Ferrule is the most important component of fiber optic connectors and fiber optic patch cord.
It could be made of different materials, such as plastics, stainless steel, and ceramic (zirconia). Most of the ferrules used in optical connectors are made of ceramic (Zirconia) material due to some of the desirable properties it possesses. Ceramic ferrule features for its low insertion loss required for optical transmission, remarkable strength, small elasticity coefficient, easy control of product characteristics, and strong resistance to changes in environmental conditions.
We provide wide variety of high precision single-mode and multimode standard ceramic (Zirconia) ferrules with PC, UPC, APC, conical and step end-face for ST, SC, FC, LC, MU fiber connectors and patch cord, standard ferrule assemblies with standard type SC, ST, MU flange are also available.
Except for standard single-mode and multimode ceramic ferrule for standard ST, FC, SC, LC, MU fiber connector and fiber optic patch cord, T&S Communications also offer custom manufacturing non-standard ceramic ferrule and fiber stub with various lengths and outer diameters.
T&S Communications provides a variety of single-mode and multi-mode non-standard ceramic ferrules with pre domed and pre-angled end-face configurations for fast polishing.
Our highly precision production process is dedicatedly designed for customized ferrule designs. A wide variety of IDs and tolerances are available. Customized lengths, inner and outer diameters are available at T&S.
Fiber Stub is a ceramic (zirconia) capillary assembled with optical fiber. It is the most important component when connecting receptacle Modules such as TOSA and ROSA assemblies. Fiber stubs are fitted into the receptacle modules to achieve a stable connection with the fiber stub and fiber connectors when the two mates in the receptacle.
T&S Communications Fiber Stubs are manufactured with high-quality ceramic ferrules. They usually be polished with PC or APC end-face. Standard diameters are 1.25mm or 2.5 mm, and other sizes may also be available.
T&S Communications provides high quality and reliable fiber stub for TOSA/ROSA Receptacle. We have a proven polishing process using specially designed high precision machines. With an experienced manufacturing process, T&S Communications fiber stub delivers the highest performance and lowest defect rate.
The MT ferrule is a multi-fiber, plastic ferrule with a square end-face of 6.4x2.5 mm and fiber pitch 0.25mm, widely applied in MPO connectors and AOC cables. 12 and 24-fiber MT ferrules are the most commonly used types.
Based on Planar Lightwave Circuit technologies, PLC splitter wafers are produced on the quartz substrate through a series of processes including CVD deposition, photo-masking, etching, etc. PLC splitter wafers can be designed for 1x2, 1x4, 1x8, 1x16, 1x32, 1x64 and 2xN. Splitter chips with high yield, quality and reliability, are made of PLC wafers through dicing and polishing.
Based on Planar Lightwave Circuit technologies, PLC splitter chips can uniformly divide and guide light in the wavelength ranges from 1260nm to 1650nm. With low insertion loss (IL), low Polarization Dependent Loss (PDL) and high reliability, PLC splitter chips have been widely used in FTTx and other optical communication systems.
