FAST Connector for 250/900 μm fiber

NPC SC/APC no polish connector for 250 и 900 μm diameter optical cable termination

Application

NPC SC/APC optical connector is designed for fast assembly on single- mode no polish 250 и 900 μm diameter optical cables.

Benefits

NPC 8800-APC/FS connector (white termination point) with flat splice inside connector SC/APC Optical connector, no polish with flat splice inside connector for 250 и 900 μm diameter optical cable provides excellent transmission characteristics in digital lines, which specify usage of SC/APC optical connector types. SC/APC connector with flat splice provides characteristics as flat splice of optical fibers terminals has reflected signal typical value < -55 dB at room temperature.

NPC 8800-APC/AS connector (green termination point) with angle splice inside connector

NPC SC/APC optical connector with angle splice inside connector provides very low reflected signal value: < -60 dB in all operating temperature range.

Technical specifications

NPC SC/APC optical connector consists of terminal with factory polished fiber and built-in mechanical connector in the body. Connector assembly does not require complicated tools. Two modifications of connector are available:

  • With flat splice inside connector;
  • With angle splice inside connector to decrease back reflection up to < -60 dB.

Funnel-shaped termination point is joined to NPC optical connector’s body to make optical fiber’s assembling more convenient. After fiber is terminated with NPC connector, this termination point provides necessary radius for fiber bending and protects it from fracture. NPC connector was tested for FTTX network application and can be used inside buildings and outside as well.
