Thorlabs' FC/PC patch cables are built with standard 62.5 μm / 125 μm Graded-Index Fiber (GIF625). Graded-index fiber provides significantly less bend loss than traditional multimode fibers.
Each patch cable includes two protective caps that shield the ferrule ends from dust and other hazards. Additional CAPF Plastic Fiber Caps and CAPFM Metal Threaded Fiber Caps for FC/PC-terminated ends are also sold separately.
Compared to bare fiber, the maximum power of these cables is limited due to their connectorization. Depending on the application, we recommend using these cables with a maximum CW power of approximately 300 mW.
If you do not see a stock cable suitable for your application, please see our Custom Patch Cables webpage to request a cable that meets your specific needs.
