What Is Fiber Pigtail?

 

The fiber pigtail refers to a connector similar to a half jumper used to connect the fiber and the fiber coupler, which includes a jumper connector and a section of optical fiber.

 

What Is Fiber Pigtail

After the optical cable is laid, it must be connected by optical fiber to form a complete optical fiber transmission link. An optical fiber link has multiple connection points, including optical fiber direct connection points, connector terminations, and connector interconnections. Therefore, optical fiber connections also have two forms of connection and termination.

 

Optical fiber termination is the process of connecting an optical fiber connector to an optical fiber and then polishing it. When the optical fiber is terminated, it is required to connect the connector and polish the end of the optical fiber connector to reduce the connection loss. Fiber optic termination is mainly used to make fiber optic jumpers and fiber pigtails.

 

The fiber pigtail refers to a connector similar to a half jumper used to connect an optical fiber and an optical fiber coupler. It includes a jumper connector and a section of optical fiber.

 

It should be noted that fiber pigtail and jumper are not the same concept. Only one end of the fiber pigtail is a movable connector, and both ends of the jumper are movable connectors. There are many kinds of interfaces. Different interfaces require different couplers. The jumper is divided into two. It can also be used as a pigtail.
