Corning SC Unicam SM UPC - Discontinued

SC Unicam Singlemode Connector - UPC

The UniCam® connector is the ideal solution for all your field-installable multimode and single-mode fiber optic connector requirements. The quick installation reduces the total installed cost of connectorization, making the UniCam connector cost-effective for all fiber applications, from the main cross-connect to the workstation.

The UniCam connector can best be described as a mini pigtail. It incorporates a factory-installed fiber stub that is fully bonded in the ferrule. The other end is precisely cleaved and placed into the patented alignment mechanism of our mechanical splice. Both the field fiber and fiber stub are fully protected from environmental factors. Unlike other no-epoxy, field-installable connectors, the UniCam connector requires no polishing.

The UniCam connector is available for both single-mode and multimode applications. UniCam single-mode connectors are the only pre-polished end-face, field-installable connectors that can ensure reflectance performance.

Features & Benifits:

  • Compliant with ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.3
  • Economical cost for all fiber terminations
  • Fastest termination time in the industry
  • Low labor and no consumables for reduced total cost
  • Minimal tool kit, reduced setup time; universal assembly tool terminates all UniCam connector styles
  • Proven performance
