Fiberstore offers various types of fiber connector adapters, which allow the most common types of connectorized fibers to be integrated with SM-threaded, C-Mount-threaded, or unthreaded components. Adapters for patch cables with FC/PC, FC/APC, SMA, ST®/PC, SC/PC, or LC®/PC connectors are available; for Ø2.5 mm ferrules we also offer an externally SM1-threaded (1.035″-40) ferrule adapter. If the threading and connector combination you need is not shown below, please contact tech support. Our complete line of thread adapters can also be used to convert between threadings.
These adapters are commonly employed when building single mode or multimode fiber couplers and collimators or in other free-space coupling applications. They can also be utilized to provide light-tight coupling to our SM05- (0.535″-40) or SM1- (1.035″-40) threaded photodetectors and many of our power meter sensors. Our C-Mount-threaded fiber adapters are useful for connecting patch cables to our C-Mount cameras.
Fiberstore FC/PC and SMA Bulkhead Adapters contain one connector for the projection of light into free space. Their compact size, one-piece construction, and mounting thread make them ideal for OEM or custom aplications. The design aligns the front face of the connector ferrule with the rear surface of bare fiber adapter. This allows the fiber to be placed in near-physical contact with any optics or instruments that are placed after the adapter.
The FCM is a post-mounting adapter for FC- or ST-connectorized fibers, or any other fiber connectorized with a 2.5 mm outer diameter ferrule, such as our lightweight patch cables. This flexure clamp includes an 8-32 (M4) tapped hole for post mounting, and uses a 5/64″ (2 mm) hex to secure the ferrule.
Hybrid fiber optic adapters offer a solution for hybrid applications where the two different kinds of fiber connectors or cable assemblies need to be linked with each other. Most of the hybrid fiber adapters use high precision ceramic sleeves which enable reliable ferrule mating and ensure low insertion loss and return loss during the linking.
These hybrid fiber optic adapters accept SC, FC, MU and LC style fiber optic connectors in various combinations.
These hybrid fiber optic connectors are available in both female to female, and male to female styles. In addition to these fiber optic adapter styles, we offer a wide range of other adapters for those applications that require cable-to-cable connections. Our adapters accommodate many types of connectors including LC, SC, FC, ST, e2000 adaptor, MTRJ styles and more.
Fiberstore fiber adapters are also referred to as fiber optic couplers. They are used to provide a cable to cable fiber connection. FiberXP connector adapters are used to connect the same type fiber optic connectors, while hybrid adapters connect different kinds of fiber optic connectors. FiberXP offers a complete line of adapters for fiber optic connections, including ST, SC, FC, LC, MTRJ style fiber optic adapters for both multimode and single-mode fiber applications. We also offer fiber adapter plates for ST-, SC-, MT-RJ- or LC-type connections.
