ST fibre connectors could be considered to be one of the best for networking applications as they remain a popular choice for such innovations, an expert has said.
According to Nick Locke of Nicab, writing for Electronics Weekly, the ST is suitable for both short distance requirements and in long-line links.
Another device for newer network applications is the SC, which includes a square connector and moulded housing, while for duplex needs, consumers may prefer to opt for an FDDI.
Furthermore, MT-RJ connectors are smaller than the SC - which they were designed to replace - and are the size of an ordinary phone jack making them easy to connect and disconnect, while SMA, D4 and Bionic connectors are decreasing in popularity.
Meanwhile, in a previous article for the website, Mr Locke noted that for connectors that do not mix signals, shoppers could opt for a Tyco Flatpaq or the Domino modular systems, which can be configured to match numerous configurations.
