Fibre Optic Connectors

The ST connector The ST® connector, which uses a bayonet locking system, is the most common connector.
The SC connector The SC connector features a moulded body and a push- pull locking system.
The FDDI connector The FDDI connector comes with a 2.5-mm free-floating ferrule and a fixed shroud to minimise light loss.
The MT-RJ connector The MT-RJ connector, a small-form RJ-style connector, features a moulded body and uses cleave-and-leave splicing.
The LC connector The LC connector, a small-form factor connector, features a ceramic ferrule and looks like a mini SC connector.
The VF-45 connector The VF-45™ connector is another small-form factor connector. It uses a unique “V-groove“ design.
The FC connector The FC connector is a threaded body connector. Secure it by screwing the connector body to the mating threads. Used in high-vibration environments.
The MTO/MTP connector The MTO/MTP connector is a fibre connector that uses high-fibre-count ribbon cable. It’s used in high-density fibre applications.
The MU connector The MU connector resembles the larger SC connector. It uses a simple push-pull latching connection and is well suited for high-density applications.
