FC CONNECTORS

The FC/PC connector is one of the original 2.5mm ferrule technology designs.  Starting out as the FC connector (sometimes known as face contact), the FC/PC connector (PC is sometimes referred to as physical contact) is an improvement of the original design.  The radiused ferrule end face of the FC/PC connector allows the optical fibers to touch, thus eliminating the air gap that usually results with the original FC design.  With the optical fibers in contact the attenuation decreases and the amount of light reflected back (Return Loss) to the source also decreases.  A typical FC connector has a return loss of about -14 dB where an FC/PC connector will have a return loss of -30dB.  Using special polishing techniques an FC/PC connector can be made to have Super PC (-40 dB) or Ultra PC (-50 dB) return loss characteristics.
