What Is FC/UPC Pigtail | Single Mode G657.A2 | 0.9mm?
FC/UPC Pigtail | Single Mode G657.A2 | 0.9mm is optical fiber that has an optical connector pre-installed on one end and a length of exposed fiber at the other end .basically used to splice with the fiber so that they can be connected to the patch panel or equipment. They also present a feasible and reliable solution for easier fiber termination, effectively saving operating time and labor cost.
FC/UPC Pigtail | Single Mode G657.A2 | 0.9mm utilized to terminate fiber optic cables via fusion or mechanical splicing. High-quality pigtail cables, coupled with correct fusion splicing practices offer the best performance possible for fiber optic cable terminations.
Fiber optic pigtails are usually found in fiber optic management equipment like ODF, fiber terminal box and distribution box
FC type connectors have 2.5 mm diameter ferule structure. The abbreviations PC, UPC and APC are definitions expressing the physical differences of the surface geometries of the connectors on the ceramic ferrules. UPC (Ultra Physical Contact) indicates that the ceramic ferule structure on the connector has an extra polished flat structure; APC (Angled Physical Contact) indicates that the ceramic ferrule structure on the connector has an extra polished 8 ° angle structure.
0.9 mm diameter pigtail cables are manufactured with easy-to-strip tubes and ITU-T G657.A2 bend sensitive fibers, then assembled at one end with FC type connector. TIA / EIA-598 color standard is used for 12-color pigtail sets.

Quality production Stages For FC/UPC Pigtail | Single Mode G657.A2 | 0.9mm
So what should be taken into consideration when choosing a ‘good’ FC/UPC Pigtail | Single Mode G657.A2 | 0.9mm? What are the features that one should look for that defines the quality of any connector,pigtail or jumper assembly? In order to appreciate the significance of a standard compliant product, one must first understand the process of actually making an optical connector assembly and the potential problems that could occur at each of the stages.
There are three main processes in the termination of a Fiber Optic Pigtail, Preparation, Termination and Polishing and a total of 15 steps where negligence at any one of the steps will result in an inferior pigtail assembly. Each process consists of small steps, and each step requires strict Quality Control of not only the equipment used, but also how each step is carried out.
