A fiber pigtail is a specific hardware connection used for cable termination. On a fiber pigtail, one end of the wire is simply exposed fiber and the other end has a pre-installed connector on it. Fiber pigtails are commonly spliced onto individual strands of a multi-fiber trunk cable.
Pigtails. A fiber pigtail is a single, short, usually tight-buffered, optical fiber that has an optical connector pre-installed on one end and a length of exposed fiber at the other end. The end of the pigtail is stripped and fusion spliced to a single fiber of a multi-fiber trunk.
Fiber optic pigtail is a fiber optic cable terminated with a factory-installed connector on one end, leaving the other end terminated. Hence the connector side can be linked to equipment and the other side melted with optical fiber cables.

OM1 fiber typically comes with an orange jacket and have a core size of 62.5 µm. It can support 10 Gigabit Ethernet at lengths of up to 33 meters. It is most commonly used for 100 Megabit Ethernet applications. This type commonly uses a LED light source.
Bend Insensitive Fiber Optic Cable Structure A unique refractive trench with low refractive index glass layer in BIF, which reduces in light dispersion upon twisting and bending, ensuring network transmission stably and fast.

Quality production Stages For Fiber Optic Pigtail or Fiber Pigtail Assembly
So what should be taken into consideration when choosing a ‘good’ product? What are the features that one should look for that defines the quality of any connector 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 or Fiber Pigtail Assembly, Preparation, Termination and Polishing and a total of 15 steps where negligence at any one of the steps will result in an inferior jumper 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.
preparation of fiber cable
- Stripping of outer cable jacket
- trimming of kevlar fibers to length
- Stripping of 900um buffer
- clean bare fiber
- check fiber for damage
- mix two part epoxy
- degas epoxy
- check ferule id
termination of fiber cable
- inject epoxy and insert fiber
- crimp kevlar to back post
- crimp outer jacket
- cure connector in oven
polishing of connector end face
- cleave fiber
- Remove excess epoxy by hand or machine
- polish end-face by grinding machine
Quality control steps For SC Pigtail Multimode OM1 62.5/125 Orange Fiber Optic Pigtails
Comprehensive performance testing makes sure the cable work more secure and data transmission more reliable and stable in your network.
End-Face Inspection Evidently, fiber end-face defects like scratches, pits, cracks, and particle contamination will have a direct impact on the performance, contributing to poor insertion/return loss. Any irregularity that impedes light transmission from one fiber to the other will negatively affect IL and RL.Inspect the connector end face for scratches, defects and contamination to ensure reliable fiber connections.
2-Insertion Loss Testing
Insertion Loss Testing In telecommunications, insertion loss refers to the loss of signal power, calculated as a ratio in dB (decibel), resulting from inserting a device in a transmission line or optical fiber. It can also be referred to as attenuation, which indicates how much the signal loss is by comparing the input power to the output power. A lower insertion loss value indicates a better insertion loss performance. For example, an insertion loss of 0.3dB is better than 0.5dB.
3-Return Loss Testing
Return Loss Testing When a signal is transmitted through a transmission line, some signal power is always reflected or returned to the source due to discontinuities in the transmission line. The discontinuity can be a mismatch with the terminating load or with a device inserted in the line. Return loss refers to the loss of reflected signal power. Therefore, the higher the return loss is, the lower the amount of reflection will be. That is to say, the fiber connector will have better performance with a higher value of RL.
4-3D Interferometer Testing
3D Interferometer Testing Test connectors or ferrules of cables to ensure that radius of curvature, the apex offset and fiber height can meet and exceed industry standards.
