OPDCS0006 – LC/APC to LC/APC Green Adapter without Flange, Simplex Singlemode Fiber Optic Coupler
LC/APC to LC/APC SX SM Coupler
LC/APC to LC/APC Green Adapter without Flange, Simplex Singlemode 9/125 Female to Female Fiber Optic Coupler
This LC/APC female to LC/APC female Singlemode 9/125 Fiber Optic Hybrid Adapter, is a mating sleeve that is designed for connecting together LC male connectors when we need to connect together fiber optic cables with this type of connectors.
LC/APC To LC/APC Adapter Singlemode Simplex Fiber Optic Coupler Female to Female, 0.2dB insertion loss, high-precision zirconia ceramic sleeve ensure stable optical performance. Fiber optic adapter, sometimes also called coupler, is a small device designed to terminate or link the fiber optic cables or fiber optic connectors between two fiber optic lines. By linking two connectors precisely, fiber optic adapters allow the light sources to be transmitted at most and lower the loss as much as possible. At the same time, fiber optic adapters have the merits of low insertion loss, good interchangeability and reproducibility. it is widely applied in cable television network, LAN & WAN, fiber optic access network and video transmission.
The fiber optic adapter or coupler is designed to mate two ends of the fiber optic cable with high precision. The adapter uses a simple design: the ends of two separate fiber optic cables with fiber optic connectors fit into two slots opposite each other. The slots are designed to precisely align the two ends so that there is minimal to signal loss. It provides a great solution to meet the growing demand for small form factor, high-density fiber optic connectivity.
This LC Simplex Adapter allows you to patch together LC connectors or LC fiber patch cables quickly. The LC coupler is particularly suitable to connect two simplex LCs for a fast, precisely, quality field connection. The LC APC adapters feature zirconia ceramic alignment sleeves which provide precision mating for singlemode applications.
Additional useful information:
Adapters are designed for multimode or singlemode cables. The singlemode adapters offer more precise alignment of the tips of the connectors (ferrules). It is ok to use singlemode adapters to connect multimode cables, but you should not use multimode adapters to connect singlemode cables. This can cause misalignment of the small singlemode fibers and loss of signal strength (attenuation).
When connecting two multimode fibers, you should always make sure they are the same core diameter (50/125 or 62.5/125). A mismatch here will cause attenuation in one direction (where the larger fiber is transmitting light into the smaller fiber).
Fiber optic adapters are typically connecting cables with similar connectors (SC to SC, LC to LC, etc.). Some adapters, called “hybrid”, accept different types of connectors (ST to SC, LC to SC, etc.). When the connectors have differing ferrule sizes (1.25mm to 2.5mm), as found in LC to SC adapters, the adapters are significantly more expensive because of a more complicated design/manufacturing process.
Most adapters are female on both ends, to connect two cables. Some are male-female, which typically plug into a port on a piece of equipment. This then allows the port to accept a different connector than for which it was originally designed. We discourage this use because we find the adapter extending from the equipment is subject to being bumped and breaking. Also, if not properly routed, the weight of the cable and connector hanging from the adapter may cause some misalignment and a degraded signal.
