Product ID: Fiber Connector

Inquiry

Fiber Connector (Optical Connector) mate or connect with optical devices, modules, and fibers. It is one of the most essential components for optical communication. Fiber connector is also the key part used in fiber patch cord and fiber Pigtail. 

While there are many different types of fiber connectors, they share similar design characteristics. There are three major components of a fiber connector, the ferrule, the connector body, and the coupling mechanism.

FerruleTwo main Ceramic Ferrule sizes are used for Fiber Connectors. The ferrule OD size φ2.5mm is for ST, FC and SC Fiber Connectors. The ferrule OD size φ1.25 mm is for the MU and LC Fiber Connector Versions. PC or UPC or APC refer to how we polish the ferrule of the Fiber Connectors. Single mode fiber connectors can be with PC, or UPC or APC polish, while Multimode Fiber Connectors only with PC or UPC polish.

Connector body — this is a plastic or metal structure that holds the ferrule and attaches to the jacket and strength members of the fiber cable itself.

 

Coupling mechanism — this is a part of the Fiber Connector body that holds the Fiber Connector in place when it gets attached to another device. It may be a latch clip, a bayonet-style nut, threaded, push-pull and snap-lock or similar device

 

LFO provides an array of Fiber Connector kits and Fiber Adapters for FC, SC, ST, LC, MU, MTRJ, E2000  configurations. We Supply Single-mode, Multi-mode, Angle-polished Fiber Connector assemblies with stable qualities that use high quality Ceramic Ferrules.

Besides Fiber Connector, we also offer Fast Connector (Field Assembly Connector or Field terminated fiber connector, quickly assembly Fiber connector) for field application.

FDDI fiber connector
FDDI Fiber Connector  
The FDDI fiber connector is a duplex connector designed by ANSI and is utilized in FDDI networks. FDDI connector utilizes two 2.5mm diameter ceramic ferrules. It is offered in MM only.


LC fiber connector






LC Fiber Connector
The LC fiber connector is comprised of a polymer body and use a 1.25mm diameter ceramicferrule with either PC or APC end-face, It is offered in MM or SM performances and different boot sizes, including 2.0mm, 0.9mm are available.
 

MU fiber connector
MU Fiber Connector
The MU fiber connector is composed of plastic housing and 1.25 mm diameter zirconia ferrule with either PC end-face. It is offered in MM or SM performances and different boot sizes, including2.0mm, 0.9mm are available.


MTRJ fiber connector




 
MTRJ Fiber Connector
The MTRJ fiber connector comes from the MT connector. It is a duplex connector with both fibers in a single polymer ferrule. The ferrule and the connector housing is designed to achieve physical contact (PC). It uses pins for alignment and has male and female versions. Multimode only. Available cable types include simplex round cable and zip cable.


MPO fiber connector




 
 

MPO Fiber Connector  
The MPO fiber connector use precision molded MT ferrules, together with metal guide pins and precise housing dimensions ensure fiber alignment when mating. Mass termination in combinations of 4, 8, or 12 fiber ribbon cables are available. Singlemode versions (with APC Polishing) are offered with premium low-loss or standard and multimode versions (with PC polishing) are also available. Available cable types include bare fiber ribbon and ruggedized ribbon (PVC Jacketed).
