Riser and Plenum Patch Cords with Preinstalled Connectors

Our fiber optic patch cords are factory terminated, inspected and tested to meet industry standards. They are available in either riser or plenum flame rating, and have a 2.0mm or 3.0mm thick color-coded jacket.

Standard patch cords are available in simple or duplex style, have matching connectors at each end and are available in 1, 2, 3, 5, and 10 meter lengths. They feature low connector insertion loss to ensure proper operation upon installation. Duplex cable is conveniently labeled with an A or B to identify the connector at each end.

Specialty and custom patch cords are also available with different connectors at each end, or connectorless when used to terminate bulk fiber cables via mechanical or fusion splicing.

RLH patch cords are commonly used in communications, data centers and industrial control environments, and are ideal for reliable and rapid interconnection of any fiber optic based equipment.
