Description of breakout fiber optic cable
Breakout fiber optic cable also can be called as distribution fiber optical cable is designed for Indoor uses. There are two types of breakout fiber cables. One is inside with 2.0/3.0mm tight buffered cables. The fiber glass cores of this cable structure commonly can reach 48 cores. The other is inside with 0.9mm tight buffered around with Kevlar yarn as strengthen support.
The cable fiber cores is 4-144 cores. The outer jacket for both type of cable is LSZH or PVC. The tensile strength for former type of fiber cable is much higher. Breakout cable is usually assembled with terminations to be a breakout or fan-out pigtails or path cords.
Bundle pigtail definition
The distribution bundled pigtail fiber, also known as the tail fiber bundle, has a connector at one end and a broken end of the fiber cable at the other end. It is connected to the core of other fiber optic cables by splicing, and is often installed to connect terminal equipment in the ODF frame box, fiber terminal box. The pigtails are divided into multi-mode pigtails and single-mode pigtails. The multimode pigtail is orange with a wavelength of 850 nm and a transmission distance of 500 m for short-distance interconnection. The single-mode pigtail is yellow with two wavelengths, 1310nm and 1550nm, and the transmission distance is 10km and 40km respectively.
Bundle pigtail classification
Divided into end-to-end branch connections for use in distribution bundle pigtails.
According to the joint mode, it is divided into FC, SC, LC, and ST.
The end faces of the joints can be divided into PC, UPC and APC.
According to the specifications of the optical fiber, it can be divided into: 0.9mm outer sheath with a diameter of 0.9mm; 1.6mm outer sheath with a diameter of 1.6mm; 2.0mm outer sheath with a diameter of 2.0mm.
Bundle pigtail specifications and requirements
The specifications of the bundled pigtails for above picture are: wiring bundle cable for indoor use, metal-free components, 12-core and 8-core, G.652D-type optical fiber, low-smoke halogen-free jacket, connector type FC/UPC, The length is 1.8 meters.
