What Is SC/UPC-LC/APC | Single Mode G657.A2 Simplex Patch Cord | 2.0mm?
SC/UPC–LC/APC | Single Mode G657.A2 Simplex Patch Cord | 2.0mm is a fiber-optic patch cable capped at either end with Fiber optic connectors that allow it to be rapidly and conveniently connected to CATV, an optical switch,Optical Transceiver Modules SFP ,Media converter or other telecommunication and network equipment and switch. Its thick layer of protection is used to connect the optical transmitter, receiver, and the terminal box.
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.
2.0 mm diameter patch cord cables are manufactured with ITU-T G657.A2 bend sensitive fibers, then assembled at one end with SC type; other end with LC type connectors.

Quality production Stages For SC/UPC-LC/APC | Single Mode G657.A2 Simplex Patch Cord | 2.0mm
So what should be taken into consideration when choosing a ‘good’ SC/UPC-LC/APC | Single Mode G657.A2 Simplex Patch Cord | 2.0mm? What are the features that one should look for that defines the quality of any connector 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 jumper Patch Cable, Preparation, Termination and Polishing and a total of 15 steps where negligence at any one of the steps will result in an inferior jumper 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.
preparation of fiber cable
- Stripping of outer cable jacket
- trimming of kevlar fibers to length
- Stripping of 900um buffer
- clean bare fiber
- check fiber for damage
- mix two part epoxy
- degas epoxy
- check ferule id
termination of fiber cable
- inject epoxy and insert fiber
- crimp kevlar to back post
- crimp outer jacket
- cure connector in oven
polishing of connector end face
- cleave fiber
- Remove excess epoxy by hand or machine
- polish end-face by grinding machine
