Universal Connectors and Hybrid Patchcords

Key Features

  • Allows patchcords with different connector types to be mated
  • Connectors with different ferrule sizes supported
  • Minimizes losses between fibers with different core sizes and numerical apertures
  • Male to female (hybrid) connector versions
  • Rugged And Compact Design


Universal connectors are designed to allow one to mate two patchcords that have different connectors on their ends. This is essential when working with components and equipment from different suppliers, which in turn use different connectors. Universal connectors come in three major variations. The simplest are butt joint style universal connectors. These connectors have different female receptacles on either side. The patchcords are simply plugged into either side and the fiber ends butt together in the middle.
