3M LC APC to SC UPC 9/125 OS2 Duplex Single-Mode Bend Insensitive Fiber Optic Patch Cable
Bend Insensitive Fibre Cable exhibit much lower optical power loss under bend conditions while remaining compatible with conventional cabling and are made with solid trench assisted optical fiber that is designed to reduce optical loss when the cable is bent. They provide the same high quality, mechanical features and optical performance as our standard patch cords with the added capability of maintaining optical performance when bent or flexed. It can reduces breaks in light dispersion upon twisting, bending ,or pressure for longer lasting bandwith with easy installation.
Bend Insensitive Fibre Cable are available for multimode (OM1,OM2,OM3 and OM4) and singlemode (OS2) networks.Fiberstore can provide Bend Insensitive Fibre Cable for 1-50 meters and custom meter as you need.

Bend Insensitive Fiber Optic Patch Cable are used in applications for which low loss in tight radius routing is important.
When routing cable around corners and in tight spaces is required, for example in FTTH installations in existing buildings
Data Centres where network uptime is critical. For example, OM4 RBS patchcords will continue to provide data service when pinched by a cabinet door, whereas service would be lost with conventional OM4 patchcords
FTTH cabling in POPs, MDU distribution points and subscriber connections
When small radius installation is needed or the cabling may be subjected to occasional small radius events
Bend Insensitive Cable Vs. Standard Cable
Bend-insensitive multimode fiber (BIMMF) is similar to standard multimode fiber except it with an innovative core design that incorporates a graded-index core profile combined with a specially engineered optical trench. This trench enables it to confine the modes that propagate within the fiber core, even in the most challenging bend scenarios. If you bend a conventional fiber too tightly the modes of light can often leak out of the core, resulting in signal degradation. With a well-designed bend-insensitive multimode fiber, the optical trench acts like a barrier to keep the modes of light inside the core even during tight bends.
The trench, or moat as some people call it, surrounds the core in both BI SMF and BI MMF to reflect lost light back into the core. BIMMF is fully compatible with OM2, OM3 and OM4 standards for laser-optimized multimode fibers and is also backward compatible with the installed base of non-laser-optimized 50µm multimode fibers.
Advantages of Bend Insensitive Fiber Cables
1.Fiber Cable installation errors due to steep cable bends (inside patch panels, racks, entrance/ exit points, etc) can be avoided.
2.Patch Cords could benefit greatly due to bend insensitive fiber because the chances of heavily bending patch cords during installation/ maintenance is very high.
3.Higher bandwidth applications can be confidently deployed using bend insensitive fibers as accidental excessive bending of fibers does not cause much of performance degradation.
4.Bend Insensitive fiber cables are very useful for indoor fiber cable installations as they can now be taken around walls, pillars, ceilings, ducts, and other uneven surfaces within the buildings without worrying about excessive fiber bends.
5.Bend Insensitive fiber cables can be spliced using the same methods used for normal cables and their splice performance could be measured using OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometers), just like normal fiber cables.
6.The normal fiber connectors and accessories are compatible to be used with bend insensitive fibers (Mostly).
7.Bend Insensitive fibers also show a great deal of resilience in situations where fibers are fixed to surfaces using clamping, tie-wrapping or stapling.
