Fiber Connectors

The Best Fiber Connectors for a Fiber Connection

Fiber optic connectors are used to connect two runs of fiber optic cable and consist of an adapter assembly and two plugs. The most popular versions include snap-in Lucent Connectors (LC), push-on Square Connectors (SC), 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 the fiber faces are pressed together when the connectors are mated. This eliminates the air gap at the point of connection so there is no signal loss. There are two negative characteristics of fiber connectors to be concerned with: attenuation and reflection.

It is of particular importance to minimize these characteristics especially for long distance networking, as they can negatively impact performance. Our fiber connectors are manufactured of superior quality materials, delivering reliability you can depend on. All primary fiber types are compatible.

Another popular fiber connector Fiber Savvy supplies is the Corning UniCam Fiber Connector. This popular fiber connector can be installed in about 45 seconds without consumables. It offers best-in-class optical performance in a quick, easy field-termination solution. These high-precision ceramic ferrule multimode connectors guarantee a 0.1 dB typical/0.5 dB maximum insertion loss per connector pair for exceptional network performance.

Our Fiber Connector Choices

LC Fiber Connectors are a type of push and pull connector similar to the SC connector, only it has a locking tab. It also has a smaller ferrule, making it popular for high density data applications. The LC connector is considered by some to be the replacement for the SC connector.

SC Fiber Connectors are push-pull connectors and their the most common choice for FTTH (fiber to the home) applications for datacom and telecom. GBIC modules also require this connector type.

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 type "AN" (army-navy) 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.
