The “Ideal” Fiber Height for a Fiber Optic Connector - and How to Achieve It

Fiber height is a critical geometry parameter (along with Radius, Angle/Apex, and Key Error), which directly impacts the optical performance of the connector in the fiber optic network. Quality-minded cable assembly manufacturers know that ensuring an appropriate fiber height provides compliance with the design intent of their fiber optic connectors.
