Fiber Optic Pigtail

Fiber Optic Pigtail

Fiber Optic Pigtail is a fiber optic cable with a connector that is terminated at the factory and not terminated at the other end.

Functions of Fiber Optic Pigtail

1. Optical fiber pigtails are used for splicing corridor optical cables and user optical cables, so as to realize the connection of optical fibers and facilitate the transfer.

2. Compared with fusion splicing, fiber pigtails provide more flexible wiring methods

3. There are different types of fiber pigtails, which can be used in different applications and meet different equipment needs

Fiber Pigtail vs Fiber Patch Cord: What Is the Difference?

  • 01

    fiber patch cord is that one side of the pigtail is terminated with bare fiber without termination, the other side is terminated with different connectors, and both ends of the fiber patch cord are terminated with different connectors.

  • 02

    Fiber pigtail is spliced with the corridor optical cable or the user optical cable, and the fiber patch cord does not need to be spliced. The fiber patch cord is to realize the connection between the corridor optical cable and the user optical cable.

  • 03

    Pigtails generally use 0.9mm optical cables, while patch cords need better tensile force and protection, generally using 2.0 and above optical cables.
