The Qualified FC connector is designed to meet the harsh environments of aerospace applications however it is affordable enough to be used wherever a rugged FC connector is needed. The QFC can mate to a standard FC connector and be used with almost any fiber type or cable construction.
Suitable for single-mode, polarization maintaining and multimode fibers up to 880um
Ceramic ferules for better performance over time and in high vibration.
Integrated connector key for reliability
Hytrel 8068 boots are vacuum baked for 24 hours to pass NASA outgassing requirements
Wrench flats on coupling nut so that the connector can be torqued to 7 in-lbs
Built in the USA with Quality Components
The assembly process is the most important factor in guaranteeing performance on this connector. The assembly process used at Coastal Connection comes from a 2 year, multimillion dollar effort to qualify and build another single-mode connector for thermal cycling in space.
