The FC connector is a field mountable, pull-proof connector that is fully compatible with all FC connectors adhering to the NTT specification. The FC connector can maximize termination yield through ease of mounting and a high performance polishing procedure.
The three-piece connector design (connector, crimp ring, and boot) is mounted using the same simple process used for other 3M connectors. The FC connector is available in singlemode and multimode utilizing epoxy adhesive. It is also available in singlemode and multimode preloaded with 3Ms hot melt adhesive, enabling a field termination in less than two minutes for multiple terminations. 3Ms composite ferrule connector is pre-radiused and intermateable with ceramic connectors. All 3M FC connectors meet the requirements of TIA/EIA-568B (including composite ferrules). Singlemode epoxy connectors are compliant with Telcordia GR-326-CORE.
