    Optical Adapter - PC to APC (male/female), FC/SC/LC

    Model ADP-MF
    Price:   US$14.90
    Available Options:

This adapter converts FC/PC to FC/APC, or vice versa. FC/PC and FC/APC connectors are widely used in fiber optical devices, equipment and systems. It is a common problem many people have when they use those two types of connectors: those connectors can not join with each other, because their tips are polished differently.

To connect one device having FC/PC interface with one FC/APC interface, an option is to use a piece of optical patch cord that has FC/PC and FC/APC at its ends. This is an easy solution but sometimes patch cord is not desirable because of its length, and the need to use two extra adapters.

A better solution, is to use the FC/PC to FC/APC adapter. This adapter is small, has low insertion loss, and simplifies the system by providing male-to-female connectivity and removes the need to use two extra adapters.

For example, if you want to connect FC/APC "plug" to a FC/PC "socket", you can then use the FC/PC male to FC/APC female adapter. If you want to connect FC/PC "plug" to a FC/APC "socket", then you should use the FC/APC male to FC/PC female adapter. (Please note the description of "FC/APC male to FC/PC female" means this adapter has a FC/APC plug and a FC/PC socket.)

Now SC and LC type of hybrid PC to APC adapters are also avaiable.
