What are the types of fiber jumpers?

- Sep 07, 2017-

Fiber jumpers are used to jump from the device to the fiber cabling link. There is a thick protective layer, generally used in the optical terminal and the terminal box between the connection, used in optical fiber communication systems, fiber access network, optical fiber data transmission and LAN and other areas.

Fiber jumpers (also known as fiber optic connectors) refers to both ends of the cable are fitted with connector plugs, used to achieve optical path active connection; one end with a plug called pigtail. It is to connect the two ends of the fiber to the output of optical fiber to the maximum amount of optical energy can be coupled to the receiving fiber, and because of its involvement in the optical link on the system caused by the impact of the smallest.

The classification and overview of fiber jumpers are as follows:

Fiber jumpers (also known as fiber optic connectors), that is, access to optical modules, fiber optic connectors, there are many, and can not be interoperable with each other. SFP module access LC fiber connector, and GBIC access is the SC fiber optic connector. The following network engineering several commonly used fiber optic connector for a detailed description:

① SC type fiber jumpers: connect the GBIC optical module connector, its shell is rectangular, fastening is the use of plug pin type, do not need to rotate. (The most used on the router switch)

② FC type fiber jumpers: external reinforcement is the use of metal sets, fastening for the screw buckle. Generally used in the ODF side (the most used on the patch panel)

③ LC-type fiber jumpers: SFP module connected to the connector, which uses a convenient modular jack (RJ) latch mechanism made. (Commonly used by routers)

④ type fiber jumpers: commonly used in fiber optic patch panels, shell was round, fastening way for the screw buckle. (For 10base-F connections, the connector is usually of type ST. Commonly used in fiber patch panels)
