FC/APC SM 3mm boot Connector Zirconia

FC/APC Singlemode 3mm boot Connector

FC stands for Fixed Connection. It is fixed by way of a threaded barrel housing. FC connectors are typical in test environments and for singlemode applications. FC connectors were designed for use in high-vibration environments. The FC connector is the most popular connector used today. It can be seen in every area of the communications environment, from a telecoms distribution room to a LAN closet the FC has set the standard for optical fiber connectors. FCs are being replaced by SC and LC connectors.

FC connectors offer extremely precise positioning of the fiber r-optic cable with respect to the transmitter's optical source emitter and the receiver's optical detector. FC connectors feature a position locatable notch and a threaded receptacle. FC connectors are generally constructed with a metal housing and are nickel-plated. They have ceramic ferrules and are rated for 500 mating cycles. The insertion loss for matched FC connectors is 0.25 dB.

Knowledgebase: FC Connectors are intended for telecommunications applications, made with a thread coupling for durable connections. The connectors allow non-optical disconnect performance. The ferrule is PC finished to a pre-radius, which guarantees low back reflection. Specifications: Singlemode. Simplex housing type. 3.0 mm boot. 126 mm fiber size. Zirconia/APC ferrule. Typical loss is .25dB.
