Armored fiber optic patch cords retain all the features of standard patch cords but are much stronger. Because the armored fiber optic patch cord with built-in a stainless steel tube inside the outer jacket to protect the central units.
The advantages of using armored fiber patch cords
Step 1: Choose the correct connectors for the fiber patch cords. Both endings can come with different types of connectors. There are many connector types available.
Step 2: Choose the polish type of connectors. There are two types of connector polish, UPC and APC.
Step 3: According to the number of fiber strands, Optic fiber patch cords can have two types of strands: simplex or duplex.
Choose which type of strands you will need, Simplex or Duplex?
Step 4: Choose which fiber mode you will need, Single mode or Multi mode?
Single-mode fiber optic patch cable is for long-distance data transmission because a single-mode fiber optic cable is significantly faster than a multimode. Single-mode only carries one beam of light at a time, which allows the laser to operate at 1310-1550 nm wavelength.
Multimode fiber optics for shorter distances applications, like within a building or an A/V application within the local network. The maximum length for a fiber optic cable is about 400 to 550 meters. But multimode cables can carry multiple light sources, making them very efficient for short distances.
Identified by ISO 11801 standard, multimode fiber optic cables can be classified into OM1 fiber, OM2 fiber, OM3 fiber, OM4 fiber and newly released OM5 fiber.

Step 5: Choose the jacket material. A standard fiber patch cord can come in different material jacket.
Step 6: According to your needs, decide the cable length you’ll use. You need to know the distance between your devices and then decide the cable length you’ll use. The most common lengths are 0.5/1/2/3/5/10/15/30/50/100m, the cable length also can be customized.
