Product Description

LC APC to LC UPC patch cord is a fiber optic patch cord that uses LC connectors, one of which uses APC (Angled Physical Contact) plug type, and the other connector uses UPC (Ultra Physical Contact) plug type.

In the LC APC to LC UPC jumper, the end face of the APC connector is tilted to form a small tilt angle, usually 8 degrees. This inclined design can reduce the reflection of optical signals at the connection, thereby reducing reflection loss. APC connectors are commonly used in applications that require lower reflection losses, such as fiber optic communication systems, fiber optic sensors, and high-precision measurements.

The end face of the UPC connector is flat and has no tilt angle. UPC connectors are suitable for general fiber optic connection needs and provide good insertion loss and return loss performance.

The LC APC to LC UPC jumper is designed to combine the advantages of both APC and UPC connector types. Usually, APC connectors are used at the starting end of optical signal transmission to reduce reflection loss and ensure signal quality. While UPC connectors are used at the receiving end to provide good insertion loss and return loss performance.
