FC/PC is a type of fiber optic connector that stands for “Ferrule Connector/Physical Contact”. It is a threaded, optical connector that uses a special curved polish on the connector ferrule for very low optical backreflection. This connector is used for both single-mode and multimode fiber optic cables.
The FC/PC connector was designed for use in high-speed digital networks and is most commonly used in metropolitan area networks (MANs) and local area networks (LANs). It is a good choice for connecting optical equipment such as multi-mode laser sources, splitters, couplers, and patch panels. The FC/PC connector is also used in high-density fiber optic networks and in fiber-to-the-home applications.
The FC/PC connector has a unique design with a 2.5mm ceramic ferrule that is slightly curved. This curved surface provides low backreflection, which is important for high-speed, long-distance data transmission. The ferrule is mounted in a metal sleeve which is then mounted into the connector body. The connector is designed for use with a special key for alignment and is designed for use with a threaded mounting system.
The FC/PC connector is a reliable and economical choice for connecting fiber optic cables. It is easy to install and can be used with a variety of cables. It is also resistant to dust, moisture, and other environmental factors. Additionally, the FC/PC connector provides low insertion loss and low backreflection, making it an ideal choice for long-distance, high-speed data transmission.
