Fiber Optical Connector - Basic Knowledge

Fiber Optical Connector - Basic Knowledge

Fiber optical connector is utilized to join optical fibers where a connect or disconnect capability is required. A fiber optical connector has three major components: the ferrule, the connector body, and the coupling mechanism. Generally made from ceramic, metal, or high quality plastic, the ferrule is a thin structure (often cylindrical) that holds the glass fiber. The connector body is a plastic or metal structure that holds the ferrule and attaches to the jacket and strengthens members of the fiber cable itself. And the coupling mechanism is a part of the connector body that holds the connector in place when it gets attached to another device.

Since the fiber cable transmits pulses of light instead of electrical signals, it is important to choose a good fiber optical connector that aligns microscopic glass fibers perfectly in order to allow for communication. Nowadays, there are many different types of fiber optical connectors in the market. Different kinds of optical fiber cables may need different connectors. And the fiber optical connectors may be loosely classified into standard fiber optical connectors, small form factor fiber optical connectors, and ribbon fiber connectors. These family types of fiber connectors sometimes may overlap with each other.

Standard Fiber Optical Connectors: Generally having a ferrule of 2.5 mm, standard fiber optical connectors are connectors commonly used in the fiber network. They can be both simplex and duplex and available in single mode and multi-mode fibers. ST, FC, SC, FDDI and ESCON are all standard fiber connectors. But they also differ from each other.

In a word, the fiber optical connector is an essential part in fiber optical network. As the popularity of fiber optical network, about 100 fiber optical connectors have been introduced to the market. So you can easily find the most suitable connectors for your special network.
