What are pig tails?
Pig tails are lengths of fibre optic cable which are used for making connections in cable systems. One end of the cable has a factory installed connector, ready to plug it into a device or system. The other end of the cable is left unconnected, ready for use in a variety of ways.
Why are pig tails used?
Pig tails are an easy way to build connections into a system. The alternative is to use the main cable and install a connector to finish the line. But putting connectors onto a cable can be time consuming. In contrast, many installers have splicing equipment which can quickly and easily connect two cables together with a good joint. Since this can be faster, it saves time on an installation job. If there are many connections in the installation, this could result in a significant overall time saving. Also, pig tails allow the option of choosing different connectors if you intend to use the pig tails like a patch cable.
What are the advantages to using pig tails?
The main two advantages are the time saved and the quality of the connection. As noted above, connection pig tails can be a lot faster than putting new connectors on the cable. Additionally, fitting connectors is not always an easy process. By choosing pig tails, you have the advantage that the connector will have been fitted in factory conditions and quality tested. Since the splicing is easier for most installers, the overall quality of the installation should be better.
What types of pig tails are available?
There are a variety of pig tails for you to use. For example, they are available with a variety of connectors, including both male and female connections. They are also available in different types of jacketing. Most pig tails are not jacketed, to allow easy use inside connection boxes, but they are also available with options like armoured jacketing.
Can I use patch cables?
In some instances, patch cables offer advantages over pig tails. For example, if you are planning to put a connector on the other end rather than splicing to a cable, you might be better with a factory manufactured patch cable. At the same time, a longer patch cable can be divided into two to make two pig tails.
