Fiber optic patch cables are cables found in computer and networking installations. Capped at either end of the cable are connectors that allow it to be connected to a fiber switch, telecommunications devices, or CATV. Fiber optical patch cables are much thicker and durable and connect optical transmitters and receivers, and terminal boxes. This is “interconnected-style cabling”.
Constructed at its core with a coating of high refractive index encapsulated by a coating of low refractive index, surrounded by a protective jacket strengthened by aramid yarns, fiber optic patch cables allow the transferring of optic signals at greater distances without the threat of signal loss. Single-mode fiber optic patch cables are usually yellow with blue connectors and connect over long distances. Multimode fiber cables are usually orange or gray, having a cream or black connector, traveling at shorter distances.
Another type of fiber optic patch cables are called armor fiber optic cables, using flexible stainless steel on the inside of the jacket to protect the fibers inside. These cables are in theory identical to standard patch cables but are much stronger, able to withstand the weight of a human, and are durable enough to survive unwanted rodent attacks on your chords.
Fiber optic patch cables are found in all types of broadcast and audio applications, from commercial and home recording studios, telecommunications, and computer fiber networking, theatrical and stage production, as well as armed defense networks. With all of these intensive applications and the need for consistency and high performance, fiber optic patch cables are at the core of our industrialized makeup, and thread the world together through many different methods.
