Telegärtner FO connectors are equipped with high quality ferrules and split sleeves which are essential for precision and endurance; termination to cables or fibers may be carried out using common tools and accessories. The preformed convex front end of the connector ferrule provides extremely short polishing duration and exceptional optical performance. All FO connectors comply with the current international standards.
For applications with POF (Plastic Optical Fiber) and PCF (Polymer Cladded Fiber) fibers ST and SC connectors with metal ferrules are available providing extremely quick assembly using simple accessories without adhesive.
The current requirements to achieve in FO applications the same port density as with RJ45 connectors have led to newly developed FO connector systems named SFF (= Small Form Factor). Telegärtner offers the connector type LC within this system. The space requirements in panels or outlets are only half of those required by common connector types such as ST or SC.
Telegärtner offers a complete range of components within this system: FO connectors, adaptors, patch cables, adaptor cables, outlets with guaranteed bending radii and suitable for standard switching programs, patch panels with and without telescope operation as well as wall boxes in differerent sizes.
The APC connectors (Angled Physical Contact) with 8° angled polished ferrule end face have been developed for transmission lines with particular high return loss requirements for better than 60 dB.
