The fiber patch cords are fiber optic cables terminated with SMA905 connectors on both ends (FC connectors available upon request). These patch cords connect with ease to our spectrometers, light sources and sampling accessories. They are available in UV, NIR, and MIR grade fused silica optical fibers with various core diameters. Fiber core sizes range from 50mm to 1000mm with a standard length of 1.5 meters, custom lengths available upon request.
For applications in the deep UV region (190nm-325nm), effects of high levels of UV radiation on the transmission of a silica core optical fiber must be considered. Solarization changes depend on the type of fiber used as well as the intensity and spectral output of the UV source. The deep UV enhanced fiber patch cord uses hydrogen loaded high OH- silica to provide the best resistance to solarization.
UV grade fiber patch cords use a low OH- content silica core for a spectral range of 350nm to 2400nm.
Multimode Step Index Fiber
Broad Temperature Range
The FPC series is terminated with standard SMA 905 connectors. SMA style connectors are most commonly used with multimode fibers, especially large core fibers. This connector is characterized by a 1/4-36 UNS-2B thread coupling mechanism and a cylindrical ferrule of 1/8 inch nominal diameter.
