Singlemode Attenuated Patchcords
The singlemod Attenuated Patchcord is made by splicing a variable length of attenuated fibre to two pigtails. The fusion splices are protected by an heat shrinkable sleeve and a stainless steel cylinder filled with resin
This specification covers the requirement of the Attenuated Patchcord for SM applications.
The SM Attenuated Patchcord is made by splicing a variable length of attenuated fibre to two pigtails. The fusion splices are protected by an heat shrinkable sleeve and a stainless steel cylinder filled with resin, as shown in the following images.
The SM Attenuated Patchcord is supplied with two terminations of any type of simplex connector for 2 mm cable.
The SM Attenuated Patchcord is available in the following versions:
Protection System (see technical drawings):
- · Heat Shrinkable Transparent Tube.
- · Plastic Boots. Colours available: White, Beige, Yellow, Red and Black.
Cables: 2 mm LSZH cable, Yellow, Blue and Orange colour ready on stock.
Nominal Attenuation Values: From 1 to 30 dB step 1 dB.
Length: Minimum 0.5 m.
Length Tolerance: -0/+5 cm - length < 1.00 m -0 cm/+5% - length 1.00 m
Attenuated Fibre Characteristics:
|Operational Wavelength||1310 and 1550 nm|
|Polarisation Dependent Loss (PDL)||< 0.1 dB|
|Power Endurance 100 mW||100 mW|
Typical Attenuation Tolerance:
|Nominal Değer [dB]||Standard Tolerans [dB]|
|11÷20 and 25||± 1.0|
The I.L. value of the patchcord is measured including the I.L. of the connectors at each terminations.
As standard, the attenuated fibre is situated in the middle of the SM Patchcord, other solutions are available on request.
The triple protection of the fusion splices (heat shrinkable sleeve – resin – stainless steel cylinder) guarantee the same mechanical characteristics of equivalent standard patchcord.
|Operating Temperature [°C]||-25||80|
|Storage Temperature [°C]||-40||85
The standard packaging of the SM Attenuated Patchcord is a single transparent plastic bag with cardboard support. The label on the bag has no logo and markings.
The information written on the label of the attenuated patchcord are the following :
- · Fibre Type
- · Attenuation Value
- · Operational Wavelength
- · Serial Number
Custom labels and packaging are available on request.
