SC/APC Fast Connector SM(9/125)

APC Connector is a type of fiber connector that minimizes back reflection due to a 5° to 15° angle-polish applied to end faces. Like illustrated in the following picture. Because of the angle, the reflected light does not stay in the fiber core but instead leaks out into the cladding.

Functions and features :

  • Low insertion loss ,high return loss
  • Reliable optical performance
  • Good connection stability
  • Convenient for field installation;
  • Installs fast, Operates easy
  • Low cost.
