Patch Cord ST Connector


Manufacturer: SOPTO Patch Cord ST Connector
Type: ST Patch Cord
Data Rete: 10Gigabit
Connector Type: ST
End Face:  UPC/PC/APC or others
Skin Material: PVC/LSZH/OFNR..


The ST* connectors used in our patch cords employ half-twist bayonet locking mechanism and high quality 2.5mm zirconia ferrules. They are fully compatible with existing ST type hardware.


In addition to basic testing, some mechanical and environmental tests per IEC or Telcordia are also performed periodically to guarantee the best quality. For standard patch cords, sampling check is performed on ferrule geometry to ensure high percentage of polished connectors meeting GR-326 requirements. For premium grade, ferrule geometry is tested on all patch cords to meet these GR-326 requirements.


Other than standard single mode and multimode fibers, OM2, and OM3 fibers are also available upon request. Flame retardant grade cable sheathing options are offered. Riser rated cable will be provided as standard. LSZH and Plenum can be provided upon request.
