Optical Fiber Connectors suit premise wiring applications.
May 13, 2004 - Simplex Typc LC Connectors are pre-assembled, with ferrule included, in either singlemode or multimode. They feature 1.25 mm Zirconia ferrules and support 1.6 and 2 mm cable types. Maximum insertion loss is 0.4 dB with minimum return loss of 40 dB in singlemode. Multimode version has maximum insertion loss of 0.3 dB and minimum return loss of 22 dB. Suited for LAN, MAN, and WAN applications, connectors use RJ 45 type latching, which produces audible sound when properly mated.

The New LC Type Optical Fiber Connector from JST is 50% Smaller than the SC Type Connector
JST Corporation, Waukegan, Illinois, announces the addition of the small form factor LC type optical fiber connector to their fiber optic connector line. The LC type is about half the size of the SC type optical fiber connector. Borrowing features from the RJ 45 connector, the LC type optical fiber connector uses
approximately 50 percent less space than the SC type. LC type optical fiber connectors were designed for premise wiring applications.
The LC type optical fiber connector uses an RJ 45 type latching that when properly mated produces an audible sound. Keying prevents rotational misalignment. LC type connectors can be used in LAN, MAN, and WAN applications. Since the LC type optical fiber connector fits into the RJ-45 footprint, updating
equipment from copper to fiber is possible. LC type connectors offer excellent packaging density, exceptional performance and value.
JST offers the Simplex LC type optical fiber connector. It is pre-assembled, with ferrule included, in either singlemode or multimode. They have a maximum insertion loss of 0.4dB with a minimum return loss of 40dB in singlemode. The multimode version has a maximum insertion loss of 0.3dB and a minimum
return loss of 22dB. The connectors feature 1.25mm Zirconia ferrules and support 1.6mm and 2mm cable types. Additionally the LC type connectors meets or exceed Telcordia GR-326-CORE Issue 3. JST also offers Simplex LC type optical fiber adapters with a maximum insertion loss of 0.3dB. The panel mount adapter sleeve is made of Zirconia.
