Testing/Reference patchcords

Testing/Reference patchcords provide tighter specifications than standard patchcords. They are made with concentric ferrules which result in lower Insertion Loss and narrower standard deviation. The connector surface geometry conforms to Telcordia's GR-326-CORE. Every reference patchcord has a unique serial number tag as well as a detailed interferometer report which includes all measured figures of end-face geometric parameters, insertion loss and return loss.

Features :

  • Geometric property exceeds Telcordia GR326
  • Insertion loss < 0.15dB
  • Return loss > 55dB
  • Comes with DORC quality report
  • Unique serial no. tag on each testing patchcord
  • Available with FC, SC, ST, LC, MU connectors
