Thorlabs' multimode (MM) fiber optic patch cables consist of step-index multimode fiber and have FC/PC connectors with ceramic ferrules on both ends. They are available from stock in 1 m, 2 m, and 5 m lengths.
Compared to unterminated fiber, the maximum power of these cables is limited due to their connectorization. Depending on the application, we recommend using these cables with a maximum CW power of approximately 300 mW.
Each patch cable includes two protective caps that shield the ferrule ends from dust and other hazards. Additional CAPF Plastic Fiber Caps and CAPFM Metal Threaded Fiber Caps for FC/PC-terminated ends are also sold separately.
If you do not see a stock cable suitable for your application, please see our Custom Patch Cables webpage to request a cable that meets your specific needs.
