3M No Polish LC Connector provides fast on-site installation of 250 μm and 900 μm terminations utilizing a one-piece, pre-assembled design.
The LC compatible connector consists of a factory-polished fiber/ferrule assembly and a mechanical splice that is installed with a simple and reliable field tool, which is included in every box of 60 connectors. The streamlined boot is attached to the connector body, minimizing the chance of losing or forgetting to install it during the termination process. After the installation, the boot keeps the fiber from kinking, even during side pull.
On the 3M™ No Polish LC Connector Assembly Tool 8835-AT, the connector receptacle is hinged allowing for easy insertion and removal of the LC NPC. The connector may be inserted with or without the dust cap in place.
The LC NPC is tested for FTTP and Premises applications for indoor and outdoor locations and is available in SM, 62.5 μm, 50 μm and also 50 μm LOMMF (laser optimized multimode fiber) for 10 Gb applications. The No Polish Connector meets EIA/TIA 568-B.3 and IEC requirements and is RoHS compliant.
