Master LSH Patchcord

Master LSH Patchcord

We offer an extensive range of pre-terminated cable assemblies that are 100% tested to ensure conformance with your specifications.  These assemblies are used for measuring and manufacturing of fiber optic components and optical network testing.

The Master patchcord is equipped with a Master connector according to the specifications below. The master connector is marked and specified with its Serial Number, which ensures traceability of transmission and geometrical parameters. The second connector is a standard type. For the hybrid patchcord version different types of master and standard connector types are also available.
