Patch cord SM G657A2 SC/A-SC/A

Connector: SC/APC
Fiber: G657A2

. Description

Fiber Optic Patch Cords are used for Telecom networks and also used for high speed metropolitan and access network. Our single mode patch cords are manufactured using LSZH cables which conform to IEC, EIA TIA and Telecordia standards.

They comprise two tight buffer fibers housed within a common outer jacket in OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, OS1, OS2 multi-mode and single mode variants. Both ends are terminated with a high performance hybrid or single type connector comprising of a SC, ST, FC, LC, MTRJ, E2000 connector in simplex and duplex. These are typically not ruggedized, depending on the application and a spring loaded electrical contact housed within LSHF plastic shell possible, making them suitable for internal use.
