Fiber Optic Armored Patch Cord & Pigtail


The armoured fibre optic patch Cords are designed for being used in harsh environment, in which the traditional standard fibre optic patch lead can not perform structurally to the requirement.

The armoured fibre optic patch leads is made with special strong connectors and armoured fiber optic leads, it can protect the cable from damage caused by twist, pressure or rodent bite.



  • Strong safeguard of optical fibers due to use of stainless steel material.
  • High tensile strength, pressure resistant, retwist resistance, rodent protected.
  • Easy handling similar to electrical cable and easy installation.
  • Available with all types of connectors and fibers
  • 100% factory terminated and tested


  • Datacentre and Colocation
  • Passive Optical Network PON
  • FTTX
  • ATM, SONET and WDM
  • Military applications

Product Details

Armoured patch cords are the ultimate choice for demanding environments where high tensile strength, crush resistance, rodent protection, and resistance to foot traffic are essential.

These durable cables can be directly laid in harsh outdoor conditions without the need for protective conduit, offering exceptional versatility in deployment.

Key Features of Armoured Patch Cords

  • High Tensile Strength: Engineered to withstand significant pulling forces, ensuring integrity during installation and operation.
  • Crush Resistance: The robust construction offers superior protection against pressure and crushing forces.
  • Rodent Proof: Designed to deter rodents, armoured patch cords prevent costly cable damage caused by gnawing.
  • Space-Saving: Their flexibility in bending and small diameter allow for a minimalistic approach to cabling, optimizing space usage.
  • Ease of Installation: The simplicity of laying these cables without additional protective tubing cuts down on labor time and reduces installation costs.
  • Flexible Yet Sturdy: Despite their tough exterior, armoured patch cords maintain the flexibility of standard fiber optic jumpers, bending without breaking.

Types of Armoured Patch Cords

Armoured patch cords come in two primary varieties based on the armor material:

  • Interlocked Armour: Consists of aluminum armor that spirals around the cable. Commonly used both indoors and outdoors, it offers durability and excellent crush resistance.
  • Corrugated Armour: Features a longitudinally corrugated steel tape that is wrapped around the cable. It is typically outdoors use to defend against mechanical stresses and damage from rodents.

In addition, these cords come with various connector types including SC, ST, FC, LC, and MU, catering to diverse network requirements.

Applications of Armoured Patch Cords

Armoured patch cords are suitable for a variety of challenging situations:

  • Building Wiring: Ideal for routing between floors and within walls of buildings.
  • Data Centers: Provide flexible interconnections for active and passive optical equipment and cross-connects.
  • Field Operations: Perfect for temporary setups in outdoor situations or sensing applications.
  • Fiber to the Home (FTTH): Ensure a secure and protected main network line for residential communities.
  • Industrial Environments: The stainless steel sheathing ensures the well-protected of fiber from crushing forces and rodent penetration.

Armoured patch cords are the go-to solution for installations where the cable must endure physical hazards while maintaining the high-performance standards of optical fiber. With their robust construction and versatile applications, armoured patch cords ensure your network remains uninterrupted and efficient under the toughest conditions.
