MDC – MDC duplex patchcord

  • The MDC duplex patch cord is typically used to cross-connect patch panels or distribution boxes with the elements of optical networks. The big advantage of the MDC connectors is an easy polarity change, push-pull boot feature and the small-form-factor connector design. New SFP-DD transceivers can be directly connected by these patch cords.
  • We can offer you SM (OS2) and MM (OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, OM5) patch cords as well as bend-insensitive single-mode patch cords with fibre G657.A. Hybrid versions combined with all standard single-fibre connectors are available as well.
  • OFNP cable option available.
