ST to FC
ST - A slotted style bayonet type connector. This connector is one of the most popular
FC - A slotted screw-on type connector. This connector is popular in single mode
Single Mode cable is a single stand of glass fiber with a diameter of 8.3 to 10
microns that has one mode of transmission. Single Mode Fiber with a relatively
narrow diameter, through which only one mode will propagate typically 1310 or 1550nm.
Carries higher bandwidth than multimode fiber, but requires a light source with a narrow
spectral width. Synonyms mono-mode optical fiber, single-mode fiber, single-mode optical
waveguide, uni-mode fiber.
Single-mode fiber gives you a higher transmission rate and up to 50 times more distance
than multimode, but it also costs more. Single-mode fiber has a much smaller core than
multimode. The small core and single light-wave virtually eliminate any distortion that
could result from overlapping light pulses, providing the least signal attenuation and
the highest transmission speeds of any fiber cable type.
Single-mode optical fiber is an optical fiber in which only the lowest order bound
mode can propagate at the wavelength of interest typically 1300 to 1320nm.
Core Size: 9/125
- What is Plenum Cable? - A cable that is rated as having adequate fire resistance and low smoke producing characteristics for use in air handling spaces (plenum). It has a covering (jacket) that meets UL specifications for resistance to fire.
