3M Hot Melt Conn. 
3M Hot Melt Conn.
3M Hot Melt Connectors are among the most popular with contractors because of their reliability and ease of use. They come pre-loaded with an adhesive with a very long shelf life, and the termination procedure provides the ability to reheat and reposition the fiber in the termination process. This easy-to-install field mount connector provides reliable performance in indoor and outdoor applications and has no internal splice.

All 3M hot melt connectors can be terminated using the same 3M Hot Melt Termination Kit 6366/6362. 3M LC Connectors also require the 3M LC Hot Melt Expansion Kit 6650-LC which includes a weighted polishing jig to provide a PC centered apex end face.
Adapter Panels 
Adapter Panels
The Standard series Adapter Panels fit Premise Enclosures with 4.687 inch hole-to-hole spacing, the panel footprint used for the rack (RAC), and wall (WAC) mount enclosures, and adapter-style DMAX enclosures. Built of 16-gauge steel, the Standard Series panels are powder-coated for a long lasting, rust-resistant finish. Adapters with PB (phosphor-bronze) alignment sleeves are suitable for average multimode or singlemode use. For ultra-low loss singlemode applications or frequent mating, adapters with zirconia ceramic alignment sleeves will provide exceptional performance. Adapters, pigtail cassettes and MTP loaded cassettes are available in all popular configurations. If you do not see the adapter panel you need, please contact us. Any combination of ports and connectors (LC, SC, ST, FC, and/or MT-RJ) Single-mode (Blue) or Multimode (Beige) can be assembled quickly.

PROVIDENCE CABLE CORPORATION, INC. offers a comprehensive line of fiber optic attenuators that can be used in optical systems where the optical power from a source is too high for the test equipment in use. The fixed optical fiber attenuator introduces an in-line fixed loss that will reduce the source power to an acceptable detection level. Note: Custom attenuated plugs available upon request.

Bulk Fiber Optic Cable 
Category Description: This graded-index 62.5/125 m multimode fiber has a 62.5 m core diameter and a 125 m cladding diameter. The fiber is designed for use at 850 nm and/or 1300 nm and is suitable for use in premises cabling applications, like Local Area Networks (including backbone, riser and horizontal) with video, data and/or voice services using LED, VCSEL and Fabry-Perot laser sources at 850 nm or 1300 nm.

This multimode fiber assures full compatibility with legacy systems, like Fast Ethernet, FDDI, ATM, Fiber Channel and 1Gb/s Ethernet. Because of the nature of the Plasma-activated Chemical Vapor Deposition (PCVD and APVDTM) manufacturing process, this fiber offers the highest bandwidth available in the market. The fiber complies with or exceeds IEC 60793-2-10 type A1b Optical Fiber Specification, TIA/EIA-492AAAA detail specification and Telcordia GR-20-CORE and GR-409-CORE specifications.
Fiber vs. Copper
If you plan to deploy or migrate your network to 10G, don't let those bulky, unshielded twisted pair (UTP) copper cables fool you. Complex to design with and to install, UTP copper cables create more issues than they resolve at 10G and beyond. The real facts are: unshielded copper twisted pair at higher data rates, including 10G, is over complicated, overweight, overheated and over capacity. In the data center in particular, it's time to get over copper and make the move to fiber optics.

Couplers & Adapters 
Couplers & Adapters
Optical Converters connect different kinds of connector types ensuring a low connection loss. Because the ferrule ODs are the same, to connect MU Connectors with LC connectors is relatively easy. However, special techniques are required for connecting the connector in which ferrule ODs are different. There are two kinds of optical converters; one is a Female to Female Type also called a Converting Adapter and the other is a Male to Female Type also called a Plug-In Converter.

Mode Conditioning 
Mode Conditioning
This type of patchcord is needed due to the single-mode launch nature of the -LX or long-wave (1300 nm) transceiver modules used for Gigabit Ethernet. Launching a single-mode laser into the center of a multimode fiber can cause multiple signals to be generated, due to Differential Mode Delay (DMD) effects, which confuse the receiver at the other end of the fiber and severely limit the cable distance lengths for operating Gigabit Ethernet. A mode conditioning patchcord eliminates these multiple signals by allowing the single-mode launch to be offset away from the center of a multimode fiber.

MPO/MTP Solutions 
MPO/MTP Solutions
Multi-fiber assemblies offer users two key benefits depending on connector style. MTP connector trunks offer high-density interconnections in the smallest package available today. Raised floor space in data centers is expensive and often congested. High density pre-terminated trunking solutions offer a practical way to install many fibers in a short time and can be unplugged, recoiled and reused. Compared to discrete jumper cable bundles, these multi-fiber assemblies can be up to 30% smaller in cross-sectional area and weight.

The MTP "Plug and Play" module cassette has been designed to utilize a modular fiber enclosure within a rack mount or wall mount interconnect enclosure. Standard universal modules are compatible with all of our rack mount (RAC) and wall mount (WAC) series enclosures and AT&T compatible enclosures. Each cassette has an MTP adapter on the back of the cassette with your choice of adapters on the front of the module, such as: ST, SC, MT-RJ and LC. By using a ribbon fiber and fan-out assembly, the pre-terminated fiber is fully protected while offering the user more density with less field termination or splicing labor.

Module pre-assemblies are custom cable assemblies built specifically for final assembly into the modular enclosure. The pre-assemblies are normally available with the cassette module. They are also available separately. The MTP multi-fiber high-density interconnects are standard pre-assemblies designed for standard cassette modules. Single-mode and multimode (62.5, 50 and OM3 10gig) are standard glasses used. For a 'total solution' custom products are also available upon request. Please contact us with your MTP "Plug and Play" application.
