Polarization Maintaining Fiber Optic Patchcords are available with FC/PC or FC/APC terminated connectors. Hybrid terminated connectors enable users to adapt FC/PC or FC/APC patchcords for compatibility with existing fiber assemblies. Typical extinction ratios between 18 – 25dB maintain input polarization orientation. Polarization Maintaining Fiber Optic Patchcords are ideal for applications including beam delivery, telecommunications, fiber optic sensing. Each connector is engraved with the fiber type for easy integration and identification.
