Ordering Information
Patchcord part numbers are made up using the table below.The part number always starts with the letters PC to denote that it is a patchcord. This is followed by a letter which signifies the type of termination and then another letter to denote the sheath of the patchcord. The first 2 numbers represents the micron, and the second set of numbers represents the connector The dash is next, followed by a number to denote the length of the patchcord. Note: Patchcords must be ordered in 1 metre increments. Example of a patchcord part number:PCDL06209-1. The above example describes a patchcord 1 metre in length, with LC/FC connectors on both ends. It is an OM1 (62.5um) duplex patchcord with a LSZH sheath.
