Some insight when it comes to changing a connector supplier…..  let’s discuss a singlemode SC connector for first example:

Starting from the point that the SC is an industrial standard connector, everyone knows that it is standardized on the connection point, meaning that all other area’s like the inner-housing, ferrule size and ferrule shape, housing color, backside and strain relief boot are custom to the manufacturer.


From Our FOC TIPS series, a tip on inner-housing:


Inner-housing:  most of today’s SC connectors are the ‘one-piece’ design which is an assembly of ferrule inner-housing and backside.  Often are the outer-housing, crimp sleeve  and the strain relief boot in bulk package separately provided. The traditional multi-piece design consist of more piece parts, like separate ferrule and spring and offers more flexibility. Customers can select various ferrule diameters as well as different connector backsides to accommodate bare fiber or different cables. Some of these connectors allows the ability for tuning.
