  • ST Connectors: Slotted bayonet type Connector with long ferrule. Common connector for mulitmode fibers.
  • FC Connectors: Screw on type connector. Popular with single Mode fibers.
  • SC Connectors: Push/pull connector that can also be used with Duplex fiber constuction.
  • LC Connectors: Much like the ST connector but with a Ferrule that is half the size.
  • MT-RJ Connectors: Connector configured for duplex fibers with both fibers in one ferrule.
  • MU Connectors: Much like the SC Connector but with a ferrule about half the size.
