The FC Angled Physical Contact (APC) connector combines a curved end face with an 8º angle which virtually eliminates all back reflection even from an unterminated connector.
SENKO’s FC/APC connector is fully compatible with APC hardware, featuring a very high tolerance anti-rotation key for consistent performance. All SENKO FC/APC connectors come with a zirconia ceramic ferrule with choice of endface types including standard, step, and cone. These endface types allow for faster polishing, and low back reflection and optical loss* ,while ensuring maximum repeatability.
SENKO offers an FC/APC tunable connector with four-position tuning for applications requiring precise fiber alignment.
*When terminated using SENKO recommended procedures.
The FC Standard Connector is available for those who prefer to assemble the FC connector from its component parts. Kits are available in inner key and key ring styles, with boots available in a variety of sizes and colors.
SENKO also offers preassembled FC/PC, FC/APC, FC/APC tunable and FC PC Polarization Maintaining (PM) Fiber connectors.
SENKO offers a variety of FC Adapters in Square, Round and Oval mount configurations with a choice of zirconia straight or diagonal split sleeves, or phosphor bronze straight split sleeve.
