With the trend of high-density and compact datacenter cabling, LC assemblies are gaining popularity with its low interface loss specification and its small footprint. In addition, applications such as cable television (CATV), fiber-to-the-home (FTTX) and dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) etc. are gradually using LC to replace the old version SC. In addition to the commonly used LC assemblies, there are many products which are designed with LC connectors and adapters to satisfy the requirement of all kinds of applications. Fiberstore offers LC product family which is a comprehensive solution to guarantee high quality and high transmission performance for your high-density fiber optic network.
LC Connector, short for Lucent Connector (sometimes called “Little Connector” according to its small size) , was developed to meet the growing demand for small form factor, high-density fiber optic connectivity with simplex, duplex, single-mode and multi-mode options. LC Connectors reduce space requirements by 50% with its narrow footprint and push/pull snap-lock design. Fiberstore offers LC connectors with UPC or APC polishing type. They are available in industry standard beige (multi-mode), blue (single-mode) and green (APC Polish) colors, and will accommodate 900μm buffered fiber (BTW connector), 1.60mm, 2.00mm or 3.00mm jacketed cable (Jumper connectors). Additionally, 45°and 90°boot options are available for 1.6 mm and 2.00mm jacketed cable. In addition to simplex version, duplex version is available with duplex clip.
If you want to have a simple and fast field termination with LC connectors, Fiberstore’s LC fast/quick connector may be an ideal choice. Compared with the commonly used connectors, the heart of the fast connector is a pre-polished ferrule and a mechanical splice inside the connector body. Once the fiber is in place, the wedge clip is removed and discarded. Installation takes just minutes and is easier enough.
For application in harsh outdoor environments under severe conditions, we offer specialized connector which meet the highest quality and robustness standards. In addition, our outdoor LC connectors offer reliability and flexibility for outdoor applications including data and telecommunications in mobile radio, process, utility and traffic automation field.
LC Adapters are used to terminate two LC patch cords or connectors. Fiberstore adopts high quality raw materials to make the fiber optic adapters strictly according to international standard which are fully compatible with the products from other manufacturer’s in the market. Our LC adapters are available in simplex, duplex and quad designs for multi-mode, single-mode and 10G multi-mode applications with plug-in, bare fiber and hybrid styles.
LC Fiber Optic Patch Cables are the most commonly used assemblies in today’s fiber optic connectivity. The primary use of LC Fiber Optic Patch Cables is to link ports on cross-connect modules, or to link interconnect modules and optical equipment. Fiberstore offers a wide range options of LC fiber optic patch cords which are with superior performance for a variety of applications. From jacket materials, cable types, fiber counts, cable diameter, cable length and color as well as connector polish types, you could custom all of these specification according to your requirement.
LC Pigtails are single-ended interconnect cables primarily spliced to outside plant cables entering a head-end or customer premises. The pigtail interconnect cable provides connection to a wide variety of termination equipment. Just like the LC fiber optic patch cords, you could custom your own LC pigtails in our various of option.
LC Loopback Cables can provide a simple and effective means of testing the capabilities of your optical networking equipment. Our Loopback plugs are precision terminated and featured extremely low loss characteristics for transparent operation in the test environment and in form of cable and module types. Single-mode and Multi-mode fiber as well as 10G OM3/OM4 Multi-mode Loopback cables are available with high-quality and low-loss LC connectors terminated.
In order to satisfy the 40G Ethernet, Fibre Channel and PCIe applications, Fiberstore offer 40GBASE QSFP+ to LC Connectors (8) breakout AOC which is a type of Direct Attach Cables (DACs) connected QSFP+ and LC connectors on the ends. With high performance, low power consumption, long reach interconnect features, it is an ideal solution for 40G applications.
In fiber termination and cable installation, some harewares, such as fiber optic adapter panels, ODF (optical distribution frame), FTB (fiber optic termination), fiber optic splice closure and outlets as well as some consumables (e.g. cable ties, wire looms, cable markers etc.) are needed for better cable management. For LC cable management, Fiberstore offers LC adapter panel, ODF, FTB and wall plate outlets with LC adapters which meet applicable quality standards including International, UL, Military, ISO, and Aerospace. In addition, we offer OEM service for these products to best meet your needs.
In WDM system, Mux/DeMux (Multiplexer/Demultiplexer) and OADM (Optical Add-Drop Multiplexer) are used to support the operation of WDM. Mux/DeMux modules deliver protocol and topology independent operation with the highest flexibility in number and type of wavelengths selection. OADM is used for multiplexing and routing different channels of fiber into or out of a single fiber. Fiberstore offer a very cost-effective solution of CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) & DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) Mux/DeMux and OADM with a variety configuration and package options. All the CWDM and DWDM modules are available with three types of packaging: ABS Pigtailed Box, Rack Chassis and LGX Cassette.
Fiber optic splitter is the basic component of PON systems. There are two kinds of splitters including FBT (Fused Biconical Taper) Splitters and PLC (Planar Lightwave Circuit) Splitters. Both of them are available in Fiberstore with different configuration options. Terminated with LC connectors or LC adapters installed in rack mount modules, they can greatly satisfy the requirements of PON system with LC.
LC Attenuator is a kind of optical attenuators which is used in optical communications to reduce optical fiber power of LC patch cords at a certain level. Attenuator is one of the most commonly used components in PON systems. Fiberstore provides LC Attenuators with fixed or variable types, available with APC or UPC polish. Fixed attenuators can be designed with different attenuation levels from 1 dB to 30 dB (step by 1 dB), while the variable optical attenuators (generally used as in-line attenuators) can be with a range of 0-60 dB.
Fiberstore Tools and Consumable Kits for LC connectors contain all the essential tools and the consumable kits for field termination of LC connectors. It’s convenient, cost-effective and Single-Mode or Multimode compatible. Tools including cleaning, polishing, and inspection related products, as well as tool kits are cost-effective and help you to do LC termination efficiently. Consumables, such as connector & adapter dust caps, ferrules and sleeves can all be found in our one-stop shop.
As mentioned in the beginning, LC connectors are gaining popularity due to its advantages. And as the market continues to mature, the cost of LC is becoming lower and lower. Thus, users more prefer to use LC instead of SC. Fiberstore’s LC product family solution can help you save more money and time in the whole project. If you have demands on LC assemblies, Fiberstore may be an ideal choice for you. Contact us over firstname.lastname@example.org to get more detailed information.
