LC Patchcord

LC Patchcord

The innovative LC design offers a form factor one-half the size of current industry standards, and simple features create a new definition of user-friendliness.
The LC connector is manufactured to meet EIA/TIA 568A, FOCIS 10, IEC 61754-20 and IEC 11801 specifications for optical performance and intermateability. The LC Duplex fits into the RJ-45 standard cutout and uses the smallest diameter cable jacket in the industry.
