The Panduit FLCSSCBUY OptiCam LC Fiber Optic Connector is a single-mode 9/125μm OS1/OS2 simplex fiber connector, intended for 900-micron tight-buffered fiber installation. Field termination can be done in about two minutes using the OptiCam 2 Termination Tool. The pre-polished fiber end face eliminates time-consuming field polishing, reducing installation costs. The LC connector has a natural-colored body with a blue-colored backbone and 900μm boot.
The optical gel acts as a medium for which the light can pass between the two ends of the fiber. The optical gel has a refractive index very close to that of the fiber core making a nearly seamless connection that results in a minimal loss. One of the quickest and most reliable ways is to utilize an index matching fluid or index matching optical gel deployed between cleaved ends of two optical fibers. The optical gel acts as a matching medium between the two cleaved or polished ends of the fiber minimizing the reflections and therefore minimizing the loss. Without the gel (or with a gel that did not closely match the IOR of the fiber being mated), the reflections would be severe (low return loss) and could cause significant loss of light (high insertion loss).
Panduit giving you the best way to reduce your cost and make a precision type for your result. with this optic connector, you have no worries. This gel is deployed at the end of the fiber stub in the connector (in the factory) and because of its thixotropic nature and the design of the OptiCam® Connector, it will not migrate while sitting on the shelf (unterminated) or while
deployed in the field.
