End-Caps

Coastal Connections is the world’s leading supplier of Fiber End-Caps for PM, SM and MM fibers in ferrules and connectors. Fiber End-Caps reduce the power density where laser light enters or exits the fiber resulting in longer life cables. Short wavelength light deposits contaminants onto the core of fibers. By adding a Fiber End-Cap, the power density is reduced eliminating the depositing of contaminants.

 

Features:
• Built in the USA with Quality Components
• ≤1um Fiber core eccentricity on 125um clad fibers
• ≥25dB PER on PM Fibers (Tested at the design wavelength)
• Fiber endfaces can withstand 25,000 Watts/mm2
• Fiber can withstand over 150,000 Watts/mm2
Measurements Available:
• Numerical Aperture
• Beam Ellipticity
• Extinction Ratio
• Polish Quality
• Endface Geometry
• Return Loss
