What is a fiber patch cord? How to protect the fiber jumper can extend the service life?

Posted on 21st Jul 2018 @ 6:29 PM


The fiber jumper refers to the connector plug installed at both ends of the cable. In the fiber communication, the common specifications of the fiber connector are SC, FC, SC, MTRJ, LC and so on. The fiber jumper has a thicker protective layer and is generally used for the connection between the optical transceiver and the terminal. Fiber jumpers are divided into single mode and multimode. The single-mode fiber jumper is generally yellow in appearance, and the multimode fiber jumper is generally orange. The fiber jumper is relatively soft and is mainly used for indoor wiring.

 

The connector of the fiber jumper is relatively fragile. Compared with the ordinary cable jumper, the maintenance of the fiber jumper is more complicated.
First, when using fiber optic patch cords, the fiber optic connectors must be protected with a protective cover to prevent oil and dust from damaging the coupling of the fibers and affecting the transmission speed and distance.
Secondly, if the connector of the fiber jumper is dirty, it will affect the transmission effect, so protect the connector. If it is not dirty, it is best to use alcohol to clean it. Do not use water.
Third, it is necessary to protect the ferrule and the ferrule end face to prevent bumps and pollution, and bring the dust cap in time after disassembly.
Fourth, when the fiber is being routed, try to pull the wire as straight as possible to reduce multiple bends. In case of bending, the radius should not exceed 30MM, otherwise it will damage the fiber core and easily affect the light transmission speed.
Fifth, the fiber is clothed to avoid being trampled and causing damage.
The cost of optical fiber is relatively high, and it has not completely replaced copper cable at present. Copper cable is still the first choice for office wiring, home wiring, residential wiring, and dormitory wiring. Its installation and maintenance costs are relatively low.
When it comes to transmission distance problems, we still have to consider and recommend the use of fiber. Compare the transmission distance limit of copper cables.
