What You Need to Know About LC Connector Families?

The LC connector represents the next-generation small form factor (SFF) connector. The LC connector uses an improved version of the familiar, user-friendly RJ-style telephone plug that provides a reassuring, audible click when engaged. The new, one-piece design enhances the connector’s durability and meets side-load requirements of standard 2.5 mm connectors.

Fiber Optic Termination Overview 5

Fiber Optic Termination Overview

Most fiber optic connectors are plugs or so-called male connectors with a protruding ferrule that holds the fibers and aligns two fibers for mating. Choosing a connector type for any installation should consider if the connector is compatible with the systems planned to utilize the fiber optic cable plant, if the termination process is familiar to the installer and if the connector is acceptable to the customer. If the systems are not yet specified, patch cords with different connectors on each end (e.g. LC ST patch cable) may be necessary.
