12 Color Pigtail
When the outdoor access section of the network is connected to the indoor fiber optic cable to match the connection of gateway equipment with various fiber optic connector ports, due to the high environmental requirements for the installation of fiber optic connectors in the indoor access section, the process is more complex and time-consuming and labor-intensive. For this reason, one end is pre-terminated fiber optic connectors, the other end left free fiber optic cable is designed and manufactured for the access section of the fiber optic cable fusion coupling, so as to achieve the transmission of optical signal network data.
The 12-color pigtail generally refers to a certain length of 12-core fiber optic cable cut out according to the use of demand, and then the 12 different color cladding cores at one end of the cable to extract pre-terminated ST, LC, SC, FC and other fiber optic connectors, leaving the other end empty for fusion coupling of the fiber optic harness. The 12-color pigtail is often used in fiber optic patch panels, distribution boxes and outdoor distribution hub fusion trays with 12/24 fiber ports. When the pigtail connector is installed in the communication equipment, the other end of the cable is spliced to the access cable, and then a black PE heat shrink tube is usually fused to the fusion joint to protect the fragile fusion from excessive bending of the internal fiber.
