Introduction to LC/APC Singlemode Quad Fiber Optic Adapter/Coupler
An LC/APC (Lucent Connector/Angled Physical Contact) singlemode quad fiber optic adapter is a type of fiber optic connector used in optical communication systems.
- One-piece Design Dust Cap prevents the adapter from dust and keep it clean
- Stainless Steel Clip allows for easy snap-in installation without tools
- Zirconia Ceramic Sleeve enables low insertion loss with high-precision alignment
- Quad configuration, allowing for 4 fibers to be connected in a compact form factor
With high-precision components and tool-less design, the adapters allow two devices to communicate from a distance through a direct connection with the fiber optic line.

FAQs on LC/APC Singlemode Quad Fiber Optic Adapter/Coupler
What’s the difference between LC/APC and LC/UPC
LC/APC and LC/UPC are both types of connectors used in fiber optic communication systems. The main difference between them is the way they terminate the fiber and the resulting optical performance.
LC/APC (Angled Physical Contact) connectors use an angled endface to minimize the amount of reflected light. The angled endface causes the light to reflect at an angle, reducing the amount of reflected light that enters the core of the fiber. This reduces the back reflection and return loss, making LC/APC connectors ideal for high-speed digital systems, long-haul transmission, and analog systems where low insertion loss and high return loss are critical. LC/APC connectors have a green-colored connector housing.
LC/UPC (Ultra Physical Contact) connectors have a flat endface and provide good optical performance for most applications. They are typically used in short-reach digital communication systems, such as local area networks (LANs), fiber to the home (FTTH), and fiber to the premise (FTTP). LC/UPC connectors have a blue-colored connector housing.
Generally speaking, LC/APC connectors are designed for applications that require low back reflection and high return loss, while LC/UPC connectors are suitable for most applications that require good optical performance.
