F

  • FC
    Ferrule Core Connector

    Although the FC connector was widely used in fiber optic networks until of late, its use is dwindling fast. This connector uses a threaded container and a position locatable notch to achieve exact locating of the SMF in relation to the receiver and the optical source. Once the connector is installed, its position is maintained with total precision. FC connector is pretty common choice for example in Video over Fiber Transmission Equipment.

  • FDDI
    Fiber Distributed Data Interface Connector

    FDDI provides data transmission at 100 Mbps in a dual ring token local area network within a 200-kilometer range. The FDDI connector connects network equipments to a wall plug. The connector contains a 2.5mm ferrule that can mate onto ST and SC connectors by making use of adapters.

L

  • LC
    Lucent Connector

    The Lucent Connector, sometimes referred to as the Little Connector, is a small form factor FOC that uses a 1.25 mm ferrule. There are 3 different types of LC connectors

  • LSH
    E-2000™

    E-2000 is a high performance connector which meets the highest standards by excellence in design and manufacturing processes. Only high quality and high precision materials are used to guarantee connections at the highest level. HUBER+SUHNER E-2000 products meet the international standards IEC 61754-15 and TIA 604-16 and are naturally RoHS/REACH compliant.

M

  • MTP/MPO
    Multi-Fiber Push On

    MPO (Multi-Fiber Push On) cables are capped with MPO connectors at either end. MPO connector is a connector for ribbon cables with at least 8 fibers, which is designed to provide multi-fiber connectivity in one connector to support high bandwidth and high-density cabling system applications. It is compliant with the IEC 61754-7 standard and the U.S. TIA-604-5 Standard. At present, the most common fiber counts are 8, 12, 16, and 24. 32, 48, and 72 fiber counts are also possible in limited applications.

  • MT
    Mechanical Transfer

    The MT connector is a ribbon cable that has 12 fiber connectors. They are used for factory terminated cable assemblies and cabling systems.

  • MR
    Miniature unit

    Much like the SC connector but with a ferrule about half the size.

O

P

R

  • RJ-45
    The Opti-Jack duplex connector

    The Opti-Jack duplex connector resembles the universal RJ-45 connector. The package contains two ST type ferrules and is a rugged plug-and-jack (female / male) connector.

S

  • SC
    Standard Connector

    SC fiber connector was the first connector chosen for the TIA-568 standard and is a snap-in connector that latches with a simple push-pull motion. "SC" stands for "Square Connector" due to the "square-shaped" connector body. It adopts a 2.5mm ferrule, which is twice the size of the previous LC connector. SC fiber connector is ideally suited for datacoms and telecom applications including point to point and passive optical networking. Due to its excellent performance, fiber optic SC connector remains the second most common connector for polarization maintaining applications.

  • ST
    Bayonet Nut Connector

    The ST connector’s keyed bayonet design is similar to that of a BNC (Bayonet Nut Connector or Bayonet Neill-Concelman) connector. The connector is used widely for MMF and SMF FOC and is extremely easy to use. The ST connector is manufactured in two versions – the ST and the ST-II. Both types are keyed and spring loaded, and use a “push-in and twist” mechanism..

W

  • WDM
    Wavelength Division Multiplexing

    In fiber-optic communications, wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) is a technology which multiplexes a number of optical carrier signals onto a single optical fiber by using different wavelengths (i.e., colors) of laser light. [1]This technique enables bidirectional communications over one strand of fiber, as well as multiplication of capacity.[1]
