A pigtail is a short fiber optic cable with a diameter of 900 micron (0.9mm), with a connector at one end only. The fiber inside the connector is protected by one secondary coating (generally white in color) known as a buffer. A pigtail is used to terminate optical fibers inside racks, patch panels, and optical boxes.
- Three types of buffers are available:
1. Tight: this buffer very tightly adheres to the fiber allowing the removal of the buffer by only a few centimeters (max 1cm at a time);
2. Semi-tight: this buffer is not as tightly adhered allowing the removal of the buffer by up to a few centimeters (max 3cm)
3. Loose: this buffer does not adhere to the fiber, and can be removed by up to a meter
- The product is available with any type of connector assembled
- The product is available with any type of single-mode fiber (G.652D, G657A2) and multi-mode (OM2, OM3, OM4)
- 100% of the connectors are tested in our lab through Insertion Loss and Return Loss @ 1310-1550 nm measurements
- Our lab is equipped to undertake optical, mechanical and environmental testing in order to be compliant with international standards (IEC) and to technical specifications required by national operators.
