What Is SC/APC-LC/UPC | 8 Fibers Fanout | Single Mode G657.A2 | 3.0/1.8mm?
SC/APC–LC/UPC | 8 Fibers Fanout | Single Mode G657.A2 | 3.0/1.8mm Fiber optic fan-outs are designed for patch panels or cable ducts where space-saving is required. For cables that run from patch panels to equipment or patch panels to patch panels,the fan-out cords with either ribbon cables or distribution cables can save space for cable ducts.Distribution cables are more rugged than ribbon cables.
While SC (Square Connector) type connectors have 2.5 mm diameter ferule structure; LC (Lucent Connector) type connectors have 1.25 mm diameter ferule structure. The abbreviations PC, UPC and APC are definitions expressing the physical differences of the surface geometries of the connectors on the ceramic ferrules. UPC (Ultra Physical Contact) indicates that the ceramic ferule structure on the connector has an extra polished flat structure; APC (Angled Physical Contact) indicates that the ceramic ferrule structure on the connector has an extra polished 8° angle structure.
3.0 mm diameter multi fiber cables that consist of 8 fibers (each diameter is 250 micron) that are manufactured with ITU-T G657.A2 bend sensitive fibers. All fibers tubed (each diameter is 1.8 mm) with use divider that a special solution, in both sides, then assembled at one end with SC type; other end with LC type connectors.

Quality production Stages For SC/APC-LC/UPC | 8 Fibers Fanout | Single Mode G657.A2 | 3.0/1.8mm
So what should be taken into consideration when choosing a ‘good’ SC/APC-LC/UPC | 8 Fibers Fanout | Single Mode G657.A2 | 3.0/1.8mm? What are the features that one should look for that defines the quality of any connector,fan out or jumper assembly? In order to appreciate the significance of a standard compliant product, one must first understand the process of actually making an optical connector assembly and the potential problems that could occur at each of the stages.
There are three main processes in the termination of a Fan-out Cable, Preparation, Termination and Polishing and a total of 15 steps where negligence at any one of the steps will result in an inferior fan-out assembly. Each process consists of small steps, and each step requires strict Quality Control of not only the equipment used, but also how each step is carried out.
