FC APC Fast Connector Model: MBN-FOFC-FC1-APC
MBN-FOFC-FC1-APC FC APC fast connector is a type of fiber optic connector that allows two fibers to be mated and unmated quickly, for instance for testing or for entering premises with an installed cable plant. It is important to realize that these can be used for permanent installations but are not suitable for everyday connections. Fiber optic fast connectors are the most efficient, easy to use and reliable way to join fiber optic cable. They are used to connect two ends of single-mode fibers only.

Fiber Optic Fast Connector Introduction
Fast connector has been adopted by the industry for many years and has become an indispensable part of the optical transmission equipment production line. It has good performance in terms of flexibility and reliability, which makes it suitable for use in high-precision fiber optic transmission systems.
Fiber Optic Fast Connector Component
The fast connector has a regular shape and can be connected to each other in any direction, so that it can connect multiple cables at one time.
Its structure and component are:
- SC shell jacket
- Dust cover
- Fiber Gland
- Fiber optic cold connector body
Fiber Optic Fast Connector Main Types
The current standard for fast connectors is FC/SC (fiber-optic cable/single-mode), which refers to the type of optical fiber used in the connector and not necessarily whether it is single-mode or multi-mode.
A simple SC connector will have only one pair of fibers but can support several modes, such as single-mode, multi-mode, or OM3 (OpticMode 3).
A SC/LC (fiber-optic cable/multi-mode) connector allows you to use both single-mode and multi-mode optics on each end of your cable or link.
