Duplex fiber optic cable is a popular option for applications that require simultaneous, bi-directional data transfer. It can be categorized as either half-duplex or full-duplex. Half-duplex implies that data can be transmitted in two directions, but not simultaneously. On the other hand, full-duplex signifies that data transfer is possible in both directions simultaneously.
Duplex Fiber Applications
Unlike simplex fiber optic cables, which have only one fiber, duplex cables consist of two strands of glass or plastic fiber. This allows for bidirectional communication between devices, making it ideal for telecommunications, workstations, Ethernet switches, fiber switches and servers, and backbone ports.
At Bonelinks, we offer a wide range of duplex fiber optic cables for different applications. Our cables are tight-buffered and jacketed with Kevlar strength members, ensuring high durability and resistance to damage.
Duplex fiber optic patch cords are also available, which consist of two simplex cables joined by a strip of jacket material or with clips on each side to combine the two connectors. We offer different connectors, including LC and SC, as well as plenum and riser rated variations to meet your specific needs. This type of cable is commonly used for point-to-point connections in data centers and similar hardware that require duplex communication.
