Simplex Fiber Cable

A simplex is a fiber optic patch cord is a type of cable used to connect two devices or elements together within a fiber optic network. It typically consists of two connectors, one at each end of a single fiber optic cable. The connectors are usually either LC (Lucent Connector), SC (Subscriber Connector), or ST (Straight Tip) connectors, depending on the type of network being used.

Fiber optic patch cords are used in fiber optic networks to connect two different elements such as fiber optic transceivers, fiber optic media converters, fiber optic switches, fiber optic routers, and fiber optic test equipment. The patch cord’s two connectors are typically plugged into two different types of fiber optic equipment, allowing them to communicate with each other.

Fiber optic patch cords are made from a single fiber optic cable, typically with a core diameter of either 9/125 or 50/125 microns. The cable is then terminated with the necessary type of connector, depending on the type of network. The cable is then jacketed with either PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or LSZH (low smoke zero halogen) material to protect it from dust, dirt and moisture.

Fiber optic patch cords provide very reliable and secure connections as they are immune to electromagnetic interference and crosstalk, making them ideal for use in high-speed networks. They are also very easy to install and configure, and can be used in any type of fiber optic network. Additionally, they are very cost-effective, making them a great choice for both businesses and consumers.

Overall, fiber optic patch cords are an essential component for any fiber optic network, providing reliable and secure connections and allowing for fast data transmission. They are highly cost-effective, easy to install and configure, and are available in a variety of connector types to suit different types of networks.
