Fiber Optic Connectors are used to connect two runs of fiber optic cable and consist of an adapter assembly along with two plugs. The most popular versions include, push-on Square Connectors (SC), snap-in Lucent Connectors (LC), and twist-on Straight Tip (ST) Connectors. We also supply MIL-SPEC Connectors for harsh, rugged environments including military applications.
Most Fiber Connectors are spring loaded so that the fiber faces are pressed together when the connectors are mated. This eliminates the air gap at the point of connection, resulting in no signal loss. However, there are two negative characteristics of fiber connectors to be considered: attenuation and reflection.
It is of particular importance to minimize these characteristics especially for long distance networking, as they can negatively impact functionality. Furthermore, our fiber connectors are manufactured of superior quality materials, delivering reliability that you can depend on.
Another popular Fiber Connector that Fiber Savvy supplies is the Corning UniCam Fiber Connector. This widely implemented Fiber Connector can be installed in about 45 seconds without consumables and offers best-in-class optical performance as a field-termination solution; additionally, the high-precision ceramic ferrule multimode connectors guarantee a 0.1 dB typical/0.5 dB maximum insertion loss per connector pair for exceptional network productivity.
Our Fiber Connector Choices Include:
SC Fiber Connectors are push-pull connectors and these connectors are the most common choice for fiber to the home (FTTH) applications for datacom and telecom. GBIC modules also require this connector type.
LC Fiber Connectors are a type of push and pull connector similar to the SC connector, only this connector has a locking tab. There is a smaller ferrule employed within this connector, making it popular for high density data applications. The LC connector is considered by some to be the replacement of the SC connector.
ST Fiber Connectors, also known as straight tip connectors, utilize a bayonet style coupling type, enabling a simple twist-on and twist-off installation.
MIL-SPEC Fiber Connectors are used by the U.S. Department of Defense and were originally developed in the 1930s for severe aeronautical and tactical service applications. The army-navy (AN) series set the standard for modern military circular connectors. These connectors and their evolutionary derivatives are often called Military Standard, MIL-STD, or MIL-SPEC Connectors. They are now used in aerospace, industrial, marine, and even automotive commercial applications.
