The ST connector features nickel- plated brass construction and includes zirconia ferrules that minimize field polishing time. The one-piece device has a closed STII-style bayonet. Other features include singlemode and multimode operation, integrated crimp-style Kevlar retention, corrosion resistance, and long-boot or pigtail-boot options with color-coded boots. The connector is also compatible with 125- and 142-micron fiber-optic cables. Typical applications include local area networks, data-processing networks, premises installations, instrumentation, and marine deployment.
