Things to know about patch cables with singlemode fibre

Application of patch cables with singlemode fibre

Patch cables with singlemode fibres belong to the fiber optic components and are mainly used for longer transmission distances in the world of fiber optic technology. Unlike multimode fibers, only one mode is capable of propagation.
The active component determines the selection for using the singlemode fiber in the patch cable.

How to differntiate patch cables wih multimode fibres and singlemode fibres

As previously mentioned, the main difference of fiber optic patch cables singlemode, compared to multimode cables, is the connection to the active component and the propagation capability of a single mode. This results in the following properties for the cable:
• Suitable for bridging larger distances
• Smaller core diameter
• Same transmission properties of the fiber class, but differentiation of minimum bending radii
When selecting the right patch cable for your active component, it is especially important to pay attention to the correct connectors and connector types. The use case between simplex and duplex should also be clarified in advance.
Typical connectors are:
• ST: straight tip
• SC: subscriber connector
• LC: lucent connector
• LSH: standardized singlemode connector
A distinction is also made between the polishing of the connectors:
• PC: physical contact
• APC: angled physical contact
