How To Install FAST SC Fiber Connector?
So, you’ve bought a FAST SC Fiber Connector. But how do you install it? Well, there are some basic steps to follow. First, you should know the type of fiber you’re using. There are two types of Optic Fast Connectors: single-mode fiber and multi-mode fiber. You can identify a single-mode fiber by its core diameter, which is 9 um, and its cladding diameter, which is 125 um.
The MBN-FOFC-LC1-UPC LC UPC Fiber Optic Fast Connectors are designed for use with 900um and 2,500um cordage. They feature factory-cleaved fiber stubs and proprietary index-matching gel, for immediate low loss termination. A standard SC type quick connector can be assembled with normal fiber preparation tools, such as a cleaver. Unlike other connectors, you don’t need any special tools to connect the two fibers. The fiber can be re-inserted as many as three times, and VFI testing is performed to ensure proper installation.
The Fiber Optic Connector SC APC was invented by the Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Company in the mid-eighties. It uses a push-pull mechanism instead of a latch. Because it’s so simple to install, it is a popular choice for industries that use fiber cables often. ST stands for “straight-tip” or “bayonet” fiber optic connector. These connectors are best used for point-to-point networking.
