical fiber, and there are multiple multimode fiber cores inside. Each multimode fiber core provides a transmission channel for a laser. In the market, some optical fiber manufacturers landfill 8 optical fiber cores, and some also landfill 12 or 24 optical fiber core.MTP(Multi-fiber termination push-on),it is registered trademark of US conec company for their own MPO connector MTP is a higher performance MPO
8 cores MPO- LC patch cord
Armoured optic patch cords, are mostly used in control room,suitable for harsh environmental.
advantages: no need to use protective sleeve,moisture-proof,fireproof.anti-static and acid and alkali resistant. Saving space and reducing construction cost.
Armoured optic patch cords
PC (Physical Contact)
APC(Angled pressed connector): mainly used in wired TV,terminal is green
UPC(Ultra Physical Contact):UPC is widely used in optic patch code interface by most factories now.
① FC optic fiber connector:mainly be used in ODF(optic distribution frame)
② SC optic fiber connector:connect GBIC optical module.the media switches need such type connectors
③ ST optic fiber connector:10base-F,its connector are mainly ST type
④ LC optic fiber connector:mianly used in SFP module connectors.(routers)
