The SC connector is becoming increasingly popular in single mode fiber optic telecom and analog CATV, field deployed links.
The high precision, ceramic ferrule construction is optimal for aligning single9mode optical fibers.
The connectors’ outer square profile combined with its push pull coupling mechanism,
allow for greater connector packaging density in instruments and patch panel.
The keyed outer body prevents rotational sensitivity and fiber endface damage.
Multimode versions of this connector are also available. The typical insertion loss of the SC connector is around 0.3 dB.
