Fiber optic fan-out patch cords are designed for patch panels or cable ducts where space-saving is required. The patch panels have either array fusion splicing (between outside plant cables and bare ribbon pigtails) or array interconnections (MPO/MTP fan-out). For cables that run from patch panels to equipment or patch panels to patch panels, the fiber optic fan-out cords with either ribbon cables or distribution cables can save space for cable ducts. Distribution cables are more rugged than ribbon cables.
Most popular connectors, such as SC*1, FC*1, ST*2, LC, E2000*3, MU, DIN, D4, and MPO/MTP*4 are available. A fan-out cord can have MPO/MTP at one end, and fan-out terminated with single fiber connectors at the other end. The fan-out tube has a choice of 900um or 2mm.
