Commonly used widely in applications such as FTTX, gigabit passive optical network (GPON) and wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM), Connectix OS2 singlemode SC/APC -LC/APC patch leads are manufactured using bend insensitive G.657.A1 or G.675.A2 optical fibre, terminated with standards compliant connectors and 100% tested and certified.
The dual sheathed FTTX patch leads provide a consumer end solution, interconnecting an outdoor connection to an indoor distribution point. Manufactured using an outer UV-resistant black low smoke zero halogen sheath (LSZH) for external use which can then be easily stripped back to reveal an inner LSZH white sheath suitable for a short indoor run. Multiple layers of Kevlar strengthening members help ensure the cable remains robust for FTTX installations.
Available in standard low loss or premium and premium low-loss Senko connector formats the SC/APC and LC/APC connectors are a zirconia ceramic ferrule with choice of endface types including standard, step, and cone. These endface types allow for faster polishing, and lower insertion loss and back reflection when terminated within Connectix and Senko production procedures, while ensuring maximum repeatability.
The connector body is precision moulded and available in SC/APC 900um, 2.0mm or 3.0mm long boot formats and LC/APC mini 900um, mini 2mm/3mm and round 2mm/3mm. The housing and boot are made from UL-rated material and Physical Contact (PC) version is also available.
