1550 nm Reduced Clad Select Cutoff Single-Mode Fiber
Nufern’s 1550B-HP high-performance select cutoff bend insensitive single-mode fiber is optimized for use in small form factor active and passive components requiring tight bend radii. With a bend loss considerably lower than SMF-28™, 1550B-HP is ideal for the video leg in FTTH CWDM and applications such as smaller form factor C and Lband components and low NA planar waveguides.
Geometrical & Mechanical Specifications
Bend Loss: The Bend Loss at 1550 nm per turn at the Long Term Bend Radius is 0.15 dB per turn, by design.
Bend Radius: The Bend Radius at 1550 nm for 0.05 dB per 100 turns is 15 mm, by design.
Coating Requirements: UV Cured, Dual Acrylate
