SC/LC/FC/ST/MU/D4/DIN Fiber Optic Connector

SC Connector LC Connector FFC Connector ST Connector

MU Connector DIN Connector D4 Connector

The fiber optic connector is one of the most basic components in optical fiber communications system. The earliest few types including FC connector, SC connector and MU connector were developed by NTT in Japan and the Germany designed DIN 47256 type. In order to reduce footprint, Bell Labs developed the LC fiber connector with a small volume to save space. With rapid advances in fiber optic technology over the past decades, these fiber optic connectors have gained widespread popularity in the world.

Our company has started working with the National Research Institute of Posts and Telecommunications since 1998. Headed for commercialization of optical fiber technology, we have made the first SC fiber optic connector in China. Later, LC and FC optical connectors were created to meet the increasing market demands. Products from our company are built to IEC standard and industrial standard GR-326.

We also employ a third-party specialist to inspect and verify the quality of our components to be used in the production of our fiber optic connectors. Assessments show that our raw material is compliant with related Chinese standard and ROHS standard.

Ever since the foundation of marketing center and R&D center in Shenzhen in 2005, our fiber optic connectors have sold pretty well in foreign countries, such as America, Germany, Korea, and Japan. Thus far, we have drawn a lot of praise from these international customers.

Of course our optic fiber connector can be specially made to meet customer specific requirements.
